Every year since 2009, OGAE has conducted a pre-Euromusic Contest poll in which every national club plus OGAE Rest of the World vote all entries, using the same scoring system of Euromusic Voting (the most voted songs on each club receive 1 to 8, and then 10 and 12 points, and countries can't vote for themselves). The winners of this poll are:
