Estonia has chosen the winner of Eesti Laul 2016. Jüri Pootsmann managed to convince his country to hit Play. As a result, he will now represent Estonia in the Eurovision Song Contest.

Pootsmann already entered tonight’s show as the favourite to win the ticket to Stockholm, but that’s never a guarantee for success. He won the jury vote and then qualified for the superfinal, together with former Suntribe member Laura and Cartoon ft. Kristel Aaslaid. Jury runner-up Mick Pedaja just missed out on the superfinal.

The result of the superfinal:

  1. Jüri Pootsmann – Play
  2. Laura – Supersonic
  3. Cartoon ft. Kristel Aaslaid – Immortality

It will be the second year in a row that Estonia will be represented by a song written by Stig Rästa. Last year, he was on stage together with Elina Born to perform Goodbye To Yesterday, which eventually finished seventh in Vienna.

Media Liaison: One of the founding members at escXtra. I'm the Dutchman who loves every little idiotic Eurovision fact there is. I usually listen to a lot of Eurovision music, but when I'm not, I listen to country music, schlager and pop, but mostly artists like Tina Turner, Emma, Ilse DeLange and Helene Fischer. On escXtra, you can find me doing pretty much anything that needs doing: Interviews, liveblogs or just your daily portion of news!
