Roughly 2.6 million people watched the last broadcast on May 18, 2019, when John Lundvik represented Sweden in the music competition show in Israel. This was an audience share of 79.1 percent among people aged 3 to 99 years. By contrast, the number of viewers amounted to approximately 3.63 million in 2016.
