The only singers with a chance at succeeding in Eurovision are Koit and Uku despite their songs being in a 2015/2016 style. But, so were SCREAM (Sergey Lazarev 2019), Zero Gravity, Michael Schulte’s song and other 2018, 2019 and 2020 songs. That something doesn’t sound up to date doesn’t matter, because as we all know, music is timeless. If music wasn’t timeless, neither Jamala nor Salvador Sobral would’ve won in their representing year. Why other fan favorites shouldn’t win: Gram of Fun’s song is 80’s style and 80’s style songs don’t do that well usually, San Marino can proof that.… Read more »

I voted for “Wingman” and “One by One” as these two are the only ones I am actually listening to. Besides these two, “Magus Melanhoolia” is also pretty good, definitely my number three. Egert Milder, Koit Tomme, Sissi, Kadri Voorand, Nika Marula, Karl Killing, and HELEZA have nice songs as well. I hear 10 decent songs and 2 of them could easily reach TOP15. Honestly, I think “One by One” has more chances because it’s in English, but personally I lean to “Wingman” because of its authenticity and modernity. I’m shocked Uku Suviste is killing this poll because I find… Read more »

Heleza is my no 2, and I enjoy Koit, Uku and Nika’s songs as well. I think Uku’s song is better than last year, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he would win based on sympathy, but I think there are better songs in this years selection.

There is a lot of diversity and some known artists, but none of the songs really excited me. Surprisingly i enjoyed Ivo Linna. Here is my top:

1   Sissi – Time
2   Ivo Linna, Robert Linna ja Supernova – Ma Olen Siin
3   Nika Marula – Calm Down
4   TANJA – Best night ever
5   Rahel – Sunday Night
6   Tuuli Rand – Üks öö
7   Uku Suviste – The Lucky One
8   Jüri Pootsmann – Magus melanhoolia

Off Topic : According to Le Parisien, Masked Singer France first ever winner (from 2019) Laurence Boccolini will co host the new national selection Eurovision France alongside etablished French commentator Stéphane Bern. This is a cool news because she will definitely bring fun and positivity to the show! She has a lot of humor but also know how to be serious at the right time, plus she has a 20 years background of hosting various TV shows on the first French channel TF1 which is not negligible!

ok another thought! It’s great we have Koit and Ivo Linna in the mix since there’s more possibility that older people will have their votes more spread across them three (Uku, Koit and Ivo) – means more chance of younger acts going forward.

For everyone interested, I translated the Estonian (and the French) songs, so, a really simplified meanings listed: Magus melanhoolia is about not letting depression getting the best of you, but also owning the fact we all get sad and pensive sometimes. 6 is about being persistent and not letting your past mistakes define you. Wingman is about seduction in a club. Uks oo is about a steamy encounter and dancing with someone. Tuuled is about being ready for a new beginning through metaphors of ever changing winds. Ma olen siin is about a hope for a better tomorrow knowing someone… Read more »

I cannot stop thinking about Estonia. There is so much talent and work and creativity behind each one of the entries in this selection. They all deserve a fair shot at victory. In recognition of all the artists and also for the contemporary musical culture of Estonia. Regarding the big contest: the more out-of-the-mold and bold entries, the better. Hopefully more juries will appreciate outstanding entries with honest and genuine local artists and composers and lyricist instead of the Eurovision factory-made tunes. Better results will make other countries have the courage to enter outstanding music. And the quality of national… Read more »

Actually not, Most songs are awful this year. Unoriginal, very similar sounding, forced singning and weak, some are even oldfashioned and instrumentally bland. Something you wont even remember, even Tartu, which was funny at first, is annoying at second listening. Like most songs in most countries, nothing awesome. Real good songs are missing entirely. I mean not only Estonia, but also rest of the countries.

Knowing the circumstances, I think that people will go for Uku Suviste again and knowing the circumstances, I can’t blame them. The song itself is fine, I guess, a bit more modern, but I think there are many options I’d personally prefer on this list. Juri, Andrei & Pluto and Heleza have interesting songs with different sounds we haven’t heard as much on ESC (plus having another language can be a plus, if there’s coherency in it). I’m not sure would any among them have a huge success in ESC, but you never know. As proven by Georgia in 2016… Read more »

With Jüri, Andrei & Pluuto and Heleza, live delivery will be key. In the studio cut they may all sound at least interesting, but we’ll have to see how it pans out live. But if some sort of rap or hip hop is going to do well in Eurovision, I guess, it’ll be the more melodic kind Andrei & Pluuto are offering.
As for “Tartu” – it’s really good! The visuals are a little peculiar, that’s what throws you off. 😉

The delivery is always important, but especially with these ”risky” songs. Juri’s song sounds great (to my taste, anyway) as a studio version, but this could easily turn to screeching in live. Knowing that he’s a great vocalist, I don’t expect that to happen, but there’s always a danger.

I’ll have to translate all of these songs, though (6, Tartu, Wingman, Kaos…). I translated Juri’s, but still did not others. Just in case their lyrics aren’t worse than Alabama’s. 😉

After having a conversation below about how The Lucky One is not a good song, I decided to listen to it a few more times. It actually grew on me so much, and I quite like it now. My only issue is the production, which is really compressed and feels very restricted. But if this won I wouldn’t be mad. (I still prefer Magus Melanhoolia by miles though)

Just to clarify, the type of compression being used in this song is extending the tails of the drum/cymbal sounds, making the whole song muddled. Compression is not a bad thing in and of itself, but it is being used wrong here.

Here is a quote from CNeT: “The easiest way to think of dynamic range compression is making loud stuff quieter, and quiet stuff louder. It’s like putting a speed limiter on a car, making sure no car can go faster than 65 mph, but no slower than 45. ” This is what is happening in the Lucky One. The softer drum sounds such as soft cymbals and shakers are being elevated to the same volume as harder drum sounds such as a kick and a snare. It is also, as I said, increasing the tails of these sounds. This creates… Read more »

Magus Melanhoolia is a bad choice, because as we all know, Jüri’s vocals are bad. His performance in ESC 2016 is proof for that (yes, it isn’t up to date, but that doesn’t change anything). Besides that, Magus Melanhoolia is an auto tuned song, which will easily flop in Eurovision, despite it being a good radio friendly song.

Who will win: probably Uku, but I would pay attention to Koit… And since Eesti Laul has a superfinal, what if they divide votes and a third act unites all the people that want a fresh face as a winner? I guess this is the tiny chance of a surprise happening. Who should win: I’ll stick to Jüri (though I’m not sure how he would do in ESC, juries haven’t been rewarding risks lately and at least Roxen and Victoria tend to have indie entries with more mass appeal) and especially Gram-of-Fun, which I dare to say it could be… Read more »

I really don’t understand why people would insist on sending Koit Toome to Eurovision again: He has already gone twice with limited success and nothing indicates that it will be any different with this song. I haven’t made up my mind about Jüri. I think it’s a peculiar choice to sing half of the song in a shrieky head voice, when he naturally has a very warm and resonant deep baritone, but that is perhaps just me, I know, people think high notes are somehow better or harder to hit than low notes (which technically isn’t true).

In general, you are right, I prefer deeper voices, not just for male singers. However, I was one of the few people who liked Ryan O’Shaughnessy a lot. And I adored Eugent Bushpepa. The thing is, I don’t always like it if you force your voice upwards, like Jüri does it here, but if you have a naturally higher pitched voice, that doesn’t immediately put me off. I just don’t understand why someone with a chest voice as beautiful as Jüri Pootsmann would shriek his way through his chorus. It’s unexpected, I’ll give you that. 😉

Fair enough. I tend to like all of vocal types equally, I just judge on whether it sounds good to my ears. Personally, I think Jüri’s head voice is not forced and is just as beautiful than his chest voice, which I also love.

We have no disagreement, I prefer deeper vocal ranges because in general they sound better to my ears. But there are exceptions. And head voice is always forced, we don’t naturally sing or speak in head voice. There are people who can make a smoother transition between registers than others, though, and some have a smoother quality to their head voice. It depends highly on subjective perception if you think a vocal tone is pleasant or not. And sometimes an unpleasant vocal tone even goes well with a particular song. So, to sum it up, I wouldn’t be too categoric… Read more »

But what if they believe he deserves “vengence” for what happened to “Verona”? The irony is that if he doesn’t get to the superfinal, I can see his votes going to Uku and making his life even easier.

Laura competed last year and didn’t reach the superfinals, so I’m not sure that Koit will achieve so only on the laurels of Verona. I do find his song this year more memorable than Laura’s last year.

I am still rooting for Juri to win this and avenge himself from 2016, but MM is an even riskier song. I wouldn’t want him to be the first ESC contestant to finish last twice. There’s a risk, but at the same time, I could see him finishing in top 10, if the song clicks with some people.

No disrespect to Laura, but with that song it was tough to succeed. Also, Koit’s song shares a vibe with “What Love Is” and I would say it’s a better effort. Maybe that’s why I believe he would be the biggest threat to Uku. I guess Jüri’s hypothetical chances in Eurovision would be better if we already hadn’t so many confirmed artists that could fight in the same lane. I mentioned Roxen and Victoria before, but there’s Gjon’s Tears in the same semi, it would be a direct comparison. So, yeah, it would be risky. On the other hand, the… Read more »

The article in the address bar asks, “Who WILL win Eesti Laul?” but the article title in front of my asks, “Who SHOULD win Eesti Laul?”. I’ll answer both!

WILL: It’s Uku vs. Koit as either of those two getting into the superfinal will win the public vote. Egert’s the most likely if those two miss out.

SHOULD: Best chance at ESC for Estonia? Egert or Gram-Of-Fun look the safest qualifiers to me but Koit’s song is riskier in terms of qualification but with the potential of the best final result.

It took me a while to formulate an opinion on this year’s Eesti Laul, but I think I’ve finally come up with something that resembles a top 5: “Ma olen siin” – Ivo Linna, Robert Linna, Supernova – it’s a good rock song, enough said. To be honest, I don’t much care for the lyrics, but musically it’s on another level.

Estonia should think twice before voting for something that sounds like an album track from a forgotten Foreigner record straight out of the 80s. Estonia has much better options: “Lost in a dance” sounds to my ears like a synth rock track that could actually be from this decade and has a really catchy chorus. “6” has a very intriguing mix of French and Estonian and showcases a very interesting kind of rythmic singing in the verses. And I kind of like both the groovy “Wingman” and the noisy “Tartu”, although I wouldn’t recommend sending the latter to Eurovision. 😉

It does, because the Czech Republic has recently become a country that tries to insert modern sounds into Eurovision.

Yeah, I wasn’t that keen on 2018, as you perhaps remember I wasn’t crazy about the winner, and there was really only one song I liked, Stig Rästa’s “Home”. There was more variety, that’s for sure, but the quality was rather mediocre, for example the rap songs were really bad, much much worse than this year. So I guess of all the editions of Eesti Laul I’ve followed, this year’s selection would be the strongest. 🙂

Well, the lyrics seem pretty nonsensical and probably meant in a humorous way. Thus, it could be described as a ”joke entry”. However, I wouldn’t equate ”joke” with ”cheap”, which is what a lot of people are meaning by it. For instance, ”Uno” or ”Hey, Mamma” are joke entries, but they are really good, quality songs too. On the other hand, something like the Lithuanian ”Nomads in the Night” was never meant to be taken as a joke entry, but his bizarre delivery made it such, but in a bad way. So, there’s a whole spectrum of what a ”joke”… Read more »

Estonia has surprised me this year with such quality selection that it is *very difficult* for me to pick one song. It would have been easier to have the songs for each semi so I could pick two – one for each.
So I am picking “Ma olen siin” now because it grabbed me at first listen. The video conveyed an intriguing situation which I could not understand but was curious about. I like the Estonian language too.

It is sympathy vote, as you’re voting for what Uku’s gone through instead of the music.
You know that artists don’t have a sad backstory to rely on in Eurovision?
Then what is the point of voting for him? Nobody’s going to care about his backstory in the contest.
It’s a musical contest, not a storytelling competition.

Estonia, in 2015 you made my favourite song ever un esc, do It on 2021 with Lost in a dance. Its much more original and cool than the others!

It would be more than a gram of fun to have “Lost in a dance” as the EL 2021 winner! It’s so different from the usual and predictable Eurovision fare.

Uku of course. He has a great song.

My favorites are Koit and Uku. Koit’s song is really beautiful imo and Uku’s song is a considerable improvement over his entry last year. I do think that Uku representing Estonia would be the best scenario at this point, as he tried several times and did win Eesti laul last year, so he deserves to go to Eurovision. Overall, it’s a good quality national selection. Good job Estonia, Eesti Laul never disappoints!

Now while I can admit that The Lucky One is better than What Love Is by a mile, it is by no means a good song. I have no idea why it is winning this poll.

In no way, shape, or form is it any of those things except for it being a song.

you should urgently update your Spotify lists with recent releases. This song is 2021 all the way.

Are you joking? Listen to SOPHIe or Arca or Sevdaliza or FKA Twigs, and once you have done that I dare you to look me in the eye and tell me that The Lucky One is 2021 all the way.

OK it’s not not modern, but it definitely isn’t a definition of modern. It’s not 2020 or 2019, it could be 2015/2016 or something. None of chart topping artists would want to sing that song. It’s also super generic imo.

The song of Uku is the definition of CURRENT. The #1 genre in music today is the 80s pop vibes that Weekend introduced with his album and Dua Lipa followed. “The lucky one”, as all songs that are released now days on spotify, follows that trend.

except that Dua and the Weeknd do it supremely well. Uku does not.

The fact is that the song is exactly what I said : modern, current, contemporary.
The fact that you don’t like it is just your opinion, in which from what I see the majority of the readers of this website seem to disagree.

It’s not a fact. It’s an opinion. And isn’t it ironic that you proclaim it to be modern when it could have popped right out of the 80s. It’s the delusion for me.

I literally hear no 80′ vibes in Uku’s song. 80’s inspired song is the song from Gram-of-Fun.

It’s basically “What Love Is”, but with better lyrics?
Still sounds like a Kirkorov. I ain’t buying it…

In my opinion, give “Lucky one” to Hans Nayna and give “One by One” to uku Suviste, Uku would still be the winner of both this poll and Eesti Laul.
Both songs are made of the same steel, both written with cheesy lyrics.
It is my opinion, I don’t think people would have voted “Lucky one” that much if it was sung by someone else.
By the way, my top 3 winners are Lost in a dance, 6 and Wingman 😀

If The Lucky One was Hans’ song, Hans would be my favorite. Eurovision fans aren’t pity voters. If they were pity voters, Sergey Lazarev would’ve been 2nd or 1st in 2019. Waylon would’ve made the top 10 in 2018, etc etc. Eurofans aren’t pity voters. If they think a song is their favorite, it is their favorite and not because of other reasons.

I really want “Heaven’s Not That Far Tonight ” to win but I know it won’t becauae its not modern enough. I also like Lost In A Dance because it gives me that real 80s vibes but again probably won’t win.
