They’re the Estonian duo who beat ESC2015 veteran Elina Born and international Estonian popstar Kerli to win Eesti Laul 2017 in March. And despite being a notable absence on the preview party circuit Koit Toome & Laura have been hard at work preparing themselves and their Shakespeare-infused song “Verona” to take the stage in Kyiv. Their latest step? Shooting their postcard, the short clip that plays before every Eurovision act performs on stage.
The eye-catching Estonians chose Lahemaa National Park on the Gulf of Finland for their backdrop. Through her Instagram page, Laura shared snaps of herself getting down and dirty, all in the name of getting the perfect shot. With voting in Eurovision’s Next Top Model 2017 underway, that’s the kind of attitude we at wiwibloggs heartily endorse.
According to the captions, it was an early call time for the shoot, and putting in those long days and hours will be great preparation for Kyiv. Eurovision is an endurance game, y’all!
Having wandered the woods, they headed indoors to shoot at Noa Restaurant, a glamorous seafood restaurant in the Estonian capital Tallinn.
After serving fierce fur in the wild woods, Laura showed her fashion-forward side rocking a fabulous frock.
She was joined in the restaurant snaps by duet partner Koit, who dropped the leather jacket from the music video in favour of a smart blazer and chinos look, giving us debonair daddy for days vibes.
KOIT TOOME & LAURA’S ROAD TO EUROVISION
The pair may have been quiet for the past few weeks, but things are about to heat up.
With just four weeks to go until Eurovision fortnight, Estonian broadcaster ERR will be shepherding them through final rehearsals and ensuring the stage show is as strong as possible for May.
After Jüri Pootsman unfortunately crashed out at last year’s semi-final, there are high hopes that Koit & Laura can turn the ship around for Tallinn and put Estonia back in the Grand Final. Only time will tell.
