Building on the success of our Best of the Big 5 series, Eurovision Ireland is now broadening its search for your favourite entries from countries across the continent, spanning the contest’s entire back catalogue – that’s well over 1500 songs!
You told us you wanted to vote for your Top 10s from Scandinavia, so we begun our Nordic journey in Iceland and now move on to Finland. Over the last few weeks you’ve been making your choices from the semi-finals and we have our 20 finalists – but as we all know, there’s only spot in the Eurovision Ireland Hall of Fame with Finland’s name on it! So it’s time to decide who gets it!
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.
