The drummer of the Estonian entrant for the Eurovision Song Contest 2004 (ESC), Peeter Jõgisoo, promises to surprise the audience in Istanbul. The whole group, Neiokõsõ, itself has been working on new choreography.

So far he hasn't said what it is going to be but said that it has already been agreed with the organisers of the ESC. “It's going to be a little shock-thearaphy for the audience,” he added.

They don't think much of the low places at fansites and betting offices. The composer, Priit Pajusaar (also the composer of the Estonian entry for the 1996 ESC and co-composer of the 1999 ESC entry) added that it's pure silly to jump to conclusions based on the opinion of such a small group who has their own (different) taste and usualy has a small effect on the final result. “Still I ask the Estonian audience not to get their expectations too high because there's still a chance we won't make it to the final but if we do well then it's going to be a nice surprise for everyone.”

The Estonian national final's winner, the group Neiokõsõ, will perform in the EU Expansion Event on 30th April. The EU Expansion Event will be a night of celebration and unification for all 15 existing member states of the European Union, who welcome the 10 new members.

Live from two central venues situated in Berlin and Warsaw, major acts of the new member states will perform. The European Union Youth Orchestra confirmed its appearance in Berlin as well as major international artists like Cecilia Bartoli, Nigel Kennedy etc. Neiokõsõ will sing, in the live broadcast coordinated by European Broadcasting Union, their entry for Eurovision Song Contest 2004, Tii.

Neiokõsõ have opened website at neiokoso.com, where it is possible to check out the video of the song and listen to audio version of the entry Tii. Additional information about the group and the performers is provided.

Estonia will perform in the semifinal of the Eurovision Song Contest on 12 May.
