It’s back! The (in)famous ESC United “Expert” Panel is returning once again! While we don’t claim to be professionally qualified to judge anything, we certainly have strong opinions, so our staff and editors got together to review all 41 of the songs taking part in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 which will take place in Tel Aviv, Israel this May.  Which song are we going to pick as our overall favorite, and will #YOU agree with us or decide on a different winner?

Tamta is representing Cyprus at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel with the song “Replay”. She was chosen internally by the broadcaster which has been the preferred option for the fourth year in a row. Tamta has been a fan favorite and was rumored to represent either Greece or Cyprus for years now and it has finally happened. Was it worth the wait, that’s what we are trying to determine.  This is the ESC United “Expert” Jury.

Watch our video to get our detailed thoughts and scores and don’t forget to vote in the poll. What score do you give to the Cypriotic entry? Will the reader’s results differ greatly from ours? We’ll find out soon enough. You can find the team’s individual score in the video.
