Eurolaul

Eurolaul

Eurolaul is an annual televised competition to select a song to represent Estonia in the year's Eurovision Song Contest, and literally means 'euro song' in the Estonian language. For many years the competition differed from the national selections of most other countries in that the outcome was solely determined by an international jury. The rules were changed to entrust the Estonian public with the choice by means of televoting in 2004 (winner Neiokõsõ, second Kerli Kõiv) and 2005 (winner Maarja-Liis Ilus), but due to the disappointing results in the ESC in those years there was a return to the former system in 2006. Eurolaul also selected Tanel Padar and Dave Benton's song "Everybody" in 2001, which went on to win the contest for Estonia.

Although Estonia is the country most associated with the term "Eurosong", several other countries also occasionally refer to their preselection contest as "Eurosong" also.
