Uku Suviste has once again won the grand final of Eesti Laul. The two years in a row and will represent Estonia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam. The Estonian entry is called The Lucky One.

In line with Victor Crone in 2019, Estonia will rely heavily on visual effects in its performance. During the first verse of the upbeat pop song, it appears as though Uku falls in a water tank. However, we soon see him back on stage, dry, continuing to sing his song.
