Missed Opportunities 2014: Estonia!

The Estonian selection Eesti Laul once again featured a number of great songs. This blogger enjoyed Tanja's winning song although I feel Estonia had stronger songs... here's a couple of my favourites:

Lenna Kuurmaa - Supernoova
Supernoova is a a lovely ballad, sung in Estonian! Lenna would've been a great choice. She has entered Eesti Laul on numerous occasions and even represented Switzerland in 2005 - with Vanilla Ninja. Would she have qualified? I don't know to be honest but it's a sweet song! A great effort from Lenna.

Sandra Nurmsalu - Kui tuuled pöörduvad
Sandra Nurmsalu's entry was absolutely the best song in the Estonian national final, in my opinion. Her song was unique, stunning, fabulous and very special. The jury ranked her 9th out of 10 participants and she came 3rd in the televote... What a shame!! Sandra represented Estonia in 2009 with her band, Urban Symphony, and achieved 6th place in the final!

  1. Nope, and nope. Both acts were - uninspiring in the finals. They got trashed by the judges and the public alike.
    The counterprogramming option was Super Hot Cosmos Blues Band, who as a traditional rock band with a catchy tune, would have stood out in the Eurovision crowd. They are tearing up the Estonian festival circuit this summer with their new tunes.
