Semi Final 2
Artist: Koit Toome and Laura
Word of the day
Just teile - Just for you
Like the play this song refers to, this song is a tragedy. It is better than rapeface from last year, but that doesn’t say much. This year’s Entry could almost be a Stock Aitken Waterman and in parts the male vocal even sounds a bit Jason Donovan. Tragic.
Not one but two repeat offenders are representing Estonia in 2017. Koit Toome represented Estonia in 1998 and Laura Põldvere in 2005 as part of Suntribe. The songwriter is also a repeat offender having been a writer on Suntribe’s 2005 entry as well as Estonia’s entries in 2009 and 2011. Sven Lõhmus songs have not got better over the years. Some would say they have gone downhill since 2009.
Laura has been desperate to return to Eurovision, taking part in the national selections (Eurolaul and then Eesti Laul) 3 times as a solo artist. She also released a compilation album of all her singles from both her albums. When your record company does that it is usually because they are desperate to make some money out of your nearly non-existent career.
Koit was only 19 when he first went to Eurovision in 1998 and finished 12th. He probably wont reach those lofty heights this year.
