  1. EUROVISION 2020 - General Discussion Thread

    The winner wouldn't get to host next year tho'. :confused: It's one thing to wonder what might have been, but a whole other matter to know you won but get jack shit to show for it. :LOL: A pat on the back and a mention next year maybe, but the whole point of winning, putting on your own show, is...
  2. Eurovision 2020 Online - The Jury

    Forum nickname: laululind Country: Estonia Would you like to be a Head of Jury? Nope. :LOL:
  3. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    It'll really come down to his competition I guess. :unsure: If it's a weak/level playing field like last few years, he's probably got this in the bag. :LOL: If we have something outstanding on offer tho', it's possible his support votes won't be enough. If he ends up being second again next...
  4. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    It's not as if he needs to worry about not passing the semi, as long as his song is at least somewhat decent. :LOL: The pity/support votes will ensure that in spades. Might not be enough to win if he has a weak song or strong competition, but I'd be really surprised if he wasn't top 5 based on...
  5. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    I guess that's a decent compromise. :giggle: As long as his song is half-decent & there are no big stand-outs like GTY taking part, his winning odds will be good. :unsure: If people felt sorry for him this year, the sentiment will be even stronger next time. :LOL: Hopefully he will bring his...
  6. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    The only 'fair' option then would be cancelling EL 2021 or having a Uku-only edition. :unsure: Having EL 2021 still take place but the winner having to sit out so Uku could go would in turn be unfair to them. Besides, that could lead to some tragic results. :LOL: Imagine our next EL edition...
  7. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    I guess if you take the "Eesti Laul is it's own thing and going to Eurovision is just a side-bonus" approach that EL was originally conceived with, it makes sense not to cancel or completely re-do the 'main show' just because the side-bonus got cancelled. :unsure: These days EL has moved much...
  8. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    Wow, Uku really is unlucky. :unsure: All the different ways he listed that he's managed to lose, and now that he finally wins.. everything goes to hell in a handbasket. I was wondering what they'd do with EL if this happened, but guess we didn't need to wait long to find out. :LOL: Making an...
  9. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    Second year in a row where our entry & the Finnish one are kind of.. in tune. :unsure: Last time we both had a middling Avicii track and this time it's a dated ballad most people dislike that beat a hot favourite in the NF. :LOL: Neighbourly camaraderie. :giggle:
  10. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    We'll have a better idea about his qualification chances once we have all the songs. He's certainly not hopeless, but hardly a guaranteed qualifier either. If he really does flop... all those people voting for Uku because he deserved a consolation prize or they felt sorry for him really should...
  11. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    :unsure: Would our televoters ever pick Tommy to represent us? I feel he'd be way too weird and freaky for the older & conservative voters, who seem to be a large part of the audience. Would be cool to see him take part regardless, but I wouldn't hold out much hope about his winning chances if...
  12. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    I'd say Kerli still had the bigger flop. :unsure: Simply because she's a 'celebrity', one of our biggest music names, whereas Jaagup is a total newcomer. Considering the type of song he had & his lack of previous fame, he did about as well as he could have I guess.
  13. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    Little Mess and Mariliis Jõgeva might have been engaged in some suspicious voting practices. :LOL: But they made a tactical error and blew their money on round 1, should have saved it for the second one. There's no reasonable explanation as to how their support suddenly just vanished in round 2...
  14. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    I wouldn't mind three semis, simply so we got to hear more songs. It's the only way we ever get to hear any after all. :LOL: Let's have 10 semis and we've almost solved the question of "were there really no better songs?" :sneaky: Anyway, I don't trust the juries to actually pick the 10 best...
  15. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    But Rändajad lost in round 1 to Laura. :unsure: Still might have won against her in the superfinal, but it's possible we wouldn't have sent Rändajad if juries hadn't taken Laura out that year. :LOL: One of those things we'll never know. Like last year, our saving grace might be being in the...
  16. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    Well.. guess we won't have to worry about copycat accusations. It'll just be another year of everyone shitting on our entry. :LOL: Like last year! Tho' looking at current scores/reactions, Victor was a downright fan-favourite compared to Uku. :poop: I'm a little disappointed at how predictable...
  17. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    Why even have that rule? It's stupid & limiting. :cautious: But if they have no real intention to stick to it, why on earth write it down? They're just setting themselves up for potential problems later. I can already imagine the Delfi headlines. :LOL: "Eesti Laul rules being broken! Scandal...
  18. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    But Synne took part last year too, and was dead last with the juries with only 4 points. :unsure: I don't recall her vocals or stage presence being miles worse a year ago, so I can only conclude the juries didn't much like her song. :LOL: Which is what I suspect might happen this year too...
  19. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    I'm mostly going by local feedback, comments, social media reactions & polls. They have shown to be pretty accurate in the past and Uku seems to be the most popular this time around. :unsure: There's also our previous voting history. This feels very 2017 to me.. a cheesy pop song vs. something...
  20. Estonia ESTONIA 2020 - Uku Suviste - What Love Is

    I fear the oldies will go straight for Uku. :LOL: Jaagup seems more like something younger people would prefer, whereas older folks with traditional taste will prefer the more easily digestible typical Eurovision cheese. Synne reaching the superfinal would require her to score alright with...
