A few familiar names are on the list: Sandra Nurmsalu was the lead singer and violinist for the band Urban Symphony, whose song “Rändajad” took 6th in Eurovision 2009, and Lauri Pihlap is half of the group 2XL who, along with Tanel Padar and Dave Benton, took home the Eurovision trophy in 2001.

A few of the songs on the list are already available for listening online. Super Hot Cosmos Blues Band’s “Maybe Maybe” is an eclectic mix of blues, indie sounds and catchy lyrics, while NimmerSchmidt’s “Sandra” has a decidedly 90s feel. Lenna’s Supernova combines solid yet heartfelt vocals with alternative rock, and a teaser for Lauri Pihlap’s “Lootus” showcases the song’s more urban sound.

Which of the songs so far do you think has the best chance of winning Eurovision for Estonia? Are you missing the crazy antics of Winny Puhh, or perhaps can’t wait for a teaser of Sandra Nurmsalu’s song? Let us know in the Estonia 2014 forums.
