Heidy Purga (producer of Eesti Laul) says it’s a big compliment for the contest to have received such a high number of entires: "We have been on a tidal wave for years now. I don’t remember there having been so much direct communication with different artists before the deadline, all from enquires about the appropriate title for their entries to questions regarding the rules. We can say that Eesti Laul is a unique event, which artists set their sights on".

Mart Normet (head of entertainment) said, "We’re proud. Exaggerating slightly, I can say that everyone is here: the good old artists as well as new talents. The competition will be fierce."
