A total of 202 songs were received (approximately 50 more songs than last year) and a 17-member jury selected the 40 songs that will appear on the show. This year, Eesti Laul saw the addition of a Quarterfinal round, the first of which will took place last Saturday.
The 10 participants are:
- An-Marlen – Lõpuks muutub
- Andrei Zevakin feat. Grete Paia – Mis nüüd saab
- Desiree – Siiani
- Frants Tikerpuu and Triin Niitoja – Laululind

- Kaia-Liisa Kesler – Vaikus
- Meisterjaan – Vahel lilhtsalt
- Silver Jusilo – Elu rüpes

All ten entries of this quarter-final will be in Estonian. That is the first time for any show of the Estonian national final to not have an English song since 1998. That specific year, was the last time the language rule was in use in Eurovision!
