    The ESC United "Expert Panel" 2018 - We have a winner!

    Hello everybody!

    We will once again be doing the infamous "Expert" Panel on the main website this year, with our editors and writing staff picking apart the 43 songs for Lisbon. But of course, the website would be nothing without #YOU - so this is your chance to make your opinion heard on a much wider platform!

    After we have been able to take apart the songs, we will turn it over to #YOU! The public 'televote' will be added to our scores to give an overall ESC United rating of the songs this year, but if you fancy praising or criticizing the songs yourself you can do so in this very thread! The best short reviews from both social media and this forum will be featured on the main website for thousands of Eurovision fans to see, so make sure to be as creatively opinionated on the songs as possible!

    We begin tomorrow with a fan favourite - Spain - before continuing on through the 43 songs in random order. Which song will come out on top between the staff and the public? Stay tuned to find out!

    Re: The ESC United "Expert Panel" 2018 - DAY 1 (SPAIN)

    Hi there from your Asian brother!

    'Tu Cancion' - As a first impression, I don't like the song. I find the music arrangement too generic and the vocals too amateur to secure any points from me.
    However, after 2-3 times of listening, I began to appreciate the heart and soul being put in making this song one of (if not) the most quietly romantic song of this season.

    I give this song 2 points for the originality and the soulfulness, but not something I would vote as my Top 10 in real ESC.

    Note: Spain seems determined to maintain their reputation to stay at the bottom of the final scoreboard, (almost) every year, since 2005.

    Although i like the melody.. the lyrics and the way they express their feelings on stage is too in your face. I feel like they force me to believe they 're in love.. 5 points because they are cute and the song is not that bad..!

    While X my heart is definitely not revolutionary, it's a good pop tune and the revamp made it even groovier. I think most people are underrating the song and the vocal abilities of Aisel. Also we know her team will be bringing great staging. A 8/10 for me. Also Aisel's name means moon so Aisel, moon me up.

    It's just a normal song, but thats not.enough in Eurovision. You need to have someething special or you will not get enough televotes. It will probably just qualify for the final. 6/10

    I guess I'm the only one who thinks this is a poor man's "Monsters", considerably because Swedish songwriters worked on both of these. Same key, similar bpm, both solo female vocalists... except that "Monsters" has a better feel to be a gay club anthem for quite a bit if it wants to while "X My Heart" is pretty much the musical equivalent of that girl in its music video who would be a typical garden party attendee and that is way too young for nightclubs. "X My Heart" is innocent (and kids like saying nonsense at their small age xD that might as well explain why is it a lyrical mess?) while "Monsters" is fierce. For an Azeri attempt, it's way weaker than usual and by all the makings of it, it should seem like a nonqualifier but what wouldn't Azerbaijan do to keep seeing themselves in the scoreboard year after year...

    6/10 or 7/10... that is the question... I'm assuming I'll be generous enough to give it a halfway score. 6.5/10

    Re: The ESC United "Expert Panel" 2018 - DAY 3 (CYPRUS)



    It has quite everything to certify this as a summer hit. Infectious beats? Check. Memorable chorus? Check. Delivering drop? Check, perhaps. Something on the road you could be singing all summer long. Aye aye aye, fue-go! However, I gotta worry about all the rumours that Eleni is a flop vocalist live... but eh, it's Eleni, and the Eurovision fandom who get around all those online music contests will instantly recognize her name and expect something upbeat enough they can dance their asses off to - and since they will get it, they will upvote her massively as well, abiding the live impossibilities... if that didn't ruin Demy's qualification, jury won't either. Also my fave part of the video is when she said "Fuego" in the first chorus when the camera was slowly panning to the right and she felt like a human statue that forgot to stay quiet. As well as the random Perfectil product placement. Never thought it's still a popular product nowadays.

    7/10
