On Saturday 16 November, we’ll get to hear the first ten songs of not just Eesti Laul 2022, but of the entire 2022 national final season. And while we’re still a few days out from hearing the quarter-final one entries from Estonia’s newly revamped selection show, we do know the identities of the acts.
So as we count down the days to the weekend, we want to know which performer you are most excited for. The line-up includes a number of familiar names, both from previous editions of Eesti Laul as well as from Eurovision.
Eesti Laul 2022: Notable Quarter-final One Names
Fans will know Stig Rästa as Estonia’s Eurovision 2015 representative. He performed alongside Elina Born and placed seventh with “Goodbye to Yesterday”. Stig returned to Eesti Laul in 2018 and picked up the bronze medal.
Another past Eurovision star who’s also in the mix is Evelin Samuel. She represented Estonia at the contest in 1999 with violinist Camille, where they performed “Diamond of Night” and finished sixth.
There are also a number of former Eesti Laul contestants. Jaagup Tuisk competed in the national selection in 2020, ultimately ending up as the runner-up with his song “Beautiful Lie”.
Girl-group Little Mess also appeared at Eesti Laul 2020, but failed to make it out of the semi-final with “Without A Reason”.
Maian previously competed alongside Karl-Kristjan and Whogaux at Eesti Laul 2017. They placed fourth in the final with “Have You Now”. But for 2021, Maian will be back as a solo artist.
Kéa returns after previously participating in 2016 and 2021. Meanwhile, this will be Traffic’s fifth appearance at Eesti Laul, after the band previously competed in 2009, 2012, 2014 and 2020.
