EER, the Estonian broadcaster, has received a record breaking amount of entries to compete in Eesti Laul. A total of 189 demos have been sent into the broadcaster.
Ruth Heinmaa, from ERR, has said that around half of the entries were received today – which was the deadline for interested artists to apply. A special jury will listen to all the entries and choose their top 20 for the live shows. Those participants will be revealed on 12th December during “Ringvaate“, which is a popular Estonian television show.
The first semi final of Eesti Laul will be held on 14th February while the second semi final will take place a week later. The grand final will be held on 1st March in Nokia Concert Hall, in Tallinn.
Estonia debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994 with Silvi Vrait and won the event in 2001 in Copenhagen with Tanel Padar‘s and Dave Benton‘s Eveybody.
