Elina through to Lisbon for Estonia

Elina Nechayeva

As usual Estonia broadcaster ETV put on a great show for their Eurovision national selection, Eestilaul. The show last night came live from the venue that hosted the  2002 contest – the Saku Suurhall in Tallinn.

Ten songs whittled down through two semi-finals competed for a place at Eurovision 2018. Voting was split into two rounds. In the first, a mix of public and jury votes picked four songs for a second round.

Song Performer(s) 1st Rd Jury 1st Rd Televote 2nd Rd Psn
Young Karl Kristjan & Karl Killing (ft. Wateva) 3 8 6
Sky Eliis Pärna & Gerli Padar 1 3 10
Knock knock Nika 4 1 9
Thousand words Sibyl Vane 10  4 4
Home Stig Rästa 7 7  9686 2
Laura (walk with me) Vajé 5 10  8506 3
La forza Elina Netšajeva 12 12  43445 1
(Can’t keep calling) Misty Frankie Animal 8 2 7
Drop that boogie Iiris & Agoh 6 6 5
Welcome to my world Evestus 2 5 8


I *think* that Elina won by a country mile but I am waiting for that to be confirmed by ETV – they usually release the results quite quickly. (edit – and they have been and I was right!!!)

In the meantime – here’s the song
