Nightlight Duo
In the 00's Tanja was a member of Nightlight Duo (with Ly Lumiste). The duo entered the Estonian selection twice. In 2002 Another Country Song (with Cowboys)  finished 2nd, in 2003 I Can B The 1 ended 4th.
In 2012 she released her solo album Gemini.

More Estonia
Estonia has reached the final four out of five times since 2009. Two 6th places were scored by songs in Estonian: Rändajad by Urban Symphony (2009) and Kuula by Ott Lepland. Rändajad ended a string of five failures. Kuula was also covered in Dutch and that became a chart hit in the Netherlands.
Last years Et Uus Saaks Alguse by Birgit Õigemeel made it to #20.
Still, the English language songs didn't do as well. Rockefeller Street by Getter Jaani was 24th in 2011 and Malcolm Lincolns Siren failed to reach the final.
