Estonia Counts Down to its Eurovision Final

On the night of March 3, ETV will be presenting the final round of the Eesti Laul, the contest that determines the nation's entry in the Eurovision Song Contest.

ERR News will be offering a live feed of the show, which kicks off in Tallinn's Nokia Concert Hall at 21:35 local time (19:35 GMT).

Ten finalists, chosen from among the 20 who took part in semifinal rounds held the previous two Saturdays, will by vying for a coveted spot at the international competition in Baku in late May.

The list of finalists is as follows:

"Valedetektor" (Lie Detector) - Loss Paranoias
"City Nights" - Teele Viira
"Made Up My Mind" - Liis Lemsalu
"Tantsulõvi" (Dance Lion) - August Hunt
"Mina Jään" (I Will Stay) - Lenna
"I Don’t Know" - POP Maniacs
"NASA" - Traffic
"Oblivion" - Tenfold Rabbit
"You're Not Alone" - Birgit Õigemeel & Violina
"Kuula" (Listen) - Ott Lepland

Videos of the entries can be seen here to the right.

Regional online betting service TrioBet is giving Lepland's powerful, romantic ballad "Kuula" and another romantic number, "Mina Jään" (I Will Stay) by Lenna Kuurmaa, the best chances for an outright win, while putting 100-to-one odds on "Valedetektor" (Lie Detector) by the Tartu band Loss Paranoias.  

The outcome, however, will be determined by a combination of jury and televoter input during the live show.

The Saturday night event will be hosted by well-known TV and theater actors Tiit Sukk and Taavi Teplenkov.
