Wiwi Jury: Eesti Laul 2016 Reviews and Rankings

Twenty acts will compete at Eesti Laul, the Estonian national selection for Eurovision 2016, but only one can grab the golden ticket to Stockholm. To help you make an informed decision on who to pay attention to, the Wiwi Jury – our in-house panel of  music unprofessionals – will preview and review each of this year’s acts. We’re ready to pick our favourite for Estonia!

Our jury for this edition consists of 20 jurors who come from Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Greece, Iceland,  Italy, Malta, Morocco, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Spain and the United Kingdom. Each juror assesses each song independently, and awards each song a score from 0 to 10. Before calculating the Wiwi Jury verdict, we drop the highest and lowest scores to reduce potential bias and outliers.

We’ll be unrolling these one by one over the coming weeks. You can read the completed reviews by clicking on the song title.
