Tel Aviv 2019

The Eesti Laul jury for the final will only have international members

That is a first in the history of Eesti Laul

After two semi-finals with both the public vote and a jury made if people from the Estonian music industry, the Estonian broadcaster ERR now revealed, that for the first time since the beginning of Eesti Laul, the jury for the final will be made up of only international members.

The international jury will decide 50% in Eesti Laul

The Estonian broadcaster made this change because it’s very hard to find jury members that are not linked to any of the competing artists in the final of Eesti Laul 2019. Therefore they decided to make the jury of 100% international members. The voting process will stay the same way as usual. In the first voting round the jury and the public will vote for their favorites. The three acts with the most points will go to the Super Final. In that it will be down to only the public to decide the winner of Eesti Laul und the respresentive of Estonia in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest 2019.

The running order for the final:

  1. Sissi – “Strong”
  2. Lumevärv ft. INGA – “Milline päev”
  3. Victor Crone – Storm
  4. Kerli Kivilaan – “Cold Love”
  5. xtra basic & Emily J – Hold Me Close – Televote Qualifier
  6. Kadiah – “Believe”
  7. Synne Valtri – “I’ll Do It My Way”
  8. Stefan – Without You
  9. The Swingers, Tanja & Birgit – High Heels In The Neighbourhood
  10. Uku Suviste – “Pretty Little Liar”
  11. Inger – Coming Home

The final of Eesti Laul will take place this Saturday in the Estonian capital, Tallinn.

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 ♥
