Twenty acts will compete at Eesti Laul, the Estonian national selection for Eurovision 2017, but only one can grab the golden ticket to Kyiv. To help you make an informed decision on who to pay attention to, the Wiwi Jury – our in-house panel of music unprofessionals – will preview and review each of this year’s acts. We’re ready to pick our favourite for Estonia!

Our jury for this edition consists of 20 jurors who come from Australia, the Czech Republic, Finland, Iceland, Malta, Morocco, New Zealand, Portugal, Russia, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Each juror assesses each song independently, and awards each song a score from 0 to 10. Before calculating the Wiwi Jury verdict, we drop the highest and lowest scores to reduce potential bias and outliers.

We’ll be unrolling these one by one over the coming weeks. You can read the completed reviews by clicking on the song title.

This is one of the very few times my winner of a selection gets the highest score from the Wiwi Jury.

Well, the head placement of the rank is now officially laughable 😉

There’s no room for video game songs like “Feel Me Now” in Eurovision…

I loved Ariadne song more in this version /watch?v=07ndgXxxGRw
Arrangement is what waterdowns her song too much, afm. Could be more edgy.

Slingshot could’ve been ranked higher. A bit pity but considering hype about another songs, doesn’t make sense.

Come on, Ariadne is by far the best to date.
