Estonia’s national broadcaster ERR has confirmed the first names that will enter the Baltic nation’s qualifying rounds for the Eurovision Song Contest, Eesti Laul.
Ten acts have been revealed by the channel responsible for Estonia’s participation in the contest, with the acts set to take part in one of the semi-finals in February.
The first semi-finalists, and their song titles, are;
- Jaagup Tuisk – “Beautiful Lie”
- Laura – “Break Me”
- STEFAN – “By My Side”
- Ziggy Wild – “Lean On Me”
- Kruuv – “Leelo”
- SHIRA – “Out In Space”
- Mariliis Jõgeva – “Unistustes”
- Renate – “Videomäng”
- Uku Suviste – “What Love Is”
- Little Mess – “Without a Reason”
- Traffic – “Üks kord veel”
- Rasmus Rändvee – “Young”
The other twelve semi-finalists will be revealed tomorrow, with a press conference for the acts to be held on Friday 15th November at 12:00 local time (11:00 CET).
For those who are familiar with Eesti Laul, a lot of the names in this list will be very familiar; both losing superfinalists from 2019 return in STEFAN and Uku Suviste, with Traffic and Rasmus Rändvee also returning to the competition.
There is also an entry from Laura, who most recently represented Estonia in Kyiv in 2017 alongside Koit Toome, performing “Verona” but failing to make the Eurovision final. She was also part of the group Suntribe who represented Estonia in 2005, and has made numerous solo attempts in Eesti Laul.
The 24 songs in this year’s Eesti Laul will be revealed for the first time in a special programme on November 30th.
