UK Eurovision song poll 2023: The results



This year the United Kingdom will be hosting the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time in 25 years. The UK are hosting the Contest on behalf last year's winners Ukraine due to the ongoing invasion in the country.


As the UK is hosting the Contest in Liverpool and to celebrate the 23rd April, which is Saint George's Day in England, we conducted a poll looking for everyone's favourite UK Eurovision entries from 1957 to 2023.



Voters submitted their top 10 favourite UK Eurovision songs. There were 66 entries to choose from, right back to the beginning with Patricia Bredin's song 'All' to this year's UK entry 'I Wrote A Song' by Mae Muller. The voting system was like Eurovision with 12, 10 and 8 points for your top three selections and 7 points to 1 point for your remaining top 10.


Over the week 183 of you completed our ‘UK Eurovision Song Poll’.


We received a huge response from UK fans with 56% taking part, overtaking the Australian voters who made up 25% of the poll, the remaining 19% of the voters were from the rest of the world.
