Just last year, during ECD2017, Estonian-born artists Ott Lepland (ESC2012) and Tanja (ESC2014) gave us a joint intimate concert and brought a bit of Eurovision to the Big Apple
Ott Lepland participated at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2012. Ott Lepland qualified Estonia to the final with his song "Kuula", ending up 4th in the second semi-final. In the final, he equalled Estonia's result of 1999 and 2009, ending up 6th. Together with "Urban Symphony" in 2009, "Kuula" gave Estonia its best result in the contest since 2009.
