The show to be broadcast on ETV will start at 20:30 CET (21:30 local time) and it will be hosted by Märt Avandi and Ott Sepp at the Nokia Concert Hall in Tallinn. Ten acts will perform one song each and the winner will be chosen by a mixture of televoting and jury voting. Between the ten entries, another nine songs that are not taking part in the actual national final, will be presented. These songs were written by the hosts.

In 2009, Estonia was represented by Urban Symphony, who finished third in the second semi final and sixth in the final with their song Rändajad. It was the first time since the introduction of the semi final stage in 2004 that the country made it to the final. In 2010, Estonia will compete in the first semi final of the Eurovision Song Contest on 25th May.
