Estonia in the Eurovision Song Contest:

Estonia debuted in 1994. They have won the contest once so far. This was in 2001. Last year Estonia was represented by Koit Toome & Laura with “Verona”. Despite being a fan favorite they finished 14th in the second semi-final in Kyiv.

Hey, I'm Dominik from Germany. Watched my first Eurovision in 2003 and I was in love right away! Attended my first contest in 2011 and every contest since 2013. The same happened with Melodifestivalen. Started watching in 2006 and been to every final since 2017 and try to make it to at least one heat each year, too. After all, Melodifestivalen is the real deal ♥
