The Eurovision Song Contest 1994 was the second time that Estonia had attempted to enter the contest, having failed to qualify from the semi-final stage of the Eurovision Song Contest 1993. The pre-selection process featured multiple artists for the first time, with Silvi Vrait's "Nagu merelaine" being selected by the judging panel to represent the nation in Ireland. In the contest, however, Vrait would place 24th second and last, receiving only two points in the scoring process and only beating fellow BalticnationLithuania.
The 1994 preselections took place in Tallinn, Estonia on February 26, 1994, and were hosted by Reet Oja and Guido Kangur. Unlike the previous year, multiple artists entered the preselection show, with ten different songs featured. Pearu Paulus would perform two songs, with Evelin Samuel performing three. Paulus and Hedvig Hanson's "Kallim kullast" would ultimately be edged out narrowly by Silvi Vrait's "Nagu merelaine", with Vrait winning the competition and earning the right to represent Estonia in Dublin.
Having automatically qualified for the final, Silvi Vrait gone straight to the Eurovision Song Contest 1994 in Dublin, Ireland. Her appearance would be Estonia's first ever in the finals, but the results would ultimately be disappointing, with Vrait placing second last and scoring only two points, which came from Greece). The result would mean Estonia missed out on participation for the 1995 contest.
