Due to the ever increasing number of participating countries at the Eurovision Song Contest, the Semi Final first was introduced in 2004, from 2004 to 2007 it was only one and since 2008 there are two Semi Finals. As we know that the Top Ten of each Semi Final will make it into the Grand Final, where together with the current host nation and the Big Five (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) fighting for the Trophy of the Eurovision Song Contest and the right to host the event the following year's edition of the contest.

Since last summer Radio International started this feature during the show as a monthly item where fans had submitted their Top 20 Semi Final songs that did not make it to the Grand Final but should have and each month a chart of a listener was broadcast during the show. Radio International is collecting the listeners' choice and together with your input will compile a Top 40 of the Eurovision Semi Final Songs and schedule it for broadcast as the last show of Radio International in 2014.

What you need to do?


Simply let us know your 20 songs that according to you should have qualified for the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest but did not manage. Rank them in the order you like them best. Your favourite is Number 1 and least favourite is your Number 20. Email the list to Radio International via the website's CONTACT link and JP with his team will compile the overall Top 40 Semi Final songs.
