"Partners In Crime" was the Estonian entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 2007, composed by Henrik Sal-Saller and written by Berit Veiber and sung in English by Gerli Padar.

More than for the song, the media attention on the Estonian delegation was for the fact that Gerli's brother, Tanel Padar, had won the Eurovision Song Contest a few years before. In a number of interviews and press conferences, Gerli was asked to comment on the matter.

On the night of the semi-final of the contest the song was performed 23rd (following Hungary's Magdi Rúzsa with "Unsubstantial Blues" and preceding Belgium's The KMG's with "Love Power"). At the close of the voting it had received 33 points, placing 22nd of 28 countries competing, failing to pass to the final.

Gerli Padar was supported on stage by two backing singers Johanna Münter and Mirjam Mesak, and three male dancers with whom Gerli danced throughout the song.

The song was succeeded as Estonian representative at the 2008 contest by Kreisiraadio with "Leto svet".
