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 next song in our running is one of the favourites to win the competition, and a viral sensation – it’s none other than Iceland’s Daði og Gagnamagnið with “Think About Things”! But were our panelists swept away by the track, or is there another way of thinking about things with this track?

#YOU can see below how Matt, Holly, Melanie and Robert reacted to the Icelandic entry;

With four of our team passing judgement above, it’s now time to see how the individual scores ended up for Iceland;

  • Boris 10
  • Connor 8
  • David 6
  • Fernando 10
  • Gabe 10
  • Holly 10
  • James 7.5
  • Matt 8.5
  • Melanie 9.5
  • Robert 7.5
  • Roy 9
  • Sanio 6.5
  • Sean 9
  • Sebastian 10
  • Stefan 8

We also asked our forum readers and members to share their votes on the song, with the Forum score being attributed as 7.58 for Iceland!

But what does this mean for our ranking? In the end, Iceland earned an average of 8.63 across our jury, meaning we have a new leader!

  1. Iceland – 8.63
  2. 🇲🇹 Malta – 7.76
  3. 🇳🇱 Netherlands – 7.15
