The second semi-final of Eesti Laul 2015 will take place on 14 February. Ten more songs will compete for the final five spots in the final with the outcome to be decided by the combination of votes from a jury and televoting. Will fan favourites Elina Born & Stig Rästa live up to the hype?

This is maybe one of the worst years of Eesti Laul.
Last year, Estonia had so many great songs!
But 2015… :/

Liis Lemsalu should advance to the final (like 2013). Hold On was one of the best yesterday.

For me song Goodbye to yesterday is so overrated with Eurovision fan from all over the worlds. Song is good but not winning material or TOP 3 . We know that Estonia want maybe to be The Neterlands 2014 in Eurovision 2015.

I just love one song and it’s “goodbye to yesterday”, I hope that the estonians will choose right, because this song can win the contest .

Definitely some surprises, like Blurry Lane, suspecting teenager votes but great to see newcomers getting through. Keep in mind how small country Estonia is, every vote counts so surprises are bound to happen. Happy for the elephants, the foofighterish sound is definitely world class and Estonia will be too small for them soon enough. Elisa is my guilty pleasure, you know, when washing dishes and you just want to sing along to a disney princess. It’s like a candy thats tasty but too sweet and sticks to your teeth. Üle vesihalli taeva definitely triggered some pleasant emotions in estonians since… Read more »

So happy Unriddle Me is through gutted about Paev Korraga though, great song. Absoutely despise Superlove, but hey, I’m pretty sure Goodbye To Yesterday will be what’s in Vienna. Cant wait 😀

I’m really surprised by the qualifiers but eh this is Estonia expect the unexpected from the country that didn’t even let Sandra Nurmsalu into the superfinal. There’s not many songs in Eesti Laul that I dislike this year so I can’t necessarily be mad with the qualifiers, but I am really disappointed my favourite Miina didn’t make it.

Overall good choices. Superlove must be the catchiest out of the bunch. My personal favorite of the evening would be Unriddle Me. It’s quirky and unusual, so I like it.
