On Monday, the nominees were announced for this year's the Estonian Music Awards (EMA). Estonia's 2023 Eurovision representative Alika has been nominated for five awards, the most of any artist involved. Bedwetters were nominated for four awards, while Mari Kalkun, Anett x Fredi and Villemdrillem are all in the running for three.

"Estonian musicians and music are living in their prime," said Vaido Pannel, who is a member of the jury tasked with deciding who will take home the prizes at this year's Estonian Music Awards.

"The opportunity to formalize those creations and bring them to the attention of the public is the best it's ever been. It's great to see that so many new creators have been quickly welcomed and embraced."

"2023 was a really strong year in different genres and musically. Fresh newcomers expanded listeners' playlists and also having a galvanizing effect on more experienced creators," added Pannel.

The winners of the Estonian Music Awards will be announced at a special awards ceremony at Tallinn's Unibet Arena on February 1 at the Unibet Arena. The event will be hosted by singer Birgit Sarrap and Estonia's 2022 Eurovision contestant Stefan.
