From today, over the next 60 days, Ida Andia of Romania and Roy van der Merwe of South Africa will look at the 41 entries in the 2019 Eurovision song contest and mention one good point and one bad point of each entry.

We start off with Albania.

Ida – good point : I liked the colours on stage – red and black, like the Albanian flag.
Bad point : I did not like her dress too much.

Roy – good point : I like the fact that their entry is in their own language.
Bad point : Difficult to follow the message of the song in Albanian – would have liked maybe a portion in English.
