Estonia in the Eurovision Song Contest

The Baltic country made their Eurovision Song Contest debut in 1994, with Silvi Vrait and โ€˜Nagu merelaineโ€™. Since then, Estonia has participated at the Eurovision Song Contest 26 times, reaching the grand final 16 times. However it was in 2001 that Estonia achieved their first and to date, only victory in the contest with โ€˜Everybodyโ€˜, performed by Tanel Padar, Dave Benton & 2XL.

Back in 2020, Estonia selected Uku Suviste to represent Estonia with, โ€˜What Love Isโ€™ which was written by Uku, alongside Sharon Vaughn and produced by Dimitris Kontopoulos, who of course is from the famed Eurovision ‘Dream Team’. Unfortunately, the contest was cancelled, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rather than re-select Uku internally, they instead gave him an invitation to compete in Eesti Laul 2021, which he accepted. Despite being up against 24 acts once more, Uku won Eesti Laul for the second year in a row with โ€˜The Lucky Oneโ€˜. However, this success failed to translate in Rotterdam. During the contest he performed 2nd in semi-final two, where he finished 13th with 58 points.

My first Eurovision memory was watching 1994 as a hatchling. I've been tapping my talons to the bops and bangers from Europe and beyond ever since! I finally spread my wings to attending the contest in Lisbon 2018 and am now a regular at many events and national finals - especially my regular nest at Eesti Laul.
