Tonight, Estonia will begin their search for their Eurovision 2021 song as Eesti Laul gets underway once again from 18:30 CET, from the Saku Suurhall in Tallinn. Twelve songs will take part in tonight’s first semi-final, but only six of these songs can qualify for the final on March 6th.
Four songs will be decided in a 50/50 split between public voting and a professional jury, with two more qualifiers decided by televote only. Tonight’s show will be hosted by Grete Kuld and Tõnis Niinemets, with the following acts taking part;
- Tanja – Best Night Ever
- Hans Nayna – One By One
- WIIRALT – Tuuled
- Kéa – Hypnotized
- Andrei Zevakin & Pluuto – Wingman
- Karl Killing – Kiss Me
- Nika Marula – Calm Down
- Egert Milder – Free Again
- Tuuli Rand – Üks öö
- Koit Toome – We Could Have Been Beautiful
- Kristin Kalnapenk – Find a Way
- Ivo Linna, Robert Linna & Supernova – Ma Olen Siin
There are of course some familiar names in the line-up for seasoned fans of Eesti Laul, most notably Tanja (Estonia 2014), Koit Toome (Estonia 1998 and 2017) and Ivo Linna (Estonia 1996) who make welcome returns to the contest. There are also returns to Eesti Laul from Kéa, Andrei Zevakin, Karl Killing, Egert Milder and Tuuli Rand, all hoping to make their first visit to the Eurovision Song Contest in May!
