Estonia has selected its last five challengers for the Eurovision throne!

At tonight’s second Eesti Laul semi-final, the Estonian public and professional jury narrowed down the field one last time. In all, ten artists performed their songs, and, after all was said and done, five songs qualified for the final. The first four qualifiers were determined by a mix of jury and public voting. They were:

  • Stefan– “Hope”
  • Black Velvet– “Sandra”
  • Jaagup Tuisk– “Kui vaid”
  • Anna Sahlene, “Champion”

The last finalist was determined by a second round, with the decision 100% in the hands of the public. Ultimately, the final song chosen was … Minimal Wind feat. Elisabeth Tiffany with “What to Make of This”.

On Tuesday, Team ESC United finished our preview coverage of all twenty Eesti Laul semi-finalists, scoring each song to determine which five songs we would advance from each semi. Let’s see how we did tonight:

Our Qualifiers

Stefan– “Hope”

Jyrise– “Plaksuta”

Púr Múdd & Shira– “Golden Shores”

Minimal Wind feat. Elisabeth Tiffany– “What to Make of This”

Anna Sahlene– “Champion”

Actual Qualifiers

Stefan– “Hope”

Black Velvet– “Sandra”

Jaagup Tuisk– “Kui vaid”

Minimal Wind feat. Elisabeth Tiffany– “What to Make of This”

Anna Sahlene– “Champion”

After going 4-for-5 at Thursday’s semi-final, Team ESC United only managed to go 3-for-5 tonight, losing our qualifiers Jyrise and Púr Múdd & Shira in favor of Black Velvet and Jaagup Tuisk.

Covid was kinder to tonight’s semi than the last, with only one one act (Minimal Wind feat. Elisabeth Tiffany) missing out due to a positive test. The music video for their song, “What to Make of This”, was shown in lieu of a live performance. Luckily, qualifying tonight means there’s a good chance they can perform at the final next week.

The Eesti Laul final is scheduled for next Saturday, February 12, with the winner earning the right to represent Estonian at Eurovision in May.
