The Baltic nations — Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania — all have returning artists for Eurovision 2021 in the form of Uku Suviste, Samanta Tīna and The Roop. Whilst Estonia and Lithuania held their respective national finals again, Latvia opted to internally select Samanta. But all three have bigger and bolder songs than last year. However, we want to know who your favourite Baltic entry is!
The Baltics at Eurovision 2021
Estonia: Uku Suviste – “The Lucky One”
Estonia’s Uku Suviste absolutely dominated the competition in Eesti Lual 2021 to ensure his place back in Eurovision for 2021. He will be singing the Dream Team penned “The Lucky One”. His entry for 2021 is markedly more up-tempo and contemporary than his 2020 track. Could this change bring him success on his trip to Rotterdam?
Latvia: Samanta Tīna – “The Moon is Rising”
Returning for Latvia, we have performance-slayer Samanta Tīna who’s high energy nature brings her songs to life. Her entry Rotterdam is “The Moon Is Rising” — again an Aminata co-penned feminist anthem. She pulls off the bold sound with powerful vocals, and a bassline we can’t get enough of. Her video is an experience, in the best possible way. Will Samanta bring that hype to Eurovision?
Lithuania: The Roop – “Discoteque”
Finally, of course, we have The Roop for Lithuania. The indie trio bring their brand of zany pop that we cannot stop dancing to. Their entry for this year “Discoteque” is rather in fitting with the world in 2021. The track is about dancing alone in your house. Giving us lockdown chic, The Roop show us we can still have a good time! And the best news is there’s an awesome dance to go with it too, much like with “On Fire” from 2020.
