That was it! For the 3rd consecutive year, ESCToday, in an exclusive collaboration with the INFE Network, brought and presented you the results from each of the 22 participating fan clubs around the continent and beyond, up until the winner’s announcement!

Day by day, each individual fan club of the INFE (International Network of Fanclubs of Eurovision) Network was voting for their favourite Eurovision 2019 entries within the traditional Eurovision style: 12 points for their top favourite song, 10 points for their second favourite and from 8 to 1 point for the rest countries making up their Top 10!

The very last club to reveal its points and bring this process to an end is this INFE Rest of the World, which consists of a number of Eurovision fan clubs from across the globe, featuring members from both non-EBU member countries and non-participating countries.
