Estonia started their national final process with 40 songs judged solely by their studio versions over the month of December. But now the 20 that survived the first cut will have to perform live during the semi-finals of Eesti Laul 2022.
The first semi-final will take place on 3 February, where ten competitors are set to battle it out for the five qualification spots to the grand final.
All ten acts are hoping to continue on their journey to represent Estonia at the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin. But which of them do you want to see progress further?
Below are the ten songs due to compete in semi-final one. Take a listen and then vote for your favourites.

Eesti Laul 2022: Semi-final voting rules
As detailed in section 7 of ERR’s Eesti Laul 2022 rules, voting will work slightly differently in the semis compared to the quarter-finals.
Five acts will advance from each semi-final. The first three will be determined using a 50-50 combination of jury and public voting, while the remaining two qualifiers will come from a second round of public televoting from the acts that remain.
Unlike in previous years, there will not be a one-week gap between the semi-finals and grand final. Estonia will crown its Eurovision 2022 singer on Saturday 12 February.
