Eurovision Flashback 2004 Estonia with Neiokõsõ
It was a very disappointing Eurovision for 2019 and it wasn't just because Estonia scored badly (the worst in years) but because the overall quality of the songs was very poor. There were so many forgettable numbers and nothing stood out or had the 'wow' factor, even special guest Madonna sang flat at times with her hit Like a Prayer. The Netherlands won this year's Eurovision Song Contest with 492 points. Estonia was 19th place with 86 points.
Over the years Estonia has produced some really good Eurovision entries and I must admit I completely forgot about Neiokõsõ from 2004. Folk music doesn't appeal to everyone and putting forward such a song at Eurovision can be a risky endeavour but it's always worth a try!
