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?

Lake Malawi is going to represent Czech Republic at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel with their entry ‘Friend of a Friend’. They won the National Selection which was an online contest only with no Live Performances of the acts. Lake Malawi was victorious and now gets to fly their countries flag at our beloved contest. Are we enthusiastic about the song….or not? Let’s find out, 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 Czech 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.
