She’s the Estonian star who has featured in the country’s Eurovision selection four times — making the Eesti Laul final on two occasions.

And earlier tonight Liis Lemsalu reminded us that she’s a song contest fantatic when she impersonated 2018 runner-up Eleni Foureira on Su nägu kõlab tuttavalt — the Estonian version of “Your Face Sounds Familiar”.

Liis — whose delicate voice has won her countless fans at home and abroad — took a dive into the Mediterranean by tackling one of the most talked-about songs of the year.

Visually she already had Eleni’s endlessly lithe legs and washboard stomach.

But she upped her visual likeness by slipping into a pair of skin-tight sequinned trousers that mimicked fire with their gold and red hues.

Literally on point in a pair of sky-high heels, she paired her trousers with a sequinned top that exposed her midriff and topped off the look with Eleni’s signature black demi-jacket.

And while her brunette tresses matched Eleni for their length, Liis could have gone for a stronger crimper. Her hair didn’t really match Eleni for texture. What’s a glamourpuss to do?!

In any event, the choreography was generally passable.

She really nailed the booty touches and the various segments where she had to throw her hair to the floor and back it up.

As an added bonus her background screen featured Eleni’s notoriously hard-to-nail flames. Thankfully for Liis her flames were rather large — we’re talking mega-kerosene, extra-large font flame emojis — so it would have been difficult to miss!

Marta Laan tackles Netta’s “Toy”

Liis’ performance comes just a week after  Estonian stage, television and film actress Marta Laan did her best to conjure up Netta Barzilai with “Toy”. From the Japanese kimono top to the Princess Leia hair buns, her attention to detail was impeccable.

What do you think of these two impersonations? Who would you assign douze points? And who would you send home? Let us know down below!

I think Polish version of Your Face Sounds Familiar is the most professional one. I noticed that they not only pay attention to appearance when they impresonate but also try to imitate vocals. Very often it’s tough to find the difference between the original and the copy whereas when I watch YFSF in other countries I have a feeling like it was a parody. What is interesting, Polish version is given as a rolemodel to follow to the producers in other countries even though the show has its roots in other country. People connected with Eurovision took part in it… Read more »

Also from ESC connected stuff: in one of the seasons there was a guy who is a singer performing in a disco polo band (one of the very few ones in disco polo who can sing live, and does it pretty well…has good songs, could be also a nice option for ESC if it REALLY has to be disco polo for Poland), he didn’t win the show (he was just a few points away from reaching top4 in his season 🙁 thus he didn’t qualify for the final), sometimes jury gave him too low points for his (really good) performances…… Read more »

She sounds much better than Mimi vocally but I still like Mimi better.
