Eesti Laul, the Estonian selection for Eurovision, is back. The 2011 edition will feature two semifinals, to be held on February 12th and 19th. The final will take place on February 26th.
An internal jury will select 20 entries out of all the submissions. Each of the semifinals will feature 10 songs, proceeding to the final 5 of them. This result will be decided by a mixture of jury vote and televote at a 50/50 split. Therefore, 10 songs will reach the final battle to represent Estonia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2011. The winner and thus Estonian representative will be decided by 100% televote.
Estonian broadcaster ERR has set the submissions deadline for December 13th.
The Baltic country was represented in Eurovision 2010 by Malcolm Lincoln with the song Siren, not qualifying for the final.
