On 19 October, Estonian national broadcaster announced the kick off of Eesti Laul 2011 through which the country will select the 2011 Eurovision entry and singer. The show will take place in February and will have two semi-finals with ten songs each. Five from each semi-final will advance to the final. The 20 songs for the semi-finals will be decided by a jury and the ten to the final will come out from jury and televoting. In the final there will be a second part between two super finalists the winner of which will be decided by 100% televoting.[1][2] Like in 2010, the show will be hosted by Ott Sepp & Märt Avandi.[3] On 13 December, ERR announced that they received 140 songs, 15 fewer than 2010.[4]

On 20 December, ERR announced that Janne Saar has been disqualified because her song "Meeting the Wolf" was published before 1 September. Tiiu Kiik, who already participated in Eesti Laul 2010, fills the gap with the entry "Second chance".[5]

Just three Days later, ERR announced that the song "Ilusad inimesed" from Laika Virgin feat. Fredy Schmidt is also disqualified because it was published before 1 September. It was replaced by Meister ja Mari with their song "Unemati".[6]

These are the 20 semi-final songs:[7]
