Estonia at the Eurovision Song Contest
The baltic country debuted in the contest at 1994 with Silvi Vrait and her song ‘Nagu merelaine’. Since then, Estonia has participated at the Eurovision Song Contest 25 times, and have made it to the final 16 times.
In 2020, Estonia selected Uku Suviste to represent Estonia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020, with his song ‘What Love Is’, which was written by Uku with Sharon Vaughn and produced by Dimitris Kontopoulos.
