Forty acts will compete at the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, but there can only be one winner. To help you make an informed decision about where to cast your vote, the Wiwi Jury—our in-house panel of music un-professionals—has previewed and reviewed each of this year’s acts. It’s hard work being honest, but somebody has to do it.

Our jury consists of 29 jurors who hail from Albania, Austria, Australia, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Finland, Georgia, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, Russia, Spain, the UK and the US. We are truly international, y’all! Each juror assesses each song independently, and then awards each song a score from 0 to 10. The highest and lowest scores are then dropped to determine the Wiwi Jury average.

You can read the completed reviews by clicking on the COUNTRY name. The artist name will take you to an interview or further coverage, while the song title will take you to the lyrics.

What is the point of this Eurovision in the last 15 years?
It became political. Balcan countries are sharing top points between themselves, as well as Scandinavia, and almost can say for the other territories.

The original idea of Eurovision was for each contry in the Europe, to represent its culture, language and nation. Unfortunately all those three things are gone!
90% of them are singing on english! No body cares about the music/song quality! Very sad! If you look more crazy, or If you’re gay or tranvestit…there is much more chance to win.

Interesting to see the Wiw Jury votes ranked. It must be embarrassing to have the light weight fluff from Sweden so high. You would hope the Wiwi Jury would demand more than plastic pop.

I agree with most of the list, except that I think Sweden is overrated big time and Latvia should really be higher. Anyway, let’s hope for a nice and memorable Eurovision week. *Confetti*

I like most of this years entries, but I’m waiting for live performances inside the contest to decide my personal winner. However, there are 2 songs that I just couldn’t listen till the end: Finland and Iceland. Today I made an effort and listen live performance for Unbroken. Sorry, I don’t want to be rude, but I hear better vocals when I go to karaoke. I honestly do! Maybe the Wiwi Jury voted considering studio version of this song, but in Eurovision playback is not allowed…

I find Iceland too overrated, and Greece way underrated. I mean Iceland´s entry is ok, but no way can it stand in a scale from 0 to 10, 2.5 points above Greece, or even 2 above Ireland, Serbia or France. Just no. In my opinion of course! =)

@Martin, these are not predicitons. These are verdicts based on judges personal tastes. And Greece is not good this year. But it will qualify, cause it’s Greece, they could send absolute and utter sh*t and still go through.

Seriously? You ranked Greece below Serbia, Romania, Switzerland, Czech Republic and Montenegro? Wow, these predictions are pretty bad.

It’s not amazing, but should be just above Lithuania.

I really hope the jury steps up and kicks Lithuania, the Netherlands and Israel out of the top ten and give good songs a space.
