It’s back! After our break to cover the Eurovision Song Contest 2022, Eurovision Ireland is returning to its search for your all time favourite entries from countries across the continent, spanning the contest’s entire back catalogue – which as of 2022, is now over 1600 songs!
We started with the Best of the Big 5, then looked through Scandinavia and Western Europe – meaning you’ve chosen your favourites from Austria, Australia, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom! Next to join the countries already in the Hall of Fame is Israel!
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.
