Victor Crone has released an acoustic version of his Eurovision entry alongside Stig Rästa.
Ahead of the first semi-final of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest tonight, Estonia’s Victor Crone has released an acoustic version of his song “Storm”, which he has performed alongside Stig Rästa. Stig co-wrote the entry, and will feature as one of the backing singers tonight.
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.
