"As the interests for the event has risen, then we've made some changes," the Executive Producer of Eesti Laul, Heidy Purga, said. "A jury will pick a total of 20 songs this time from the submitted entries, instead of ten and thus, we'll have two semi-finals."
From both semi-finals, five will qualify for the final. A voting system similar to last years' editions will be used where the first round of voting will be between a jury and viewers, who will first determine the lucky ones to qualify for the final and in the final, the same combination will pick two favourites. The winner of the two so-called super-finalists will be decided by a televote.
The first semi-final will be broadcast from ERR's studios on the 12th of February, the second on the 19th of February and the final will be held as a public concert, once again, on the 26th of February.
The deadline for submitting songs to Eesti Laul is the 17th of December.
Last year, Malcolm Lincoln represented Estonia in Oslo, at the 55th Eurovision Song Contest with the song Siren. In spite of not qualifying for the Grand Final, he's enjoyed success in album sales, placing high in Estonian charts.
