Best of the Big 5

#POLL – Best of the Big 5 – GERMANY – VOTE for your all time favourite!

Let’s face it, for all the complaining that the Big 5 have it easy at the Eurovision Song Contest, it’s actually not so glamourous. Sure they get an automatic spot in the final, but for many years this didn’t translate into placing on the scoreboard!

In this new series, ‘Best of the Big 5’, Eurovision Ireland are going to put the spotlight on the contest’s major financial contributors and find out just who is your favourite for each country.

Over the last two weeks, you’ve been voting for your favourite German Eurovision entry – and we have our 20 finalists! But who do you want to give that spot in the Eurovision Ireland Hall of Fame? Let’s find out!

Here are the fully adjudicated results from both our semi finals, one for songs from odd numbered years and one for even. Both polls are now closed, but if you want to take a peak and see where the other songs ranked, check them out on our Odd Years Poll and Even Years Poll.bes
