Estonia have competed 22 times in the Eurovision Song Contest. Their first attempt in 1993 saw them fail to qualify for the final, something that they repeated on a further seven occasions. Their most successful period was from 1996-2002 which gave them six top ten finishes including a win in 2001 for Tanel Padar/Dave Benton/2XL with ‘Everybody’ and a third place the following year with Sahlene’s ‘Runaway’. In 2015 they had been earmarked as early favourites when they selected Stig Rasta and Elina Born to represent them with ‘Goodbye to Yesterday’, the momentum for the song waned however and they finished in seventh place. Estonia return in 2016 with their Eesti Laul selection competition. Read on to find out more.
Belgium don’t have the best track record at Eurovision. They have come last eight times, failed to qualify from the semi finals a further eight times and have received nul points on two occasions (1962 and 1965). Their best result was their only win which was for Sandra Kim in 1986 with her song ‘J’aime La Vie’. Last year saw a change in fortune for Belgium when they chose Loic Nottet as their entry. The ‘Rhythm Inside’ singer gave them their best result in 12 years with a top five finish and the most points that a Belgian entry has ever scored (217). In 2016, they will want to emulate this success, so let’s take a look at their national selection process and the acts who hope to follow in his footsteps.
