The 'Expert' Panel is returning for a 4th year judging and ranking the 39 songs in this year's Eurovision Song Contest. Last year the Panel voted Iceland as the best song, for more information feel free to check out the show HERE (http://www.escunited.com/t7028)

The Panel members have been chosen and you can click on the pictures for their bio. These are all very skilled experts with superior expertise. They'll have the honor of judging the 39 entries and give each song a set amount of points. The scales goes from 5 Points (Amazing) to 0 Points (Awful). The scores will then get added up and then it's your turn (aka "The Angry Mob" to rank the song. A poll will be posted for the entry that's currently being judged. You'll get to rank them accordingly and the most option wins meaning if most people give a song 4 points, that's the score we'll be issuing. EXCEPTION: If the second most popular answer is within 7% of the top answer, we will then combine the votes and divide it by two accordingly. This may sound complicated but is as simple as can be. Just relax and enjoy the comments of our wacky panel.

Been on the panel the last 2 years, so will apply again, although not approving of these changes at all.

I loved the panel in the previous years but I am not fond of the changes... I think that the scores won't be realistic enough because of songs being judged by different groups of people...

I was on the panel the past 2 years and it was a blast, will apply again :). BTW, is it still anonymous or not anymore?

bashers
17th February 2013, 13:57
Have been on the Panel for the past couple of years - LOVE IT! Will definitely apply again. Will we need a character name or not? I feel it won't be as consistent with scores though and people won't get to know their favourite judge. However, thanks for doing it again Matt - I know it you ages to sort it all out etc. Can't wait!

I don't like this new format. It goes against the word "expert" in it. Obviously, nobody's opinions are meant to be taken as superior here, but it's just a funny silly game and this make-believe professionalism of the panelists was the whole fun of it. We have all sorts of egalitarian voting games, why make it another such, when it used to be an original, unique concept?

Matt
17th February 2013, 16:10
The last few years we were criticized cause the game was too exclusive, same peple are picked and boring to those not being picked.

This year it appears the criticism is still the same just the other way around. If people really prefer 8 people play this game rather than everyone getting a shot, speak up and I'll change it to how it was last year.

Hi Matt

I prefer that a little groupe of people comment on / give their vote on every song. I dont mind staying in the angry mob.

Matt
17th February 2013, 16:23
I put a poll up, whatever makes the players happy, we'll do. Unfortunately I can only keep the poll open until midnight as there is a lot of behind the scenes work to do so vote ASAP for your favorite option.

Okay, the polls results: 66% of you voted in favor of returning to the old rules so your wish shall be my command. I revised the rules. Please apply if you want to take part. I kinda did this in a rush so if I missed any details feel free to let me know.

I have a suggestion. Maybe the panelists' number to be increased, so more people to have the chance to be panelists?

I already asked Matt, suggesting this. He said it would be too much work for him.

Matt
18th February 2013, 22:55
Correct, it already takes a long time with 8 or 9 panelists, imaging adding even more. Plus there are other factors, one is that people can and want only read so much so the option was to have five comments per country and everyone can take part or 8 or 9 panelists doing it all and the majority has spoken :D

Mozz
18th February 2013, 23:04
(^ imaging adding even more = imagine adding even more) (I didn't understand at first)

Could maybe someone else take over organizing the expert panel ? Daniels1000, Jukica, Trece or Eurovisionsmile?

Or they can split them between them, and let's say Matt will be responsible for the 10 panelists, Juki for 10 other, and Daniel for the rest. xthink

Yes, give Daniel double number of panelists :twisted: (I just said some random numbers, it could be different :lol:)

Mozz
18th February 2013, 23:12

Actually I don't, not with this tone, young man :o

But I mean, since you have so little time, since you're going to Malmo and you need to do so much (I don't know what exactly, but well), maybe it's a good idea to let someone take over. Sometimes you just had to delegate as an admin (You, do this and you, do that)

Wow, a number of 10 + 10 + some more is way too extreme even if just used as examples. I'm thinking more of...12-15 panelists.

I'd love to take part finally, but I don't like though that this is usually done before all the final/revamped versions have been released... which makes it a bit hard to give a fair judging.

bashers
18th February 2013, 23:16
I was going to say....15+ is way too much for us to read let alone Matt to work on! Round it to 10 maybe..?!

Matt
18th February 2013, 23:17
There is a lot of delegating going on and all the Mods have their hands full already :D. And we'll help each other out where we can.

And as I said, it's more than just the amount of work on my/our part. So it'll be 9 panelists + The Angry Mob.

Yeah although it is a game :-) Hence why people can make fictional characters etc. It's fun guessing which member is behind the character!

Yes, In the past 2 years I've had trouble with deadlines because of final versions not being available. UK's announcement on the 18th will make things rather...hectic.

You are able to change your score in comments if a change was made to the song, wheter if it's a revamped version or whatever.

20th February 2013, 20:16
While the applications are coming in (Man, there are some good ones) I'd like to get your input. The Angry Mob always votes using the same point system. My question to you is: Do you think the Angry Mob should have a bit more of a say meaning, instead of only having a 10% say give them maybe 20%? If yes, how should we change it. IF you think the way things are is fine with you, let me know. I just want to make sure the Mob is being heard.

QwaarJet
20th February 2013, 21:03
Last time, I felt with things as they were the mob had a pretty big influence as is. This is the expert panel after all, so the "mob" should only have a very limited influence. 10% is fine/

Eau: Oh, I have something to tell you Liz...! O dear!

Liz: Oh, what is it? Did you try on a the new panty color from Christian Dior?

Eau: No no no... it's about something else. Something completely else. You know I rarely visit normal supermarkets...they're too common for me. But this morning I read in the magazine 'Cuisine Pour L'Upperclass' that they awared a new tart from one of those supermarkets with 5 golden stars. My curiosity was hard to control, I had to try one of them. So I rushed in my Mercedes to the city and....

Liz: Oooooh.....??

Eau: So I stormed to the bakery section, bought one of those prized tarts , went back to my car and I just couldn't control myself, hihihihi, so I took a bite from it. Oh and I can tell you Liz, it was wonderfully delicious. I've never tasted anything like that before. It was so edible that I ate the whole tart. I meant to go and try just one, but I couldn't help myself but had to buy a whole truckload from them.

Liz: Oh?? How many did you buy?

Eau: Quite a few boxes, I didn't count them. But do you know what was even more surprising? I was so curious about how the the ingredients, so I asked the lady at the bakery counter about the recipe. She said she didn't know, but what she could tell me was that the tart was made in Finland, based on a traditional Finnish recipe.

Liz: That sounds amazing!! What a surprise...Who would've thought something so good could come from the European continent?

Eau: Exactly my dear...some continental tarts can taste surprisingly well. The tart from Finland is a huge surprise. 4 Points to the Finnish tart.

E.g.: if a song has many 5s and 0s, people who voted 4 or 1 may switch their votes at the last minute to the closest best option.
I'm not saying that it's bad, but it's completely different from last year's game.

Yes, I dooo remember visiting San Marino Palace last year and how we had a nice time there. We're grateful for your hospitality. Everything was just absolutely delizioso....We especially enjoyed your food specialities: duck, goose and FOIE GRAS.

The poll results

5 Points = 18.75%
4 Points = 18.75%
3 Points = 21.88%
2 Points = 9.38%
1 Point = 15.63%
0 Points = 15.63%

3 Points received the most votes however as per the game rules since the votes were within a certain margin, the second highest option will be added. since both 5 & 4 points tied. We will add all points up and divide it by three. 3 + 4 + 5 = 12 / 3 = 4. So the angry Mob gives 4 Points to Finland bringing up the total score to 39.
Remember, in case of a tie, the Angry Mob points will be used as the tie breaker.

Stay tuned for ::hr

CROATIA

Eau: Aaah, it's the Croatian entry. Such a calming melody. Memories arise of the times I spent in the Austrian mountains in the 1960s with my cousin's cousin, princess Sisi. Doesn't this music just caress your ears, Liz?
Liz: Hmmm, I guess it does. It's totally unassuming and inoffensive.
Eau: I could play this in my musical soirées and everyone would praise me for having such an excellent and eccentric taste in music. The melody is just so pleasant and the vocal qualities of the six gentlemen is simply superbe. This entry is truly a gift for my music collection.
Liz: I must say it's a bit different from what we're used to from Croatia.
Eau: Yes, it's not the typical Croatian disco schlager or the eternal ethno ballad. This one is surprisingly authentic.
Liz: But will it do well you think?
Eau: It will depend on who else is in their semi. You see, the Ex-Yugo countries always support each other as much as they can. They tend to vote for each other no matter what they send. Still I want to support this entry and will give it 4 points.

The verses build up nicely but the chorus lets me down. And I thought they sang about the 'Cappella Sistina' somewhere

This will bring them back to the final nonetheless... will have a similar result to Latvia 2007 methinks.

4 Points = 13.85% (9)
3 Points = 21.54% (14)
2 Points = 20.00% (13)
1 Point = 10.77% (7)
0 Points = 13.85% (9)


Another mixed bag with the Mob clearly not agreeing a whole lot so we once again have to combine points and divide accordingly. 5 + 3 + 2 = 10 / 3 = 3.3


Panel Score: 43
Mob Score: 3.3

Final Score: 46.3

HUNGARY

http://i48.tinypic.com/2qurvv5.png
Well, the gentleman can't really sing. He's without a doubt one of the weakest vocalists in this competition. But sometimes a great voice isn't necessary for a great song or doesn't even fit a particular type of song. And this time, the voice matches the song quite nicely actually. And what a sweet song. I think I could sing this to my grandchildren.

http://i46.tinypic.com/214b47d.png
Except that you don't speak any Hungarian, Eau... Do you think this has a chance at qualifying?

http://i48.tinypic.com/2qurvv5.png
Oh no, don't be ridiculous Liz. Of course not. No this is Eurovision and this simply does not have enough of the shiny lightweight plastic that the usual Eurovision songs carry with them. I mean where's the fanfare, the carnaval, the colourful lights and the bare hips? Nowhere. This music genre will always produce very poor results in Eurovision. It's quite unfortunate because the genre can produce quite some pearls from time to time. It's usually very pure, mostly spontaneously composed music, with nice melodies.

http://i46.tinypic.com/214b47d.png
I see. No, you're absolutely right. This will have a hard time qualifying.

http://i48.tinypic.com/2qurvv5.png

Why you agree with these two and not with me, fellow Swede? I said the same things with these two, but I gave it 3 points because it's a good song.

Dark Master is very cruel to give this song only 1 point. He really is Dark Monster, not Dark Master. I suggest to fire him as soon as possible.

It's time for the Angry Mob results for Hungary.


5 Points = 33.96% (18)
4 Points = 11.32% (6)
3 Points = 16.98% (9)
2 Points = 13.21% (7)
1 Point = 13.21% (7)
0 Points = 11.32% (6)

So a clear majority wants to give Hungary the big 5 pointers giving them a nice big boost in the ranking. So ByeAlex went from 33 up to 38 points.
