Stig & Elina Born, Luisa Värk through to Eesti Laul final ({{commentsTotal}})


The second patch of five finalists of Eesti Laul, which in a week's time will yield Estonia's Eurovision song contest entry, was chosen tonight.

The last five finalists are:

“Goodbye to Yesterday” / Elina Born ja Stig Rästa / Stig Rästa

“This Is Our Choice” / Triin Niitoja & John4 / Jaanus Saago, Triin Niitoja

“Idiot” / Kali Briis Band / Alan Olonen

“Burning Lights” / Daniel Levi / Daniel Levi Viinalass

“Minu päike” / Luisa Värk / Mikk Tammepõld, Luisa Värk

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the night was Luisa Värk, the long-term partner of Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas, advancing to the final, when radio hit "Kuum" by Demie feat. Janice, and critics' favorites Wilhelm and NimmerSchmidt failed to make the final cut.

Listen to the first five finalists here.
