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?

John Lundvik is representing Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 with his song “Too Late For Love”. He won Melodifestivalen, one of the most famous shows in the Eurovision world and gets to fly the Swedish flag in Tel Aviv, Israel. He previously took part in Melfest the previous year where he finished third overall with his song “My Turn”. Should have been it his turn this year? Our team is reviewing the song, giving it their score. 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 Swedish 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.
