The newly expanded Eesti Laul 2022 launched back in November with four quarter finals. And now, almost two months after the fourth episode aired, it’s time for the semi-finals. While the Estonians were in no rush to reach this stage, the semis will be dealt with quickly — semi-final one is tonight, 3 February, and the second will follow just two days later on Saturday 5 February.
Here’s when and how you can watch semi-final one of Eesti Laul 2022.

Semi-final one — 3 February 2022
Time: 18:30 CET to 20:00 CET and 20:30 CET to 21:20 CET
The show will be live-streamed on ETV’s website.
Tonight’s result will be determined across two rounds of voting. The first will see three songs sent to the final through a combination of jury and public vote. A second round of televoting will see two more songs entries progress to the final. Five more finalists will be selected in a similar fashion during Saturday’s second semi.
The first 10 contenders are:
- Elysa “Fire”*
- Helen “Vaata minu poole”
- Andrei Zevakin feat. Grete Paia “Mis nüüd saab”
- Alabama Watchdog “Move On”
- Merilin Mälk “Little Girl”*
- Stig Rästa “Interstellar”
- Triin Niitoja and Frants Tikerpuu “Laululind”
- Kaia-Liisa Kesler “Vaikus”
- Elina Nechayeva “Remedy”
- Ott Lepland “Aovalguses”
Most acts will be performing their entries live for the first time as only music videos were shown during the quarter-finals. The exceptions are Elysa and Merilin Mälk. ERR reports that both singers are out due to illness. They won’t perform live and their music videos will be shown instead.
