Song submissions for Eesti Laul 2015, Estonia’s national final, only ended on Monday. But Estonian broadcaster ERR wasted no time on their judging process. A record breaking 219 entries were submitted in total, making it a whopping 1,128 entries since Eesti Laul first started 7 years ago! A panel of expert juries had the tricky task of cutting the submissions down to 20. Just as it did last year, the broadcaster has revealed the 20 lucky artists on Estonian TV show Ringvaade. We can already tell it’s going to be a colourful year. The songs include “Idiot” and the bands include “Elephants from Neptune.” Here’s the complete list.
