Manchester calling! On February 8, the UK will decide who will be their 2019 representative in Eurovision: You Decide 2019. Six acts will perform their own version of one of three songs. After the first round — in which the jury will decide which of the two versions of each song is best — the public televote will decide which of the remaining three entries will be the UK’s song for Tel Aviv.
To give you an idea of who to look our for, we’ve brought in the Wiwi Jury – our in-house panel of music unprofessionals. We’ll preview and review each of this year’s acts to help you inform your decision. We’re ready to pick our favourite for the UK!
Our jury for this edition consists of 12 jurors who come from Australia, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, New Zealand, Spain, the United Kingdom and Venezuela. Each juror assesses each song independently, and awards each song a score from 1 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 week. You can read the completed reviews by clicking on the song title.
