Estonia: Who should win the final of Eesti Laul 2018?


The number of acts has been halved. The favourites have firmed up their position. And on March 4 ten acts will take to the stage for the final of Estonia’s national selection, Eesti Laul 2018, hoping to represent the Baltic nation in Lisbon during the Eurovision Song Contest 2018.

In Tallinn the pyros will flare, emotions will run high and by the end of the night Koit and Laura’s heir will been named. Now we want to know who you think should win the final of Eesti Laul 2018.

Perhaps you want to see Elina Nechayeva’s operatic efforts rewarded? Or maybe you still hold out hope for Eurovision 2015 act Stig Rästa? Or it could be you’ve your eye on newcomer Nika?

Whoever you’re rooting for, we want to hear about it, so let your voice be heard in the poll. You can watch all the performances from the semi-finals below, but beware, you can only vote once so make it count! We’ll reveal the result ahead of the final this Saturday.

Last year, Koit Toome & Laura overcame performing second in the running order to win the entire competition and placing 6th with the international jury in the final. Unfortunately they couldn’t overcome the odds in Kyiv, where the duo became the second Estonian act in a row to fail to qualify and miss out on a place at the Grand Final. ERR will be keen to avoid a third year in the Eurovision wilderness.
