National Final Countdown 2023 open for voting!



The national final season for Eurovision 2024 is almost upon us! From December to March, many countries across Europe will hold national selections to choose their act to perform in Malmö.


However, before we get there we want to look back on some of the greatest songs of all time in our seventh annual National Final Countdown.


The countdown is for Eurofans from all over the world to vote on their favourite songs from past national finals who didn't make it to the Eurovision Song Contest.


The top 100 songs are then revealed in a special broadcast and countdown on ESCape Radio on Saturday 4 November.


The 2022 edition saw KEiiNO win back-to-back titles with 'Monument' while other winners have included Electric Fields with '2000 and Whatever', Loreen's 'Statements', and Wiktoria's 'As I Lay Me Down'.


You can see the Top 100 results from previous editions here:



Voting


You need to choose your Top 10 national final songs of all time and put them in the usual Eurovision scoring order (12 points down to 1 point) and vote here.


To help, we have a long list based on the results of your previous voting, some older entries plus some of this year's biggest national final songs (but don't worry there is a way to add any song that isn't named!).


This long list is available as a drop-down option when you vote.


So review the longlist below, come up with your top 10, and then vote via the link below by 22 October 2023.
