This chart represents the combined charting positions of recording artists discovered by the plethora of TV shows out there determined to find the next big thing. Whether its Idol, ...Got Talent or X Factor, they all have one goal in common - to find someone who can line the purses of a record company with money. Please note when Eurovision comes around, the winning song will be eligible to enter only AFTER it wins (assuming it wasn't already charting under previous rules). The artist will only be eligible for further entries if they meet the standard of being discovered through a reality show type of competition.
This chart compiles data from the following countries:
Australia (Top 100 Singles & Albums) New Zealand (Top 40 Singles & Albums) United Kingdom (Top 100 Singles & Top 200 Albums) Scotland (Top 100 Singles & Albums) Wales (Top 75 Singles & Albums) Ireland (Top 100 Singles & Top 100 Albums) United States of America (Top 100 Singles & Top 200 Albums) Canada (Top 100 Singles & Top 100 Albums) Denmark (Top 40 Singles & Albums) Sweden (Top 100 Singles & Top 60 Albums) Netherlands (Top 100 Singles & Albums) Germany (Top 100 Singles & Albums)
