Tel Aviv 2019

Victor Crone wins Eesti Laul 2019!

Get that YouTube ranking video ready, because there ain’t no stopping the song-train this Super-Saturday! After two exciting rounds of voting, the winner of Eesti Laul was finally crowned! Or should we say Croned in this case? Yes, Victor Crone will represent Estonia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019! Hooray!

The voting

The final had 12 plucky contestants singing their entries and trying their best NOT to get hit in the face with any LED sticks. The results for round one were determined by combining the international jury scores with the televoting ones. While we did find out exactly how the international jury ranked all the acts, we have no idea how the overall top three nor the 4th place did in the televoting. However the top three moved STRAIGHT on to the super-final. Based on what we DID find out though, the results looked like this:

Taking Tel Aviv by storm

Congratulations to Victor once more! Now all that’s left to do is send him off to Tel Aviv in May to perform at Eurovision and hope that he picks up a few points from Sweden and other countries along the way. How he will do there is anyone’s guess. All we know is that packing should take a LOT less time than last year. To see Victor’s final performance again, look no further than down below

Did the right song win? Who was your favourite in Eesti Laul? Has anyone heard what happened to those cats from the last semi? Maybe Victor can adopt them and have a whole new stage show!
