This will be the first time since 1998 where an Estonian selection show does not feature any songs in English.

Changes to the Eesti laul Format

In the quarterfinals, five songs from each show will progress to the semi-finals. Three qualifying songs will be chosen by the public, and two by a jury. The semi-finals will feature two rounds. The first round will see the jury vote winners qualify to the final, while the public vote determines the winners of the second round.

The Grand Final will follow a familiar format, with the show split into two rounds. The first round will determine the acts in the Super Final, and those acts are decided equally between jury and public vote. In the Super Final, solely the public vote will determine the winner.

There are additional plans to host a show between April and May called Eesti Laulu, which will feature performances from the Super Finalists.
