Eesti Laul (English: 'Estonian Song' or 'The Song of Estonia') is the national selection process in Estonia for the Eurovision Song Contest. The contest was introduced in 2009, replacing the former Eurolaul festival, used since Estonia's first participation in Eurovision in 1993.

The contest was introduced by [1]


The ten selected songs in the contest are shown to the Estonian public through a number of special shows. The final winner is selected through two rounds of voting: the first round selects the top two songs, selected through both jury and televoting; the second round selects the winner from the two songs through 100% televoting.


The first winner of Eesti Laul was Urban Symphony with the song "Rändajad", beating the televoting favourite Laura in the first round.[2] At Eurovision, the group changed Estonia's previous fortunes at Eurovision, qualifying to the final (3rd of the semi-final, with 115 points), and placing 6th in the final with 129 points.

Entries which did not qualify for the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest are listed in red.
