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|
|Thousand words||Sibyl Vane||10||4||4|
|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
