Estonia Eesti Laul 2022: Artists

Estonia: Songs for Eesti Laul 2023 released

20 songs will be competing at next year's Eesti Laul hoping to get the chance to represent Estonia at Eurovision 2023. The songs are now out. Listen to them and vote in our poll: Who should win Eesti Laul?

It seems that Eurovision's low season is coming to an end. Just yesterday, the Ukrainian public broadcaster released the ten songs that'll compete at Vidbir 2023, and now it's Estonia's turn to do the same.

ERR, the country's broadcaster, has just released the 20 songs that'll be competing at next year's Eesti Laul. The songs will be split into two semi-finals to be held in January.

The reveal show was hosted by TV hosts Grete Kuld and Tõnis Niinemets, and featured a little story about each semi-finalist.

You can listen to the songs here:

Eesti Laul 2023

Three shows will be held at Eesti Laul 2023, with a total of 20 songs:

  • Semi-final 1: 12 January 2023
  • Semi-final 2: 14 January 2023
  • Final: 11 February 2023

10 songs will compete in each of the two semi-finals, and in each semi-final there will be two rounds of voting. In the first round, the result will be determined by a jury's vote and televoting by the television viewers; and in the second round by televoting by the television viewers. If ERR decides, statistics from users' internet engagement may also be utilized as a factor in the first round results.
