1. Young Girl – Armastus
The two boys of Armastus duet bring a slow and calm song called Young Girl. The song has some old tunes and their voices give bad feelings. The duet appeared on stage at the quarterfinal performance dressed with bathrobes to complement the song and voices.Composed by Jaan Tätte juunior and Taavi Tulev.
2. Moving To Mmm – Marilyn Jurman
Marilyn Jurman will sing Moving to Mmm at Estonian first semi-final, an untempo song about a girl who decides to move to another country with the aim of start a new life. The song has some typical pop instruments and a trumpet wich is played in the second part of the song. A little bit happy and positive song written by Marilyn Jurman and Karl Kanter.
3. Meiecundimees üks Korsakov läks eile Lätti – Winny Puhh
Probably one of the most geek songs of this Eurovision season is Meiecundimees üks Korsakov läks eile Lätti sang by Winny Puhh band, a rock song performed with an strange voice emulating the famous cartoon bear Winnie the Pooh. The members of the band cover their faces and wear strange costumes during the performance. Perhaps they don’t want to be recognized by family and friends?
An extremly annoying and repetitive song composed by: Silver Lepaste and Indrek Vaheoja
4. Taevas valgeks läeb – Sarah
Sarah will sing the song Taevas Valgeks läeb, a not very special but nice rock ballad sang in Estonian language composed by Sirli Hiius and Mathura. She will perform at first semi-final of Estonian preselection.
5. Ring the Alarm – Teele & Tuuli & Ula
This duet will perform an original entry at Estonian first semi-final: Ring the Alarm.

Composed by Priit Uustulnd and Teele Viira.
