From Denmark we head to Ireland, the most successful nation in the Eurovision Song Contest, but now 22 years on from their last victory in the contest.
As ever 50% of the vote is being decided by national juries and 50% by you, the public. This creates the most accurate representation of a result likely to be seen in the final of the Eurovision Song Contest this May in Lisbon.
Each voting nation is represented by a jury consisting of past Eurovision, Junior Eurovision and national final participants. Each juror is asked to form a top 10 ranking of their favourite competing songs which is combined with the other jurors in their country. On the jury for Ireland are:
- Eamonn Toal – Represented Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2000 with the song “Millennium of Love”
- Muireann McDonnell – Represented Ireland at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Tbilisi, Georgia
The results of the Irish jury from 1 to 12 points is as follows:
- 1 point – Finland – Saara Aalto – Monsters
- 2 points – Croatia – Franka – Crazy
- 3 points – Belgium – Sennek – A Matter of Time
- 4 points – Armenia – Sevak Khanagyan – Qami
- 5 points – Belarus – Alekseev – Forever
- 6 points – Sweden – Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance You Off
- 7 points – Cyprus – Eleni Foureria – Fuego
- 8 points – Portugal – Claudia Pascoal & Isaura – O Jardim
- 10 points – Spain – Amaia & Alfred – Tu cancion
- 12 points – Australia – Jessica Mauboy – We Got Love
This means after three juries the top ten is as follows:
- Australia – Jessica Mauboy – We Got Love – 24 points
- Sweden – Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance You Off – 18 points
- Czech Republic – Mikolas Josef – Lie to Me – 18 points
- Finland – Saara Aalto – Monsters – 13 points
- Israel – Netta Barzilai – Toy – 13 points
- Belarus – Alekseev – Forever – 12 points
- Switzerland – Zibbz – Stones – 12 points
- Cyprus – Eleni Foureria – Fuego – 11 points
- Spain – Amaia & Alfred – Tu cancion – 10 points
- Belgium – Sennek – A Matter of Time – 9 points
Twenty-five countries are yet to score a point from the national juries.
