Koit Toome & Laura win Eesti Laul 2017!
After a tense Superfinal in tonight’s Eesti Laul, Koit Toome & Laura have won with their song “Verona” and will be representing Estonia at the Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv in May!
A packed Saku Suurhall in Tallinn saw performances from the 10 finalists to an enthusiastic crowd
1. Liis Lemsalu – Keep Running
2. Koit Toome & Laura – Verona
3. Karl-Kristjan & Whogaux ft. Maian – Have You Now
4. Lenna Kuurmaa – Slingshot
5. Daniel Levi – All I Need
6. Elina Born – In Or Out
7. Ivo Linna – Suur lotteri
8. Rasmus Rändvee – This Love
9. Ariadne – Feel Me Now
10. Kerli – Spirit Animal
Three songs went through to a Superfinal, chosen by 50% televote and 50% expert international juries, these Superfinalists were :
Koit Toome & Laura – Verona
Rasmus Rändvee – This Love
Kerli – Spirit Animal
The lines were then re-opened for 100% televote to chose the winner and Koit Toome & Laura were announced! There was a nice nod to the Oscars debacle, as Mart received another envelope in a frantic exchange with a production assistant, however this second envelope also confirmed Koit & Laura as winners!
Estonia will be participating in the second half of Semi Final 2 on May 11th, and will be hoping to qualify after last year’s disappointment when Juri Pootsman with his song “Play” failed to make the Grand Final
