It’s gonna be a busy Saturday with seven countries choosing their act for Eurovision 2023 in Liverpool. One of them is Estonia. They will try to reach the final once again after Stefan gave them a 13th place finish in Turin last May.
In order to make the final line-up for Eesti Laul 2023, the participants needed to survive one of two semi finals. Both of them took place in January. Five advanced from each semi, along with an additional two wildcards, giving us the 12 finalists we’ll see tomorrow. Ahead of that, we asked you to name your favourites. After counting 3,067 votes, the results are in.
According to our poll fan favorite OLLIE should go to Eurovision 2023
If it were up to you, Estonia would go with OLLIE. His entry “Venom” reminds us of rock songs from the early 2000s and brings a lot of energy. He received 952 votes and thus is your favorite act in Eesti Laul 2023. That’s 31.04% of all votes!
Second place goes to the other big fan favorite Alika. She managed to earn 651 votes with her entry “Bridges” — that’s almost 300 fewer than OLLIE. Alika shot to fame when she was crowned the winner of the 2021 season of Estonial Idol. Now she wants to represent Estonia in Liverpool with a song she penned alongside Wouter Hardy, writer of Eurovision winning song “Arcade” by Duncan Laurence.
On to third place, and it’s SISSI, who is no stranger to Eurovision fans. She has tried to represent Estonia a few times and, of course, her father is Dave Benton, part of the only act who ever won Eurovision for Estonia back in 2001. Her entry “Lighthouse” got 267 votes.
Bedwetters, another fan favourite, came fourth with their entry “Monsters” with 205 votes. And close behind them we find JANEK. He earned 196 votes for his entry “House of Glass”.
