Eesti laul

This post is a few months late but better late than ever!  Estonia has a great song picked out for Eurovision and the competition to choose that song was intense! I don't remember an Eesti laul with this many incredible songs. Well done Estonia!  Here are some of our favorites:

Our favorite was Kerli's spirit animal.  This got second and I couldn't help but feel that this was a missed opportunity.  To have a super start like Kerli with a winner waiting to represent your country? How do you not take that and run with it? Anyway, thank you Kerli!

The winner was Koit and Laura, a solid song.  It has a bit of slavic flair to it, I think it will do well with countries from the East.  It was also great to see Koit reclaim his status as the king of pop.  Ott Lepland is a good singer, Jüri Potsman has potential but there is only one Koit.  The hair, the voice.  I can't wait until May because it's Koit time!

Adriane had a great song, she did better than some expected.  The song is a bit boring but becareful because if you decide to listen to it a second time it might turn into 10 times, very catchy song.

This song was awesome but made me feel old somehow.  This had the spirit of a bunch of 20 year olds and I'm in my 30's.  I'd never be able to pull off the tennis shoe look, even though it should come naturally for an American.

Rasmus got third and had a really good song.  He is pure and rock and roll.  I thought about trying to get a hair cut like him but then I realized that there was no point in trying, it would take a lot more than a hair cut to bring out the Rasmus in me. 

Liis Lemaslu is a total super star, fantastic song.  When discussing death and the afterlife people often note that it will be Peter at the gate of heaven, I hope it's Liis Lemsalu singing this song.  What could be better right?

Ivo Linna is a national treasure.  Put this song on your play list, it will always make you happy if you need a good pick me up.

Hey Kiddo was an awesome song but it didn't make it to the finals.  I guess it was a bit too much for Estonians, but I love it.

I have no idea what this was but it was pure Eurovision.  There is something almost immoral to not vote for the essence of Eurovision.
