Sahlene won the Estonian Eurolaul with her song 'Runaway'. “I love you Estonia”, she said after she performed the song for the second time in the reprise.
She ended up with 85 points, with 12 points as maximum from the last jury member from Israel.
Athough 'Another country song' was the publics favorite, the international jury chose for Sahlene. Sahlene, who's originally from Sweden, got some critics from Estonian people because Estonia won't be represented by an Estonian inhabitant. But when you look at Eurovision history, that's no strange situation.
The webcast of the show was problematic, because there were capacity problems at ETV. Soon there will be a fotoreport of Eurolaul on our website, for those who were not able to see it. You can watch and listen to the Estonian entry for May 25 on our Estonia 2002 page.
