by Sanjay (Sergio) Jiandani 52 views7

ERR, the Estonian national broadcaster has confirmed its participation at the forthcoming 2017 Eurovision Song Contest scheduled to be held in Ukraine next year.

Estonia will yet again opt for a national selection in order to select its 2017 Eurovision hopeful. The 2017 Estonian national final Eesti Laul is scheduled to be held on 4 March at the Saku Suurhall (Eurovision 2002 venue) in Tallinn. Tickets for the show have already gone on sale.

In 2016 Juri Pootsmann flew the Estonian flag in Stockholm with his entry Play. Despite an extraordinary performance he failed to qualify for the grand final.

The preliminary dates for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest have been set on 16, 18 and 20 May.

    ESTONIA was expected qualifier country this year
    and its really pity that it didn’t work out 4 the Estonians at the end
    & surprisingly they were eliminated on the SF unfortunately.
    Estonia even finished just last on the SF sadly.

    To be honest I was expecting to hear (much) better songs
    for this year’s line up on Estonia’s Eesti Laul 2016.
    Hopefully the songs of next year’s Eesti Laul 2017 will be better! :)

    So we already have the 2nd country confirming officially its participation for next year’s EuroVision
    and its **ESTONIA** :))

    ~ WINNER in 2001
    ~ 3rd in 2002
    ~ 4th in 2000
    ~ 5th in 1996
    ~ 6th in 1999, 2009, 2012
    ~ 7th in 2015
    ~ 8th in 1997
    [ Overall Estonia has finished 9 times in the top10 ]

    Estonia has participated 22 times in EuroVision
    & next year it will be their 23rd participation.

    If I had the ability & the conditions in my life really allowed me to [ If I was rich or wealthy]
    I would wanna go to every country’s NF! <3
    Especially to attend live to such prestigious NF grand prix like the ^Eesti Laul^ <3

    This year was Estonia’s 22nd participation in EuroVision.
    It was the first time ever that ESTONIA finished LAST on the SF. [or in a Final]
    ( Although they had also finished 18th with only 8 points in 2008, they were 2nd last that year )

    So its their worst result in their country’s 22 years history in ESC.
    #22 is also bad number for me personally [for my own personal reasons]

    Estonia’s 1st ever participant in EuroVision 22 years ago
    SILVI VRAIT sadly passed away 3 years ago on 2013 [on 28 June] due to brain cancer tumor.
    She was 62 years old.

    Unfortunately she even finished 2nd last [24th/25] in the EuroVision of 1994 with only 2 points. But at least she had the honour of being the FIRST act of Estonia in EuroVision
    & also to be one of the few lucky estonians singers that fulfilled their dream to go to EuroVision.
