      1. Hi Archie, thanks for your comments. This poll is in no way fixed. It just so happens that a lot of our readers are from Ireland or are fans of Nicky Byrne in particular. If you check the Twitter account linked to the blog you will see that Nicky Byrne’s fans have widely shared the link to the poll and encouraged other fans to vote. And I wouldn’t be so sure about Ireland not qualifying for the final. We’ll have to wait until May to find that out.


      2. To Author But the thing is. It’s all of the polls. How did San Marino Get In? And Georgia. They are obvs fixed. And u know it! And how did Spain And Germany not get in? Pure fixed😑


      3. I just think that people shouldn’t give a country loads of points at a time. People should be allowed to do 2 a day..


      4. I’ve replied to all your comments. I’ve already explained to you how the polls are not fixed. How is the most popular songs topping the polls indicate a fix. Just because you don’t like a certain song doesn’t mean that everyone feels the same. I singlehandedly run this blog in my spare time for a bit of fun. Please take your rude comments elsewhere.


      5. How Am I Being Rude? Your Being Rude To Me! And lets see The Betting Odds….
        Ireland 26th
        Albania 37th!
        And how Is Australlia In the Bottom. These Websites Are What Makes Eurovision BORING


      6. How are you not being rude to me? You’re trolling my blog. I don’t think I’ve been rude to you, if anything I’ve been very patient with you. Look at the end of the day the votes speak for themselves. Fans of Albania and Ireland are voting for the songs and that’s why they are ahead in the polls. The betting odds also don’t count for much. They very rarely pick the winner. I will take your feedback on board and in the knockout stages of this contest I will make it that it’s only one vote per person.
