Grete Kuld is an iconic Estonian singer, actress and TV presenter, and is also a very notable public figure in Estonia.

Tõnis Niinemets and Grete Kuld will bring their expertise & experience together as hosts for what will be a very exciting Eesti Laul 2024. Recent news of Eesti Laul’s 20 finalists for the 2024 edition have certainly built the excitement and anticipation among fans in the Eurovision community.

According to ERR, the Eesti Laul 2024 songs will be broadcast for the very first time on December 8th. 15 songs will take part in the Semi-final that will be held in Tartu on January 20th, five of which will qualify for the Grand Final which will take place in Tallinn on February 17th. They will also be joined by five more pre-qualified songs, who will all then sing their hearts out in hopes of being chosen to represent their country next May in Sweden.

Tõnis Niinemets expressed his excitement about next year’s Eesti Laul in a recent interview saying, “For me, Eesti Laul is like Christmas or my birthday. This time of the year I look forward to even more excitedly than summer. And it’s especially nice that I can go to Tartu again this year!”

All of the hopeful candidates for Eesti Laul 2024 will be wishing for the same success as this year’s Estonian representative in Liverpool. Of course, Estonia was represented by the incredible Alika with her song “Bridges”. Alika was somewhat of a ‘dark horse’ at this year’s contest, placing 8th in the Grand Final with 168 points overall.
