Twenty-four acts will compete at Eesti Laul 2019, the Estonian national selection for Eurovision 2019, but only one can grab the golden ticket to Tel Aviv. 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 18 jurors who come from Australia, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Lithuania, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, the United Kingdom and Venezuela. 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.

Estonia has strong top 5 in Sandra, Stefan, Victor, Grete and Inger, with the possible uprise of Kaia Tamm and her funny cats, Uku Suviste and Jennifer Cohen.
