In a cut-throat high quality semi-final round in Eesti Laul, held in the University of Tartu sports hall. Presumably they kicked the basketball out this week and this allowed fifteen songs to get ruthlessly cut down to five qualifiers. This was done by a mix of televote and jury with jury picking the first three and Televote choosing the next two. The results are shown in the table below.

|I Don't Know About You
|Cartoon and Ewert Sundja
|Here's Where I Draw the Line
|Hold Me Now
|Ewert and The Two Dragons
The five very lucky qualifiers will meet the five pre-qualified songs as decided by ETV to fight it out at the Eestilaul final on 17th February.
The highlights from this show were not only those fifteen songs, but an opening extravaganza. This incuded a ska, or possibly Reggae, inspired performance of Tattoo by “Angus” – whoever the hell they are!
