Earlier this month, Estonia’s broadcaster ERR revealed that Eesti Laul 2023 will be held in two separate venues. The semi-finals will be held in the Viimsi Artium. The final will then take place in the Tondiraba Ice Hall in Tallinn.
The twenty competing acts were revealed on the light news programme Ringvaade, giving each artist the chance to prepare music videos ahead of the national selection. The two semi-finals will take place on January 12th and 14th, with the final taking place on February 11th.

Estonia’s Eurovision Journey
Estonia has appeared at almost every Eurovision since their debut in 1994. They have won the contest once with Tanel Padar, Dave Benton and 2XL in 2001, singing Everybody. Other notable Estonian entrants include 3rd placer Sahlene with Runaway in 2002 and Ines with Once In A Lifetime in 2000, who placed 4th. More recently, their highest-placing entries have been Urban Symphony with Randajad in 2009 and Ott Lepland with Kuula in 2012, both of whom finished in 6th place. In 2022, they elected to send STEFAN through Eesti Laul to the contest with “Hope”. He successfully qualified for the final and finshed in 13th place with 141 points.
