Elina Born & Stig Rästa remain one of the favourites to win in Vienna after their first rehearsal this morning. If any of y’all had forgotten about them, this Estonian duo managed to impress once again with “Goodbye to Yesterday”. Whilst some of us were killing the replay button on YouTube, our William caught up with Elina & Stig backstage.

The Estonian duo told us that they had a good reason to be absent from the promotional events of the previous weeks: they were recording Elina’s album! The self-titled Elina Born is going to be released in a few days, but we were left wanting it now after their great rehearsal.

Elina and Stig also shared their thoughts on their fantastic music video, particularly as it was their first time shooting a professional video – y’all, we would never have thought that!

Will the bookies put Estonia back on top after their rehearsal or will you put them top of your personal lists? Tell us below or on our Twitter and Facebook!

Estonian remains my favorite entry.
None of that over-bearing, trying-too-hard bull**** that we see 98% of the time in Eurovision. Well crafted, catchy melody and simple non-pretentious lyrics.
The vibe sorta reminds of the last year’s Dutch entry (which SHOULD have fun).
Stig has a good and original voice, interesting look, I like his eyes… and his attitude!
I haven’t been to Tallinn yet, so maybe I could visit it in 2016 😉

”Goodbye to Yesterday, hello to a victory” Smooth William, smooth.

But they still have entry for top 10 (in contrast to Italy and Greece which are increasingly hopeless).
Here is my new prediction for final of ESC 2015:
1. Poland 230
2. Sweden 205
3. Russia 186
4. Norway 171
5. Azerbaijan 158
6. Denmark 145
7. Spain 133
8. Australia 121
9. Estonia 109
10. Albania 97
Italy and Greece outside top 10.

Okay, they smiled here. But I love their reluctant attitude.

They are no longer favorites. They were favorites, but yesterday’s rehearsal showed, that they have no idea about polishing of staging.
