Best of the Big 5

#POLL – Best of the Big 5 – UNITED KINGDOM – 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.

It’s finally here – the last poll in our Best of the Big 5 series! You’ve spent the last two weeks voting for your favourite entries from the United Kingdom and we have out 20 finalists. But with only one spot in the Eurovision Ireland Hall of Fame, who will it go to?

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.

But don’t let these results influence you – all scores have been reset, so it really is anyone’s game! Any one of these 20 songs could be crowned your favourite Eurovision song from the United Kingdom!

As well as bragging rights ad infinitum, the winner of our poll will also be granted passage into the hallowed Eurovision Ireland Hall of Fame – exciting stuff!

Use your votes wisely – as always, you can vote for your Top 10! The results will be announced in a video that will be posted next week – so don’t delay, cast your vote!
