Call it a Baltic blitz. This year Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania have all upped their game for Eurovision. Estonia’s Elina & Stig have been among the bookies favourites to win Eurovision since even before they won Eesti Laul. It’s widely believed that Latvia’s Aminata Savadogo is her country’s best contestant ever (it’s no wonder people from more than 70 countries voted in the Supernova selection). And Lithuania’s Monika & Vaidas have charmed the socks off of Europe, drawing rave reviews for their feel-good duet. Since the introduction of the finals in 2004 the three nations have never gone three-for-three and made the final in the same year. In 2015 they may finally right that wrong…
It all begs the question: Who is your favourite act in this Baltic revival? You can listen to each of the three acts below. Then vote in our poll. You can vote for as many acts as you would like, but you can only vote ONE time. So make it count. We’ll close this poll ahead of the first semi-final in May.
ESTONIA: Elina Born & Stig Rästa – Goodbye to Yesterday
