Getter Jaani has won Eesti laul 2011
After a first selection as finalists were Outloudz and Getter Jaani finally the public has chosen the song of Getter Jaani “Rockefeller street” to represent Estonia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2011. The talent and career of Sven Lõhmus decision made public by the song of Getter. The jury did not help the classification of Getter for the final but the public vote put her in one of two finalists. Ithaka and Rolf had no good luck with either the jury or the public. I think these songs would have been perfectly represent Estonia in Germany, but Sven Lõhmus leave with dignity represent the position of Estonia in the festival… remember that this pep1000 channel has caused since I discovered Sven and your job… More and more people in Europe know their songs… Bravo Getter, new Estonian talent!
This Saturday is the final phase of “Eesti Laul 2011” live on ETV at 21.35 h (Estonian time!). Watch it online at the link http://otse.err.ee/etv/
Clearly this year is much higher level than last year and many artists can win this contest. Ithaka Maria has a song with great force, ideal for these festivals, so do Getter Jaani, a lively song, Jana Kask and Rolf Roosalu have a great melodic songs, the beauty of Victoria with a great pop song… but Pep1000 is decided by Rolf: It takes many years trying to represent their country at Eurovision and I think it will do very well!. A beautiful song and a good artist have come together this time, and we can not forget the beautiful lyrics of Liis Lass. Rolf I wish you good luck for this Saturday!!
Videos of the yesterday show!
“Rolf Roosalu” All & Now Live in Eesti laul 2011 2n semifinal
Ithaka Maria “Hopa’pa-rei” 2n semifinal
After the sudden elimination of the song performed by Uku Suviste, tonight we have seen 9 songs instead of 10. Sorted songs correspond to 2 of my choice: Ithaka Maria and Rolf Roosalu, the two essential songs for the final and MID, Mimicry and Orelipoiss. I honestly had changed Mimicry and Orelipoiss for Sofia Rubina and Tiiu Kiik… Tiiu Kiik’s song “Second chance” this year was much better than last year presented.
Finally we have a good final for next Saturday… perhaps the song that does not deserve to be there is “Valss” by Orelipoiss… with this kind of songs Estonia will do nothing good in Germany!.
This coming Saturday… The second semifinal… I think clearly classified Ithaka Maria and Rolf Junior. Rolf has a slow and emotional song and Ithaka has made a great song very energetic and appropriate for these festivals… I decided by Rolf… 4 years ago trying to represent your country and is a good artist… There are other artists as Uku Suviste that appeal to women, Sofia Rubina with extensive professional experience… Definitely this year there is much more artistic level and I choose to Rolf and Ithaka: the other three representatives to let them free choice!
we have more videos from yesterday! Victoria’s super hit!
Getter Jaani “Rockefeller street”
We have the first semifinal of Eesti Laul 2011:
Pep1000 been fully successful with 3 artists: Victoria, Getter Jaani & Jana Kask.!! I am very happy with the level of this year … the level of songs has been much higher than last year’s festival. I’m happy… although sometimes the internet connection was not right. They have also moved into the final “Noorkuu” and “Outloudz “… It was a very exciting first semi-final … Soon put the videos!
We further found the festival by the ETV website… Great!
This Saturday is the first semifinal of the competition (21.35 h Estonian time). We further found the festival by the ETV website… Great!
In the first semifinal would clearly be classified Victoria, Getter Jaani and Jana Kask… but sometimes not always right in my predictions … The Victoria and Geeter songs are for me much better than the other… but the Jana’s song is already well known in Estonia… we wait and see what happens!.
The show, hosted by our favorite artists Piret Järvis and Lenna Kuurmaa two specialists in these types of festivals…

We finally have the last song contest this year of a famous artist … Ithaka Maria has made a happy song, energetic and interesting chorus for Eurovision … and with the great idea to accompany the promotion of the song with a nice video in which she looks very sexy and see the video is nice … Is now Ithaka Maria a rival for Rolf Junior?…. I think that… YES!. In these contests all influence, clearly a good promotion of the song will be definitive for assessment of the public …. Rolf perhaps should have made a small video for the song … https://pep1000.wordpress.com/about/ithaka-maria/
Victoria’s song is good, very appropriate for this kind of festivals and it is accompanied by a good video clip like that of Ithaka. Well for me it is a song of good candidates to win the contest!. Very good Victoria!!!!
Here you have a good sample of songs that have gone through the competition between the years 2000-2010 … I hope that the level increases as these songs!
On the official website of Eesti Laul on ETV and you can hear some fragment of the songs …. not yet available Sven Lohmus song (Getter Jaani), Uku Suviste, Ithaka Maria ….. in principle should be the majors competitors of Rolf.
The artistic level does not seem too high … I do not understand! … with the great artists in Estonia!!. Mimicry’s song has improved somewhat over the track last year but it isn’t a winning song, Elmayonesa is a very bad song … the moment a song is worthy enough to Victoria “Baby had you” compared with the others ….
We have more new songs concerning disqualified for the final: This time is the song “Ilusad inimesed” performed by Laika Virgin feat. Fredy Schmidt because was published before September 1st and therefore did not meet the Eurovision rules. They have been replaced by Meister ja Mari and the song “Unemati”.

Already have some of the songs prefinaliter of Eesti Laul 2011. Will be analyzed in detail!!.
Here is the link to information: http://www.hot.ee/eestilaul2011/
“As the interests for the event has risen, then we’ve made some changes,” the Executive Producer of Eesti Laul, Heidy Purga, said. “A jury will pick a total of 20 songs this time from the submitted entries, instead of ten and thus, we’ll have two semi-finals.”
From both semi-finals, five will qualify for the final. A voting system similar to last years’ editions will be used where the first round of voting will be between a jury and viewers, who will first determine the lucky ones to qualify for the final and in the final, the same combination will pick two favourites. The winner of the two so-called super-finalists will be decided by a televote.
The first semi-final will be broadcast from ERR’s studios on the 12th of February, the second on the 19th of February and the final will be held as a public concert, once again, on the 26th of February.
The deadline for submitting songs to Eesti Laul is the 17th of December.
Estonia is already working on the “Eesti Laul 2011” to send its representative to Eurovision to be held this year in Germany. This year, unlike previous select 20 songs, and there will be two semifinals, 12 and 19 February and one final on February 26 where they will choose 1 song selected two previous days. At a minimum this year is guaranteed a good show with two semifinals and one final.
After the failure of the previous year, hopefully the jury and the public choose a good finalists!.
More information about the 20 finalists will find it here (in Eesti keele!)
