National final season continued on Saturday with the fourth quarter-final of Estonia’s Eesti Laul 2022. Ten acts competed for five places in the semi-finals.

Similar to the other quarter-finals in recent weeks, it was a low-key affair. Rather than having the acts perform their songs live, the songs were assessed with music videos. The first three places were decided by the public televote, with the final two places decided by the jury vote. 

The five qualifiers were: Ott Lepland, ELYSABlack VelvetMinimal Wind feat. elisabeth tiffany and Púr Múdd & Shira.

Eesti Laul 2022 fourth quarter-final qualifiers

Ott Lepland – “Aovalguses”

Ott Lepland was the first qualifier that got through on televoting. “Aovalguses” feels like a clear sequel to “Kuula”. It’s a slow piano ballad in Estonian, but unlike “Kuula” it does not have the build-up, but rather delivers the vocals and power of Ott’s voice almost constantly. At times it reminds me of those strongly orchestrated songs of the Eurovisions of the 1990s, but because of the modern arrangement, it does not come off as dated. 

ELYSA – “Fire”

ELYSA was the second qualifier from the televoting. She brought the flames to the fourth semi-final of Eesti Laul 2022. Her entry “Fire” has a clear 00s vibe and slightly reminds me of Margaret’s “In My Cabana”. That’s not surprising, as both songs were co-written by Linnea Deb. It is a dance pop song that’s reminiscent of recent Cypriot entries at Eurovision. 

Black Velvet – “Sandra”

Black Velvet were the last televoting qualifier from the fourth quarter-final. “Sandra” is an uptempo Estonian pop rock track that brings the feel good vibes from the 1990s and beyond. The song will definitely be the biggest sing-a-long track of this year’s Eesti Laul…and without being out of date.  

Minimal Wind feat. elisabeth tiffany – “What To Make Of This”

Minimal Wind feat. elisabeth tiffany were the first jury qualifiers. The group of musicians that combine Minimal Wind and elisabeth brought a slower and more intimate singer-songwriter song that gives slight jazz vibes. That songwriter angle is clearly visible in the role that they gave the electric guitar in the instrumentation of the song. 

Púr Múdd, Shira – “Golden Shores”

Púr Múdd and Shira brought a well-produced pop song with a mid-tempo chorus to the fourth quarter-final. They were rewarded for that by being the last act to qualify for the semi-finals of the show. After being eliminated last week, Shira bounced back at the right moment. By the way, the track’s music video has references to the Netflix hit series Squid Game

While we wait for the live shows in February, who wants to make predictions on who will make the final? I watched a semi finalist recap at this link, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRMid6EkKGk and I made my predictions in that order based on which ten snippets grabbed me at the moment. Here are my predictions below: Jaagup Tuisk: Yes Stig Rasta: Yes Maian: Yes Boamadu: No Evelin Samuel: No Helen: No Andre Zevakin Ft. Grete Paia: Yes Jyrise: Yes Frants & Triin: No Kaia-Liisa Kesler: No Stefan: Yes Elina Nechayeva: Yes Anna Sahlene: Yes Merilin Malk: No Alabama Watchdog: No (Personally I don’t… Read more »

My only disagreement is about Maian. I think she will miss the final and Evelin Samuel will qualify thanks to the televoting. Maian had to depend on the juries in her QF as well, I see this happening again. I think that the rest of your predictions are correct as of now (everything can change). Also as far as Alabama Watchdog are concerned, I have a big problem with the fact that the song musically is surely in my top 5 but given that I don’t like their opinions and the messages that they want to transmit, I end up… Read more »

You know, I actually agree with you about Maian. I also have a feeling she’s not going to qualify, but I didn’t want backlash for making her a predicted non-qualifier. Actually, through my recap run-through, I had 9 yes’s, 7 no’s and 4 maybes on first run. Maian was actually a maybe and I decided she was the best of them so that’s why she’s a qualifier in my predictions.

Yes I can see what you mean by “backlash” xD. Nevertheless I believe that as of now she won’t qualify. Everything can change of course after the live performances. Re-examining your list once again I also have second thoughts about Jyrise’s qualification. I think it will also be borderline. Perhaps Boamadu also have a shot at qualifying, given that the final has to have a rock song

I don’t dislike Fire at all, but I do find it very overrated. As of now, it’s in my early 20s in my top 40. There were some much worse songs in the competition (IMHO), with some of them even qualifying (some juries should really learn to move on from certain messages (wink-wink).
Anyway, will you be making a top 20 or a top 40 video? In any case, I can’t wait. 🙂

For instance, I’m interested where you’ll put Elina N. and Ott, because sometimes you like atmospheric ballads with big voices, and sometimes you find them boring (same as most of us, for that matter).

This is only my opinion, but Let’s Talk About feels so cheap, with neither the production or the melody convincing me into buying those lyrics. He looked happy presenting his song, so I’m glad for that, but I am in no way surprised that it didn’t advance.
Another one pretty close is My Mom. I have a pet peeve with songs named after parents which are actually about a break-up (see Mamo (Ukraine 2009), and that’s melodically a much more compelling entry).

Same, I usually mark down my first impression, but in many cases, it changes after awhile. Especially if my first reaction was in the realm of ”okay”. It can end-up as ”meh” or ”pretty solid” after a second take. Usually, I am pretty good at identifying the songs I love or cannot stand at first, but for a lot of these shades in between, I need a second or a third take.

I also dislike Fire. Not that much because of the song itself but because of the well-known formula of the dance-pop bop that it is trying to follow: even if it clearly didn’t bear fruit in the 2021 contest. And I really think that it won’t win Eesti Laul.

Everyone is sharing their overall Eesti laul favorites, so why not…

My favorites are Stefan and Jaagup Tuisk. Either would likely put Estonia in my top 10. A strong third place is Elina N. Her voice gives a magical touch to this atmospheric song. Then, in no particular order, I really enjoy the songs of Stig Rasta, Merilin Malk, Jyrise, Maian, Triin & Frants, Kaia-Liisa Kesler, and Ott Lepland.

A special nod to Peeter Poder, Desiree, Goodreason, and Ariadne, who should have qualified.

Fire is my favourite, it kinda feels like Norway 2012, especially the backing track, if she’s given revamp time it could be a great top tenner but not right now. Right now Plaksuta or Hope feel like the optimal choices, Vaikus deserves more respect also.

Ott is back … and back are all the shady “boring ballad” comments that are so fondly part of the Eurovision family. Regardless of meaning, depth, emotion, whatever … the 2 Bs (and not Björn and Benny) will always stand ou loud and clear in the judgment of a song that for so many kills the ESC vibe of fun, joy, and entertainment …
Welcome back Ott … and see who here is going to “kuula” you and fall asleep after having drunk too many red bulls.

Well, the first phase of Eesti Laul 2022 is over. What an exciting four-week ride we’ve had as we saw 40 songs become 20 semi-finalists. One thing that impressed me was that we had an exact 50-50 split of Estonian and English songs and we have that exact ratio for the semi-finalists, so great job. Let’s congratulate all 20 artists who made it this far and see them perform live in February for the chance to make the final and win the ticket to represent Estonia at Eurovision 2022.

OK tbh I did not even bother to sit and listen to the songs or watch the shows (except for checking a bit a recap of quarter final 4 a d listening soem seconds from fire just to see what the hype is all about) but honestly I feel so sorry for Ariadne. I discovered her yesterday and I wanted her to qualify just bc of the hair lol. But then I heard her song and I was really surprised and sad she didn’t qualify. Now her song is among my 19 fav songs overall

I gotta give kudos to the Estonian broadcaster for adding these quarterfinals. After this show, I feel like the lineup of 20 songs that are in the semifinals are WAY stronger than your usual Eesti Laul semifinalists.

My two favorites of this batch, What To Make of This and Golden Shores, suffer from the same problem: underpowered, almost lazy sounding vocals. It seems to be intentional, but I can’t see it working for Eurovision where the vocals can make or break a performance.

The single best part of any of these songs is the guitar in What To Make of This and what should be a duet with Elisabeth Tiffany instead drowns her out.

Reply to  Ellie

I understand your frustration, because when “What to Make of This” started, for a few seconds I thought that I had found my favorite in Eesti Laul. But it never really took off. Airy vocals are very present in indie music these days and when they’re well done it can be beautiful (“Jezinky” is a good example of that in ESCZ). But alternative acts should be more careful with that when joining competitions with general audiences, because for some jurors and televoters it may pass as a vocal fragility even when it isn’t.

Very true about that trend. It’s also music that can sound great with headphones on, yet when translated for a big stage doesn’t live up to the hype of a studio mix. A strong performer can make it work, but until we see these live, it’s a big question mark.

In other words, you’re in the mood for an Estonian male/female duet this year? From those, I would favor Andrei and Grete but I agree their song is a little repetitive. Though my top 3 so far would be Jaagup, Maian and Elina. And I’m smelling a superfinal between Ott, Stefan and Stig, if I figured out how Estonians vote by now.

Jüri’s outfit was great, but not just that: he was so comfortable hosting it that if Estonia manages to win Eurovision in the next few years, I’ll star campaigning for him as a host!

And If I’m not mistaken, Alban was also your choice for Albania (not that we had many options there this year). In terms of Eesti Laul, I’m seeing peoples’ preferences all over the place and I believe it’s because there’s not a huge difference of quality between the favorites.

In a quarterfinal full of middle of the road entries, Ott stood out with the quality of his vocals. Plus we already know he’ll sound just like that when performing it live. I prefer the jury’s saved songs than the other 2 the televote put through (one of them is actually my least favorite song in the whole competition), I just don’t know how neither of them allowed Ariadne to advance. All things considered, we’ll have enjoyable semis and I don’t see an obvious winner to the whole thing.

Also having heard all contenders for the win now, I am predicting (and hoping) that STEFAN will be this year’s Eesti Laul winner. My top 5 of this year’s contest as of now is the following:

2. Stig Rasta-Interstellar
3. Elina Nechayeva-Remedy
4. Ott Lepland-Aovalguses
5. Kaia-Liisa Kesler-Vaikus

Honestly, Ott won this quarterfinal for me, and it’s not even close. Aovalguses is a really soothing, lovely song. I feel a similar artistic vibe as in Kuula, and I appreciate a different approach. While Kuula has its title repeated throughout the song, Aovalguses has it said only twice near the very end of the song.

On the first listening, I found Ariadne’s song to be the second best one here, so its omission from the qualifiers’ list is odd.
