  1. pretty underwhelmed with eesti laul this year. Only one that stands out is the popera song by Elina Nechayeva for me.

  2. Eliis Pärna & Gerli Padar – “Sky” is AWESOME as well..

    It reminds me of Irleand in ESC in 90s..

    It’s extremely nostalgic and fantastic. :)

  3. Haven’t listened to anything from A Dal yet. Will wait for the heats’ allocations to listen to them by ten :)

  4. Extremely disappointed with Eesti Laul this year. My favorites are the ones by Etnopatsy, Iiris, Stig, and the twins, but nothing really stands out as something that will make it to my top ten (maybe even top twenty). Estonia used to be my favorite ESC country I don’t know what’s been happening these past few years :(

  5. Α Dal 2018- Victor Kiraly/Budapest Girl:

  6. A Dal 2018.Favorite to win alert:

  7. Lovely and nostalgic.Very Shevek-appropriate:

  8. I’ve hear a few songs from here and there and it’s becoming clear to me that A Dal 18 will be a strong edition.
