According to Estonian media, the favourites so far are Iiris Vesik, Marten Kuningas & Mahavok and most of all, Lenna Kuurmaa. In a poll at one of the most popular entertainment portals, Elu24.ee, 30% of the voters preferred Lenna's song, followed by Marten's (27%) and Iiris with 13%. Their readers like the song by 3 Pead the least, followed by Tiiu Kiik's and Disko 4000 - they all got round 2% of the votes.
In another popular portal, Publik, people seem to prefer Mimicry's (21,1%), Groundhog Day's (19%) and Marten's (15%) songs. The least favourite being 3 Pead (1%), Tiiu Kiik (2%) and Disko 4000 (5%).
However, comments in various portals also point out the most suitable song would be Rolf Junior's as it would be 'the most Eurovision-ish entry'. What is that exactly, remains to be seen and defined.
What will be Estonia's choice for Europe's favourite TV-show, will be decided on the 12th of March, from the Nokia Concert Hall in Tallinn.
