Eurovision 2020🇪🇪 Estonia

🇪🇪 LIVE from Tallinn: Eesti Laul 2020 Final Rehearsals

We review the rehearsals of the finals of Eesti Laul 2020, live from Tallinn!

Laura – Break Me

Closing the show is Eesti Laul veteran Laura Põldvere. Being no stranger to the Eesti Laul stage, Laura owned the entire arena from the moment she entered the rehearsal. She is tasked with bridging between a pre-recorded visuals and her live performance, which is a difficult undertaking.  

The performance is certainly a show-stopper, both literally and figuratively. The staging is unchanged from the semi-final. The establishing shot is of Laura in a fabulous white leotard in a dream sequence, being thrown around by shadow puppet demons either side of her. I admire the ambition considering how stripped-back most of the staging is this year in Eesti Laul overall.

Many viewers of her semi final commented about her vocals being below her usual standard. Having seen the performance from the arena during the rehearsals, we’re glad to say she sounded much better, and should be delivering a far stronger vocal in the final.

Ever since I saw Helena Paparizou's triumph at Eurovision in 2005 (at the tender age of 6), I have been crazy about Eurovision. From the regional native language bops and shrieky female-led balladry to the sophisticated avant garde pop songs and chart-friendly EDM, I love everything about this cultural phenomenon. I'm currently working as a Delivery Manager in a software development team.
