Good evening, Eurovision fans! Do you have whiplash from switching between Estonia, Norway and Belgium’s national finals yet? In case you missed anything, here’s a recap of Eesti Laul Semi-Final 2.

Tonight’s running order included the following entries:

  • Inger – “Awaiting You”
  • Linalakk & Bonzo – “Aeg”
  • Meelik- “Tuju”
  • Elysa – “Bad Philosophy”
  • Robin Juhkental – “Kurbuse matused”
  • m els – “So Good At What You Do”
  • Wiiralt – “Salalik”
  • Sissi – “Lighthouse”
  • Carlos Ukareda – “Whiskey Won’t Forget”
  • Alika – “Bridges”

Semi-Final 2 Qualifiers:

  1. Sissi — “Lighthouse”
  2. Inger — “Awaiting You”
  3. Alika — “Bridges”
  4. Meelik — “Tuju”
  5. m els — “So Good At What You Do”

How the results worked: The first round of qualifiers would be decided by both a professional jury as well as the public vote, while in the second round, only the public would be able to decide. A total of 5 songs could qualify to the final, eliminating half of the competing field. Sissi, Inger, Alika and Meelik were announced as the first-round qualifiers, while m els claimed the fifth qualifying spot in Round 2.

Another exciting highlight: Before the results, Eesti Laul alumna Kerli returned to the stage for a stunning interval performance in which she revealed her new single, “21st Century Kids,” a collaboration with Estonian-American conductor and composer Kristjan Järvi. We haven’t heard much new material from the elven priestess since her 2019 album Shadow Works, but there’s good news for the moonchildren: she’ll be releasing the new single later this month!

Earlier this week during semi-final 1, Estonia chose its first five Eesti Laul finalists: Ollie, Andreas, Anett x Fredi, Bedwetters and Janek advanced from semi-1 to the final, which will take place on Feb. 11, 2023.
