Our “Expert” Panel continues for another year, with 15 members of the ESC United team having 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 up…

The ninth country in this year’s “Expert” Panel is Azerbaijan, who brought us an Egyptian electro-stomper in 2020 with Efendi’s “Cleopatra” – but what did our team think of the intriguing entry?

#YOU can see below how Matt, Sean, James and Connor reacted to the Azerbaijani entry;

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

  • Boris 9
  • Connor 7
  • David 5.5
  • Fernando 10
  • Gabe 8
  • Holly 6.5
  • James 8.5
  • Matt 8.5
  • Melanie 7
  • Robert 3

We also asked our forum readers and members to share their votes on the song, with the Forum score being attributed as 8.55 for Azerbaijan!

But what does this mean for our ranking?  Well, Azerbaijan earned an average of 7.10 across our jury, putting them just shy of second in our current rankings…
