Eurovision Insight Podcast: Ultimate Juke Box Jury Heat 1 Written by on December 3, 2010

What can be done to keep the idle ears and opinions of the Juke Box Jury judges amused before March and the submission of all the songs for the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest? How about a simple question?

What is the greatest Eurovision Song Contest winner of all time?

It’s a question that fans continue to try and answer, and everyone has their own thoughts on this. Do our judges agree? Probably not, but it’s going to be fun to find out who goes through each heat, and who falls.

So for the next 16 weeks ESC Insight will be presenting 16 heats of Ultimate Juke Box Jury. Four songs in each show, presented to myself and two other guest judges. We’ll rate them as a Hit, Miss or Maybe, and one song will go forward to the semi-finals in June.

It’s going to be a long road, and we’re going to break some hearts along the way, but there’s no time like now to get stared.
