The broadcaster is happy with the high interest in the Eurovision competition in the country.
As the deadline in Estonia passed today, Mart Normet, head of ETV entertainment department said: "It shows that Eesti Laul competition lives, breathes and rocks! It will be very hard for the jury to pick up ten best songs."
