Meet the Swedish singer hoping to whip up a Storm at Eurovision for Estonia

Eurovision Estonia

Never expect an average song from Estonia at Eurovision: every year since 2000 their entry has either achieved a top 10 place or failed spectacularly, finishing just off the bottom of the table or failing to qualify at all.

So, judging by the country’s Eurovision history, Estonia’s 2019 act Victor Crone will do brilliantly or become a massive flop on the biggest stage of all. In other words, he’ll be worth a watch.

What is Estonia’s Eurovision 2019 song called?

Victor Crone will perform Storm, a song that coincidentally shares the same name as SuRie’s entry from the UK in 2018.

It fought off 24 other songs in Estonia’s national selection process.

What will Estonia’s Eurovision 2019 song look like on stage?

Crone’s appearance at the Estonian national finals gives us an insight. The performance saw Crone playing the guitar, jumping around on stage and giving a fair few smouldering looks to the camera.

His rehearsal video looks pretty similar, but the graphics have been replaced by what looks like Microsoft PowerPoint transitions. And we’re all here for it.

What are the odds of Estonia winning Eurovision 2019?

Crone is predicted to make the grand final but then completely bomb on Saturday, finishing in 25th place.

How did Estonia do at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest?

Although one of the favourites to win the contest, Elina Nechayeva’s performance of La Forza, which included a dress covered by spectacular graphics, came eighth.
