Gerli Padar (born 6 November 1979 in Haljala, Estonia) is a popular female performing artist in Estonia.

Gerli's television appearances include, most notably, her having represented Estonia at the ever-popular Eurovision trans-national talent contest as well as having performed on Dancing with the Stars.

Gerli has also performed live—to critical acclaim—in several hit Estonian musicals including her starring roles as Sally in Cabaret, as Florence in Chess and as Lotte in Lotte, the Detective. As of 2011, she has released one solo album.

Padar represented Estonia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 with the song "Partners in Crime". It failed to qualify for the final but was otherwise well received in the semi-final round. She is the sister of Tanel Padar, who won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2001 for Estonia.

In 2018, she competed in Eesti Laul 2018 together with Eliis Pärna with the song Taevas (performed in the semifinal in English as "Sky"), which came last in the final.[1]
