It all comes down to this. On Saturday 6 March, 12 superstar acts will take to the stage in the grand final of Eesti Laul 2021, as they bid to become Estonia’s next Eurovision entry. Now, Estonian broadcaster ERR has published the running order of the final.
First to the stage is Egert Milder. Last year’s third alternate will kick off the final with his folk-pop track “Free Again”. The first half of the final also sees Suured tüdrukud, Hans Nayna, Ivo Linna, Robert Linna and Supernova and Karl Killing perform. The 2020 Eesti Laul champion and bookies’ favourite to win Uku Suviste will perform sixth.
The second half of the evening will see Sissi, Jüri Pootsmann, Redel, Koit Toome and Andrei Zevakin & Pluuto perform. Koit and Jüri are also big favourites to win with both the bookies and our readers — they both scored well in our Eesti Laul semi-final one and semi-final two polls. Kadri Voorand will close the night with her powerful piano number “Energy”.
Grete Kuld and Tõnis Niinemets return to host the final.

Once all acts have performed, Estonia will engage in two rounds of voting — much like the semi-finals. Firstly, a 50/50 combination of jury votes and public votes will choose the top three acts. They will all perform their songs again in the superfinal. Then, their fate is in the hands of the Estonian people. The champion will be chosen by 100% public votes.
The winner of Eesti Laul will go on to represent Estonia at Eurovision 2021 in Rotterdam, where they will perform in the first half of the second semi-final.
The grand final of Eesti Laul 2021 takes place on Saturday 6 March at 18:30 CET.
