    Having watched Estonia’s performance last night it was no surprise it didn’t qualify. They took the excellent elegant video-like staging concept they had in the Eesti Laul semi-final and progressively mangled it with each revision. What on earth was Koit doing look at Laura with that artificial cheesy grin on his face?

    Interesting to see that the pattern of 4 songs out of the last 6 taking another beating like last year. SF1 had 2/6 and SF2 had 3/6. The exact same results as last year.

    I know that Ola Melzig must do a great job, but is there no end to the Swedish grip on the contest?
