Everybody was the Estonian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2001 performed by Tanel Padar and Dave Benton backed by the male quartet 2XL. It is a high-energy song reminiscent of call-and-response chants as an invitation to a party where "every night's a Friday night".

At the contest, it was performed twentieth, following Germany and preceding Malta. At the close of voting, it was the winner with 198 points, earning 9 sets of 12-point scores and receiving 75% of the total vote available.

With the victory, Estonia got its first win, becoming the first of the ex-Soviet states to win the contest as well as the first new winning nation since the former Yugoslavia in 1989. It also put Dave Benton in the history books as the first black artist to win at Eurovision.

Lyrics

All right - Hey hey...
Well, are you ready? - You bet
But are you ready? - Oh yeah
All right - You give it to them now

Well, every night's a Friday night - Aha... what night?
Ladies, this sure feels right - I guess this is party time
The two of us will sing again - Two of us together again
The heart is young and we know when - Young and handsome, they say
Come on, Dave

To kick the sadness out the door - To kick the sadness out the door
And roll the carpet from the floor - Haha... carpet from the floor, yeah
Let the spirit hit the roof - I hit the roof, I hit the roof
The two of us still know the moves

And not even time can take away
The starlight from us, no, it won't fade
Still we believe that we were made to laugh and sing

Come on, everybody, let's sing along
And feel the power of a song
Come on, everybody, let's feel the spark
That always stays within our hearts
Come on, everybody, and let it out
And live the moment, here and now
Come on, everybody, 'cause here's a chance
To feel so light, to laugh and dance

A little rollercoaster ride - He's goin' for a ride now
Right into the starry night - Around and around and around we go
And leave the windows open wide - Why nobody can't stay?
And let the music pour inside - Aha...

Not even time can take away
The starlight from us, no, it won't fade
Still we believe that we were made to laugh and sing

Come on, everybody, let's sing along
And feel the power of a song
Come on, everybody, let's feel the spark
That always stays within our hearts
Come on, everybody, and let it out
And live the moment, here and now
Come on, everybody, 'cause here's a chance
To feel so light, to laugh and dance

Look at us now here together again
We started out long time ago - We knew back then
The music within us could never, could never end
All right

Oh yeah... - Let's sing along
Y'all come on - Come on, everybody
Come on, come on - Na na na na yeah yeah...
Come on, come on - One more time, yeah

Come on, everybody, let's sing along
And feel the power of a song
Come on, everybody, let's feel the spark
That always stays within our hearts
Come on, everybody, and let it out
And live the moment, here and now
Come on, everybody, 'cause here's a chance
To feel so light, to laugh and dance

Come on, everybody, let's sing along
