ERR, the Estonian national broadcaster, has announced that the Eesti Laul format will remain as the country’s selection process for Eurovision 2024. The submission window for Eesti Laul 2024 closed today and although until a week ago only 12 entries were submitted, it turns out that actually the vast majority of the submissions were made in the last moment.

A total of 215 songs were submitted claiming the Estonian representation in Malmö. Specifically, out of the 215 songs

  • 88 of them are written in Estonian language

  • one is written in Italian!

Moreover, among the candidates there are both famous and established artists as well as newcomers, who also intend on getting in front of a large audience via Eesti Laul.

What’s next?

This year, a special jury of 35 people is anticipated to evaluate the submissions in the upcoming period and will therefore choose the 20 songs that will advance to the next stage of the competition. Out of the 20 songs:

  • five will be chosen by the jury in order to advance directly to the Grand Final,
  • while the other fifteen will participate in the Semi-Final.

During the Grand Final and following the vote of the television audience and the jury, three entries will advance to the Super Final. At this point in the competition, Estonia’s representative in Malmö will be chosen solely by the television viewers.
