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, and we’ve already crowned your winners for Iceland and Finland. Over these last few weeks, you’ve been selecting your favourite Danish entries to decide who you want in the final. We have our 20 finalists, so it’s time to decide which one of them enters the Eurovision Ireland Hall of Fame as the Best of Eurovision for Denmark!
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.

There was a 4-way tie for 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th place. To keep a Top 10 for the final, the 4 entries were put to Eurovision Ireland’s 5 person jury, who each voted for their Top 2. 2002 was chosen by unanimously, while 2006 was selected by 4/5 of our jurors.
But don’t let these results influence you – all scores have been reset to zero, so anyone can seize victory! Any one of these 20 songs could be crowned your favourite Eurovision song from Denmark and win that coveted spot in the Eurovision Ireland Hall of Fame!
Use your votes wisely – as always, you can vote for your Top 10! The results will be announced in a video and posted to the website – so don’t delay, cast your vote now!!
