Estonia kicked off their search for Rotterdam in style this evening, with the first twelve acts of this year’s Eesti Laul taking part in the first semi-final live from Tallinn.

The show, of course, went ahead without the usual audience and atmosphere, however there was still opportunity for a vibrant atmosphere in the green room among the competing acts and delegations.

The running order for tonight’s show was as follows;

  1. Tanja – Best Night Ever
  2. Hans Nayna – One By One
  3. WIIRALT – Tuuled
  4. Kéa – Hypnotized
  5. Andrei Zevakin & Pluuto – Wingman
  6. Karl Killing – Kiss Me
  7. Nika Marula – Calm Down
  8. Egert Milder – Free Again
  9. Tuuli Rand – Üks öö
  10. Koit Toome – We Could Have Been Beautiful
  11. Kristin Kalnapenk – Find a Way
  12. Ivo Linna, Robert Linna & Supernova – Ma Olen Siin

The show saw multiple familiar faces to Eurovision and Eesti Laul fans alike, in a glitzy and well-produced show hosted by Grete Kuld and Tõnis Niinemets.

The result was decided by a mixture of votes, with four qualifiers chosen by a 50/50 split of jury and televoting, and the final two qualifiers in this evening’s semi-final selected by the public alone.

As the semi-final drew to a close following a performance from Estonian rapper Beebilõust and former Estonian representative Elina Born, it became clear which six songs would make it to the Eesti Laul final on March 6th. They are;

  • Karl Killing
  • Egert Milder
  • Ivo Linna, Robert Linna & Supernova
  • Koit Toome
  • Hans Nayna
  • Andrei Zevakin & Pluuto

The second semi-final of this year’s Eesti Laul will take place on Saturday 20th February, as another twelve acts vie for the last six tickets to the final.
