BC, Tallinn, 13.12.2011.Print version

A record amount, 159 songs, were submitted to the contest Estonian Song 2012 by deadline on Monday, and one of them will be chosen as Estonia’s entrance at the Eurovision Song Contest next year, LETA/National Broadcasting reports.


A music experts jury will select 20 semi-finalists from all the songs that were submitted and those will be declared this Thursday at ETV’s evening show “Ringvaade”. Last year, 140 songs were submitted to the contest.


“If things progress this way, selecting 20 finalists might soon not be enough,” ETV’s entertainment programmes manager Mart Normet was happy. “The trust between musicians and organisers of the contest is truly strong”.


In semi-finals on February 18 and 25, ten songs will be selected by people and jury that will get to the final concert on March 3 at the Nokia concert hall in Tallinn.
