Tallinn, Estonia -

Malcolm Lincoln & Manpower 4 have won Eesti Laul 2010, and will represent Estonia in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Siren.

The decision to move the show to the Nokia Concert Hall in Tallinn, and opening it up for a general public audience proved a big success as the arena was completely sold out. Last years Estonian representatives Urban Symphony opened the show. The crowd enthusiastically supported all of the acts. The ten participating songs were as follows in order of performance :-

  • 3 Pead - Poolel Teel
  • Marten Kuningas & Mahavok - Oota Mind Veel
  • Mimicry - New
  • Tiiu Kiik - The One And Only Love
  • Violina feat Rolf Junior - Maagiline Päev
  • Disco 4000 - Ei Usu
  • Iiris Vesik - Astronaut
  • Lenna Kuurmaa - Rapunzel
  • Groundhog Day - Teiste Seest Kõigile
  • Malcolm Lincoln & Manpower 4 - Siren

After the performances, and while all of the votes were being cast, an interval act followed where there were performances from hard rock band Metsatöll.

As with many countries this year, Estonia opted for a split voting decision to decide their entry. A number of professional juries and the televoting public shared a 50/50 vote weighting. The televoting audience This combined voting resulted in the top two acts moving forward to a sing off superfinal.These were Lenna Kuurmaa and Malcolm Lincoln & Manpower 4.

The superfinal result was decided by televoting only. Malcolm Lincoln and Manpower 4 won the public vote and therefore the ticket to Oslo.

Estonia finished 6th last year with Urban Symphony's Rändajad in the Final of Europe's favourite TV-show. It was the first time that the small Baltic nation qualified since the introduction of the Semi-Finals system in 2004.

Estonia will participate in the first part of the First Semi Final of Europe's Favourite TV Show on Tuesday 25th May in Oslo.

    My favourite song this year is Siren...it is really progressive...for sure..it could be too demanding for this contest...it is too good...but I hope it wins. Malcolm Lincoln reminds me of the artists Joy Division, Heaven 17 and Ultravox...

    Last year Estonia was also one of my favourites. The country really shows a good constant achievement until now.

    Good luck to Estonia from Germany. report to the moderator

    By the way, I prefer the live version of this song to the CD-version. Robin Juhkental's voice sounds clearer in the live version since it is not doubled as it is in the CD-version. The ones of you who don't know the live version should have a look at it. It's fantastic! :-) report to the moderator

    This song is way too good for Eurovision! It has got a beautiful melody, the singer has a fantastic voice, the lyrics are intelligent and the performance is humorous. I particularly like that the choir is immitating the siren's song.
    I fear that many people won't appreciate this act. I love it, though. I will definitely call for Estonia this year. Well done, Estonia! report to the moderator
