With the song ‘Storm', Victor Crone will represent Estonia this year. Victor is set to perform 14th in the 1st Semi-Final on Tuesday 14 May in Tel Aviv, Israel. This is 'Ticket to Tel Aviv', our feature counting down to the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest.
The 27-year-old singer from Österåker, Sweden, won his ticket to represent Estonia by winning the final of Eesti Laul earlier in February with the song Storm, co-written by Eurovision Song Contest veteran Stig Rästa. Representing Estonia is a huge honour for Victor, who is hoping to make proud the country that has welcomed him so warmly.
Who is Victor Crone?
Victor grew up in a musical family, at the age of 14 he started singing and writing his own songs and only four years later he travelled to the United States to write music. In 2015 competed in Melodifestivalen, the Swedish national final for the Eurovision Song Contest.
In 2016 Victor met Estonian Stig Rästa during a songwriting trip to Stockholm, where they instantly connected. Shortly afterwards, Stig invited Victor to Estonia and they have been working together ever since – meaning many, many trips to Estonia for Victor.

Storm was created during one of Victor's visits to Estonia. Victor feels his song Storm should be open to the interpretation of the listener, but describes it as a song about: "weathering hard times – and knowing that they will eventually come to an end."
