Insta Report Part 1: The five most popular Instagram accounts of this year’s contestants

Once again, we have checked out all 39 artists of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest on Instagram and picked those 15 accounts that we thought are worth sharing! Today, we’re focusing on the five accounts with the most followers. 

 

1. Måneskin

Representing: Italy

Instagram account: maneskinofficial

Followers: 1.2 million

By far the biggest number of followers for any Eurovision 2021 act: 1.2 million!

The Italian band can look back on 4 years of active use of the social media platform. Since May 2017 (that’s at least the oldest currently public post), they have fed their followers’ feed with a rich mix of performance captures, video stills and photos of all kinds.

In large parts keeping an aesthetic that reminds of classic paintings, sometimes it’s just about rock’n’roll and life before Coronavirus.

They prove to be a band that’s neither afraid of colours…

Just like Måneskin, striking colours aren’t a rarity on Benny’s Insta, either, but sometimes, an expressive monochrome shot is just as good.

We like it when a musician’s account isn’t just about their music and promoting their music.

Not sure what prospect Benny has regarding points in Rotterdam – despite his Insta fame – but at least he had a good enough view here.

She shows us a lot of creative shots and examples of her music. But as we all know, she’s also not hiding her positions on one or another topic – as the famous photo below proves, which you probably already have seen somewhere before.

She’s also mixing art and body positivity, and the result is just beautiful and earns our respect:

What else we love about Manizha? Her sense of humour, for sure, as she’s referring to this (apparently Lithuanian) product:

…and then it took us this long, and scrolling down to New Year’s Day 2013, until we saw the first cat pic of any artist so far.

4. Blas Cantó

Representing: Spain

Instagram account: blascanto_es

Like most other Eurovision entrants, Blas just mixes stills from TV performances, selfies and other photographs.

On his account, we found a high frequency of Blas making funny faces, not sure what we’re thinking of that, but there’s also his cute dog.

Back to Blas, you say? OK, we found a photo in which he’s not making a funny face, hang on…

5. Stefania

Representing: Greece

Instagram account: stefania_

Followers: 313k

With a pretty mixed gallery, young Stefania made it to over 313,000 followers on Instagram, and is obviously ready for Rotterdam:

Not without surprise, her gallery is not as sophisticated, artistic or adult as the ones we’ve talked about here so far, but sometimes all you need is that dive into a ball pit.

In an older shot, in another time in world history, she’s apparently already ready for the Netherlands – but that’s not a big surprise knowing that she lives in the Netherlands:

…and as a part of that world we used to know, and which we hopefully regain back soon, she’s also not a stranger to open-air performances.
