It’s back! The (in)famous ESC United “Expert” Panel is returning once again! While we don’t claim to be professionally qualified to judge anything, we certainly have strong opinions, so our staff and editors got together to review all 41 of the songs taking part in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 which will take place in Tel Aviv, Israel this May.  Which song are we going to pick as our overall favorite, and will #YOU agree with us or decide on a different winner?

Joci Pápai is returning to the contest. The singer previously represented Hungary at Eurovision in 2017, when he was able to finish in an impressive 8th place. He once again won the Hungarian show A Dal, this time with the song Az én apám. Can he once again take his country to the Grand Final and score another left side of the scoreboard outcome? You can watch the Preview Video HERE

Watch our video to get our detailed thoughts and scores and don’t forget to vote in the poll. What score do you give to the Hungarian entry? Will the reader’s results differ greatly from ours? We’ll find out soon enough. You can find the team’s individual score in the video description box.

    I like it. It’s a good ballad in the original language. But I prefer the entry Hungary presented two years ago. 7poi ts
