The Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music unprofessionals — is heading to Sweden to review and rate the 12 acts competing in the grand final Melodifestivalen 2019, as well as the eight songs that will 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 Tel Aviv.
The jury hails from Australia, Bulgaria, Germany, Israel, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, the United Kingdom and Sweden.
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 weeks. You can read the completed reviews by clicking on the song title.
