Background

Prior to the 2019 Contest, Estonia had participated in the Eurovision Song Contest twenty-four times since its first entry in 1994,[1] winning the contest on one occasion in 2001 with the song "Everybody" performed by Tanel Padar, Dave Benton and 2XL. Following the introduction of semi-finals for the 2004, Estonia has, to this point, managed to qualify to the final on five occasions. In 2018, "La forza" performed by Elina Nechayeva allowed Estonia to qualify to the Grand Final for the first time since 2015, in which the song placed eighth.

The Estonian national broadcaster, Eesti Rahvusringhääling (ERR), broadcasts the event within Estonia and organises the selection process for the nation's entry. ERR confirmed Estonia's participation at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest on 3 September 2018.[2] Since their debut, the Estonian broadcaster has organised national finals that feature a competition among multiple artists and songs in order to select Estonia's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest. The Eesti Laul competition has been organised since 2009 in order to select Estonia's entry. Before that, the Eurolaul format had been used.

Before Eurovision

Eesti Laul 2019

Eesti Laul 2019 was the eleventh edition of the Estonian national selection Eesti Laul, which selected Estonia's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. The competition consisted of 24 entries competing in two semi-finals on 31 January and 2 February 2018, leading to a twelve-song final on 16 February 2019.[3]

Format

The format of the competition includes two semi-finals on 31 January and 2 February 2019 and a final on 16 February 2019.[3] Twelve songs will compete in each semi-final and the top six from each semi-final will qualify, completing the twelve-song lineup in the final. The results of the semi-finals were determined by a 50/50 combination of votes from a professional jury and public televoting for the first five entries, then the final spot is decided in a second round of voting, televote only. The winning song in the final will be selected over two rounds of voting: the first round results selects the top three songs via the 50/50 combination of jury and public voting and the second round decides the winner from those three songs, televote only.

Competing entries

In early September 2018, ERR opened the submission period for artists and composers to submit their entries up until 6 November 2018 through an online upload platform.[4] Foreign songwriters are also eligible to submit songs for the first time. A fee has been imposed on songs being submitted to the contest, with 25 Euros for Estonian language songs and 50 Euros for songs in other languages.[3] From all 216 songs submitted to ERR, a jury panel selected the 24 songs for the competition, with the selected entries being announced on 15 November 2018.[5] These entries were then revealed on the 1st December 2018 as 1-minute clips on TV, and later as full videos on the ERR MENU portal. The selection jury consisted of Ivar Must (composer), Lenna Kuurmaa (musician and singer), Kaupo Karelson (TV producer), Leen Kadakas (Manager of Universal Music Baltics), Vaido Pannel (Radio Sky Plus music editor), Allan Roosileht (Star FM presenter), Laura Põldvere (singer), Karl-Erik Taukar (singer), Dagmar Oja (singer), Rolf Roosalu (singer), Renee Meriste (Music manager), and Sten Teppan (Vikerradio music editor).[6]

At Eurovision

According to Eurovision rules, all nations with the exceptions of the host country and the "Big 5" (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) are required to qualify from one of two semi-finals in order to compete for the final; the top ten countries from each semi-final progress to the final.

Semi-final

Estonia will perform in the second half of the first semi-final.

Voting

Voting during the three shows involved each country awarding two sets of points from 1-8, 10 and 12: one from their professional jury and the other from televoting. Each nation's jury consisted of five music industry professionals who are citizens of the country they represent, with their names published before the contest to ensure transparency. This jury judged each entry based on: vocal capacity; the stage performance; the song's composition and originality; and the overall impression by the act. In addition, no member of a national jury was permitted to be related in any way to any of the competing acts in such a way that they cannot vote impartially and independently. The individual rankings of each jury member as well as the nation's televoting results will be released shortly after the grand final.
