Twenty acts will compete at Eesti Laul 2018, the Estonian national selection for Eurovision 2018, but only one can grab the golden ticket to Lisbon. 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 15 jurors who come from Australia, Bulgaria, Germany, Hungary, Iceland Lithuania, New Zealand, Serbia, Spain and the United Kingdom. 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.
