When the artists for Estonia’s Eesti Laul 2020 were first revealed, many thought semi-final one of the Eurovision selection would be a bloodbath.
But after broadcaster ERR released the 24 competing songs, it became clear that semi-final two won’t be a walk in the park either. The semi includes many early contenders and dark horses, and we can’t wait to hear who you’ll root for.
Eesti Laul 2020 Semi-Final Two Songs
German & Violina – “Heart Winder”
Nothing screams Eurovision like a band of violinists. German & Violina want to pave their way to the final with a catchy pop chorus. But do they have your support?
INGER – “Only Dream”
INGER’s fun indie sound and bluesy vocalisation are great to get the listener in a good mood. The singer is returning to the contest hoping to do better than last year. So, will you be rooting for The Only Dream” artist?
Jaagup Tuisk – “Beautiful Lie”
Complimenting the title of last year’s runner up “Pretty Little Liar”, Jaagup Tuisk’s moving song is a touching ballad reminiscent of last year’s winner. Does it move you enough to get your vote?
Janet – “Hingelind”
“Hingelind” is one of the most up-tempo Estonian-language track of this year’s Eesti Laul. It builds up to a booming drop and shows Janet’s great vocal ability. Will you root for it?
Mariliis Jõgeva – “Unistustes”
Fresh-faced Mariliis Jõgeva brings this Estonian-language bop to the table. The track and the video feel very wholesome and uplifting. Is it your favourite of the semi-final?
Merilin Mälk – “Miljon Sammu”
While most of us can’t speak Estonian, the Eurovision community already marked this song as an early favourite. But, does this language barrier-breaking bop have your support?
SHIRA – “Out in Space”
SHIRA’s indie pop effort for Estonia is already receiving a lot of love from fans. Meanwhile, there’s also a SHIRA in the Israeli selection, highly tipped to win. But in Eesti Laul, is SHIRA also a favourite?
Traffic – “Üks Kord Veel”
With this fun, Mumford & Suns-like track, Traffic hope to win Eesti Laul on their fifth attempt. Though it has a convincing sound, fans find it polarising. So, is it your favourite?
Uku Suviste – “What Love Is”
When ERR announced that last year’s runner-up will participate, fans were hyped. He also came second in our “most excited for” poll. But now that his power ballad is out, is he still your fave?
Uudo Sepp – “i’m sorry. i messed up”
With true emotion and pain, Uudo Sepp’s “i’m sorry. i messed up” is truly moving. But emotion isn’t all there is to it. The track also shows Sepp’s brilliant vocals. Is this song your vote in this semi?
Viinerid – “Kapa Kohi-LA”
So far, this obvious joke entry is leading in YouTube dislikes. While it’s definitely gotten a lot of hate, we won’t judge you if you like it, and you just might. Do the wieners have your vote?
Ziggy Wild – “Lean on Me”
This country-inspired rock track is reminiscent of Waylon’s Eurovision 2018 effort for the Netherlands. But the question is if, on its own, it’s good enough to represent Estonia. So, in your opinion, is it worthy of winning the semi-final?
Poll: Who should win semi-final two of Eesti Laul 2020?
Of the twelve competing songs, only six will qualify for the final. The first five qualifiers will be determined by a 50/50 split between juries and televote. The final spot will be determined in a second round of televoting. The lucky half dozen will go up against the top six from semi-final one in the grand final.
But which semi-final two act is your favourite? You can vote for as many songs as you like, but you can only vote once! The poll will close ahead of semi-final two on 15 February 2020.
