Eesti Laul is one of the most exciting projects and, to be honest, the biggest celebration of Estonian music. The atmosphere created in the hall during these live shows is indescribable. It is a privilege to be a part of it and to be part of the process

There will be a strong competition, because the songs are really very good – you can hear that the songs have been worked on and there are both old and new and exciting artists for me. From pop princesses to rockers. I’m looking forward to the live performances. I already have a favorite!
