Eesti Laul receives record number of entries!
ERR, the Estonian national broadcaster, has revealed that they have received a record number of 219 entries for the Eesti Laul national selection process!
The producer of Eesti Laul, Heidy Purga, disclosed that there was a lot of dialogue between various artists and the show’s production team. “We have been on a tidal wave for years now. I don’t remember there having been so much direct communication with different artists before the deadline; all from inquiries about the appropriate title for their entries to questions regarding the rules. We can say that Eesti Laul is a unique event, which artists set their sights on.”
The top 20 songs will be selected internally and unveiled on the Ringvaade show on Thursday, December 4 at 18:00 CET. From there, the first semi-final will be held on February 7 with the second semi-final and the final being held on February 14 and 21, respectively.
Tanja represented Estonia in Eurovision 2014 with the song “Amazing,” but failed to qualify for the Grand Final.
