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…

Our next song is Belgium’s “Release Me”, from the legendary trip-hop group Hooverphonic. There was a great deal of hype for their selection back in late 2019, so did we feel that the track lived up to the fans’ expectations?

#YOU can see below how Matt, Sean, Gabe and Roy feel about the Belgian song below;
