Once again, our “Expert” Panel is back for another year, as 15 members of the ESC United team have sat down to review the hopefuls that were set to represent their nations at Eurovision 2020 in Rotterdam!

As a quick reminder, the rules of our “Expert” Panel are simple; our team provide a score for each entry between 1 and 10, with .5 scores also possible – 1 being terrible and 10 being a perfect score and an amazing entry. Each entry will also have a video, where Matt will discuss the entry with three members of the panel and provide their rationales for their points for the song.

Time to see which song is next in our assessments…

The eighth country facing our panel is Australia, who once again selected their entry through the national selection Eurovision: Australia Decides. In the end, it was indie-pop songstress Montaigne who reigned supreme with “Don’t Break Me”, but what did our panel make of the mid-tempo song?

#YOU can see below how Matt, Roy, Melanie and Connor reacted to the Australian entry;

With four of our team passing judgement above, it’s now time to see how the scores fell for Netherlands across our panel;

  • Boris 5
  • Connor 10
  • David 3
  • Fernando 6
  • Gabe 6
  • Holly 8
  • James 4
  • Matt 4
  • Melanie 7
  • Robert 6
  • Roy 4.5
  • Sanio 5
  • Sean 4.5
  • Sebastian 6
  • Stefan 6

We also asked our forum readers and members to share their votes on the song, with the Forum score being attributed as 5.96 for Australia’s effort for 2020!

But what does this mean for our ranking? Australia received an average of 5.69 – sadly not enough to trouble the top of the scoreboard.

  1. 🇲🇹 Malta – 7.76
  2. 🇳🇱 Netherlands – 7.15
  3. 🇨🇾 Cyprus – 6.82
  4. 🇦🇱 Albania – 6.42
  5. 🇬🇷 Greece – 6.40
  6. 🇸🇮 Slovenia – 6.01
  7. 🇱🇻 Latvia – 5.80
  8. 🇦🇺 Australia – 5.69

Malta continue to hold on to top spot, but for how long? Next up, we look at Efendi’s “Cleopatra” for Azerbaijan – so make sure to subscribe and add notifications for our YouTube channel to not miss a thing!
