Estonia | Stig Rästa Will Be A Backing Vocalist For Victor Crone
Stig Rästa, who sang "Goodbye To Yesterday" for Estonia in Eurovision 2015 alongside Elina Born has been confirmed as being one of the backing singers for Victor Crone in Tel Aviv. Stig will be joined on stage by three other Estonian singers.
Kaido Põldma, who is a member of Soul Militia (formerly 2XL), provided backing vocals for Dave Benton and Tanel Padar who went on to win Eurovision 2001 with their song "Everybody".
Dagmar Oja has been to Eurovision as a backing singer on four occasions, only three of which were for Estonian singers. She was a backing singer for Sandra Oxenryd in 2006 with her song "Through My Window" and returned to Eurovision 2016 with Jüri Pootsmann and again in 2017 with Koit Toome & Laura. In 2002, she was a backing singer for Ira Losco with her song "7th Wonder".
Kaire Vilgats is the final backing singer for Victor and she has previously supported Ines in Eurovision 2000 with her song "Once In A Lifetime" and Tanja in 2014. She also joined Dagmar Oja as a backing singer for Ira Losco in 2002.
Saara Kadak, who featured in Victor's performances in Eesti Laul was initially speculated to be joining Victor in Tel Aviv, but Estonian newspaper Õhtuleht appears to have confirmed she will not be in Tel Aviv, with Estonian musician Tomi Rahula saying "Saara Kadak will not travel with us to Eurovision... This information has come from the song's authors. Maybe she's getting married? I've heard this marriage talk, but I can't confirm it, it's like an urban legend"
