Luisa Värk together with boyband Traffic will be performing It's never too late thus completing the line-up of this year's Eurolaul, the 2008 Estonian preselection for the Eurovision Song Contest. This year sees also the return of a former Eurovision winner, in a different role this time.

Ines was Imre Sooäär and Riina Kindlam's first choice to perform It's never too late. After she refused, they considered a joint project with the Bedwetters (first ever Estonian band to win MTV EMA) together with Vanilla Ninja Lenna Kuurmaa. As that fell through as well, they turned to Estonian Pop Idol runner-up Luisa Värk who will compete together with boy band Traffic.

This year's Eurolaul will see the return of another Eurostar. Dave Benton, winner of the 2001 Eurovision Song Contest together eith Tanel Padar returns in aid of Iiris Vesik, as he will perform her backing vocals.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
