eurovision 2016 estonia

A record 238 songs have been submitted into Eesti Laul for the 2016 selection, up 19 songs on 2015.

The news of the record breaking number of submissions was said to signal the right time for Eesti Laul to move the final of the show to the Saku Arena, the 2002 Eurovision venue. Mart Normet the producer of Eesti Laul said that:

Elina and Stig increased in both international and domestic interest. Hopefully this year will be at least as strong, and some of the range of timeless songs.

Now 20 songs will be selected by a 11 member jury of music professionals on Wednesday and Thursday before the finalists are announced on November 5 from 18:00 CET.
