Estonia wants revenge and with a record 219 submissions for Eesti Laul 2015 they might just get it.
Less than 10% of those songs will make the final cut of 20 given the chance to represent Tallin at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Vienna but it’s still an impressive hall for one of Eurovision’s smaller nations.
ERR – the Estonian broadcaster – will be internally cutting the number down before the chosen acts are put before public scrutiny in the national selection.
The format for 2015 will be the same as used since 2011 with two semi-finals and 5 acts advancing from each to a grand-final.
Tanja won in 2014 with her song ‘Amazing’ but failed to advance to the Grand Final in Copenhagen by a margin of only 4 points finishing narrowly behind Portugal’s Suzy and San Marino’s Valentina Monetta.
That was Estonia’s first non-qualification since 2010.
We are super optimistic about Estonia’s chances in 2015 though y’all. Eesti Laul has delivered results previously and Estonia did make the Top 6 in 2009 and 2012.
So maybe they’re due a strong result next year – what do y’all think? Is it just a bigger quantity at the expense of quality or will it mean a lot of stronger songs? Sound off below!
