Estonia: Changes in the lyrics of the entry!

Khover, a member of 5miinust, one of the two acts that are going to represent Estonia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 in Malmö, Sweden, gave an interview to the show “Hommik!” of R2 where he shared his impressions after their victory in Eesti Laul 2024 as well as that there should be a change in the lyrics of the entry before the Competition. The goal of this year’s participation, according to Khover, is to finish in the first half of the scoreboard, in the Eurovision final.

“On Saturday we started in such a way that we had two perfectly acceptable scenarios, either fourth or first place. Fourth place would be a big failure and a disaster on a personal level. Magnus Müürsepp, who was supervising us, said that if you lose, all the cameras will be on you, then no one will talk to the winner, so you have to be polite, and I said that I don’t sell my principles for a penny. My mother was also afraid that I couldn’t lose.”

Then Khover, regarding the lyrics, said that they should proceed with the removal of the word Lay’s, the well-known snack brand, as according to EBU regulations lyrics containing brands are not allowed.

In addition, Khover also highlights the points of Estonian participation that need attention. One concerns Pääkoer, a member of the band 5miinust, who has a problem with the rhythm and has therefore acquired a Klick Track device. The other point concerns the verse “Ujee!”

In the end Khover added:

“The plan is to reach the top half of the table in the Eurovision final. The main thing is not to win, second place would be ideal. We’ve got a decent Backstreet Boys-esque song, something that suits everyone’s music taste.”

Estonia will be represented at the upcoming competition in Malmö, Sweden by the bands 5miinust and Puuluup with the song “(Nendest) narkootikumidest ei tea me (küll) meda”. In the first phase Estonia will compete in the second half of the second semi-final on Thursday 9 May, claiming one of the ten tickets to the grand final.
