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 next country we are focusing on is Malta, whose artist needs no introduction to Eurovision fans; Destiny is already a Eurovision champion, having won JESC 2015 for her country. She is also the current title holder of The X Factor Malta, which brings her to the competition this year with “All of My Love”.
In this video, Matt discusses the Maltese entry with Roy, Melanie and Connor. #YOU can find out how they felt in the video below;
With four of our team passing judgement above, it’s now time to see how the scores fell for Malta across our panel;

We also asked our forum readers and members to share their votes on the song, with the Forum score being attributed as 7.63 for Malta’s entry.
Overall, this means that Latvia’s “Still Breathing” earns an average of score of 7.76 – which puts Malta at the top of our panel’s ranking!
- 🇲🇹 Malta – 7.76
- 🇦🇱 Albania – 6.42
