Tomi Rahula, the Head of Delegation for Estonia has given hints regarding what to expect from the nations performance in Tel Aviv.
Speaking to Delfi, Mr Rahula explained that the staging of Victor Crone’s performance at Eurovision 2019 will remain similar to what was seen on stage at Eesti Laul. The performance saw Victor merge in and out of a video, where Victor is on a stone plinth in the middle of a storm.
The Head of Delegation went on to explain that while the staging will remain same that it will also evolve for the contest in May. He commented:
We still have thoughts in the same direction, and the stage will go on the same topic, but we want to improve and improve it
Mr Rahula also explained that postcard filming for Victor Crone will be taking place in April. The singer was due to travel to Israel at the start of March, however due to poor weather his video shoot has been delayed.
Who is Victor Crone?
Victor Crone is from the north of Stockholm, and first came to the public attention in 2015. He attempted to represent Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2015 alongside Behrang Miri with “Det rår vi inte för” but was knocked out in the Andra Chansen round.
In 2019 he entered Eesti Laul after ERR allowed international singers perform in the contest again. Victor will be performing the song “Storm” which was written by Stig Rästa, Vallo Kikas and himself.
Estonia debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994 alongside six other countries. At the contest in Dublin they were represented by Silvi Vrait, who finished 2nd last scoring just 2 points. In 2001 Estonia won the Eurovision Song Contest for the only time to date. They were represented by Tanel Padar, Dave Benton & 2XL, who performed the song “Everybody” and took a surprise victory in Copenhagen. After the success of the late-90s and early 00s, Estonia failed to qualify for the final from 2004-2008. In 2009 Estonia launched a new selection show, Eesti Laul, and has since qualified for the final six out of ten attempts.
