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!
So far we’ve already gone through your Top 10s from the Big 5, Ireland, Scandinavia and have started on the rest of Western Europe. Our penultimate inductee from this group is Austria, and over the last couple of weeks you’ve been busy choosing your Top 20. But as much as we’d love to give all these Austrian songs a spot in the Eurovision Ireland Hall of Fame, there’s only one pedestal up for grabs – meaning you’ve still got some tough decisions to make! Time to cast your votes!
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 peek 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 to zero, so it really is anyone’s game! Any one of these 20 songs has the chance to be crowned your favourite Eurovision song from Austria 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 and our YouTube channel (what do you mean you’re not subscribed yet? Go and do it now!) – so don’t delay, cast your votes!!
Remember, the poll results are secret till the video – it’s still working, it just won’t show you who everyone else voted for!
