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 we’ve nearly finished with the rest of Western Europe – only Portugal left to go! Over the last few weeks you’ve been voting for your Top 20 from both Portugal’s Odd and Even years, but as we all know, that’s only half the job! There’s just one spot in the Eurovision Ireland Hall of Fame with Portugal’s name on it, so it’s 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 Portugal 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!
REMEMBER! AS ALWAYS, YOU CAN VOTE FOR YOUR TOP 10!
DO NOT VOTE FOR JUST ONE! SPREAD THE LOVE AROUND!
