The Wiwi Jury is heading to Sweden to review and rate the 12 finalists competing in Melodifestivalen 2018, as well as the eight songs who’ll be battling it out for one of four spots in the final via the andra chansen round. With Sweden eyeing up the record of seven Eurovision wins, the pressure is on to pick the perfect song for Lisbon.

The jury hails from Australia, Bulgaria, Israel, New Zealand, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

Each juror assesses each song independently, and awards each song a score from 0 to 10. Before calculating the Wiwi Jury verdict, we drop the highest and lowest scores to reduce potential bias and outliers.

We’ll be unrolling these one by one over the coming weeks. You can read the completed reviews by clicking on the song title.
