The winners of Eesti Laul 2010, the band Malcolm Lincoln represented Estonia in Oslo. The band’s name originates from the quiz show “Who wants to be a millionaire”, in which a woman incorrectly answered Malcolm Lincoln (the right answer being Abraham Lincoln). The band characterizes their style as “electronic pop with a slightly quirky undertone”. Their song “Siren” was in that category. In the lyrics, the singers describes his life as lame: “Has been oh lame so far I wasted years, I wasted time” and asks for a second chance: “Give me time and give me strength Give me strenght to carry on Give me bit of hope now, help me through the night”. During the performance the camera spun around the lead singer several times. Estonia came 14th and thus failed to qualify for the final.
