Since Eesti Laul was launched in 2009, Estonia has sent a diverse range of musical styles and acts to the Eurovision Song Contest. Whilst the main aim of the show is to select an entry for the Eurovision Song Contest, it remains a popular showcase in its own right for Estonian artists. This year a record 238 songs were submitted to the competition. 

You can watch the final on Eurovision.tv on Saturday 5 March 2016.
