The songs

Go Away Bird – Sally
This entry reminded me of Goodbye To Yesterday in style. The song was performed by a duet for the vocals and both did a good job.

Juri PootsannPlay
Of note is the fact that the songwriter of this song is Stig Rasta, last year’s Estonian representative. The song was simple and very classy.

This act was a bit weird. It’s another song style that is a bit disturbing. There was a mix of electronic sounds in this act. It’s hard to listen to it because it’s a different kind of entry.

I Wear* ExperimentPatience
The song was performed by a female singer with a strong voice. It’s really different to the previous ones. She sang it well and sold it.

Pur MuddMeet Halfway
This act was a bit mysterious at the beginning but, quickly, the rhyhtm appeared. Enjoyable music with smooth voices.

Grete PaiaStories Untold
Greta tried to represent Estonia in 2013 and attained third place in Eesti Laul that year. She was charming on stage, beautifully dressed and also a good voice.

Pohja-Tallinn & Jaagup KreamEiolemulolla
The song was sung by three rappers and one female vocalist. It’s an enjoyable song with a good rhythm. Even the rap was enjoyable. This could be an interesting choice for Eurovision.

Anett KulbinStrong
The singer wrote her song by herself. She performed it really well. This was a beautiful ballad where the voice carried the story of the song.

Gertu PabboMiljon Korda
The act had a breath-taking background. The song was a bit dreamy and also catchy. Another ballad but with more rhythm than the previous one.

La La LadiesUnikaalne
Tanja, who represented Estonia in 2014, is part of the group as one of the composers of the song. It was an upbeat song, A different style of entry for this evening.
