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!

Uku Suviste – What Love Is

Uku comes into the final as a favourite, and he does well to live up to the hype with his performance. Unlike with Uudo’s song, the grandeur of the official video for “What Love Is” lends itself to epic staging, and Uku does well to achieve a ‘big’, expansive performance.

Whilst the running order is otherwise effective in breaking up the finalists to not have similar songs together, I don’t think “What Love Is” itself shines in this position. Between “I’m Sorry. I Messed Up” and “Out in Space”, the song itself doesn’t quite pop like a national final ’WINNER’ often would. What he does offer is one of the more ambitious presentations of the final, and being one of the few artists to use props on stage (a large sign and a few hundred candles, to be precise). 

One of the big favourites going into tomorrow’s final, this is expected to make it to the super final in the very least. Although I personally prefer “Pretty Little Liar”, Uku remains a formidable threat to Jaagup Tuisk.

Costa Christou

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.
