ETV held its traditional Eesti Laul (Estonian National final) yesterday, after two qualifying rounds. The event took place in the Nokia Concert Hall in Tallin and was hosted by Marko Reikop and Henrik Kalmet.

The winning song, “Amazing” is a pop-dance act with an impressive staging and choreography.
