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?

Leonora is going to represent Denmark at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel with her song “Love is Forever”. After winning Dansk Melodi Grand Prix in a nailbiting outcome, the young singer is now going to fly her country’s flag at the contest. Do we have Love in our hearts for this song? 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 Danish 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.
