Estonia: Eesti Laul 2022 - Fourth Quarter Final

This year, we get 40 songs in the running for Estonia – ambitious given the struggle to cobble together a handful of decent entries in recent Eeesti Laul years.

First we get FOUR video-only quarter finals, kicking off the 2022 season in November and December, then two live semi finals in February 2022, followed by the Grand Final on 12 February.

Voting is the tried and tested 50/50 audience/jury split.
