Preview: Finland’s Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu Final
Saturday’s Nordic extravaganza continues with the Final of Finland’s Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu, or “New Music Competition”. YLE has shown a number of introductory programs, semifinals, and a “second chance” round, which narrowed twelve songs down to eight. Seems a bit inefficient in terms of winnowing down the list of finalists, but it really helped to familiarize the public with the songs that could potentially represent Finland in Malmö this spring.
In their running order, the Finalists are:
- Arion – “Lost“
- Elina Orkoneva – “He’s Not My Man“
- Lucy Was Driving – “Dancing All Around The Universe“
- Krista Siegfrids – “Marry Me“
- Last Panda – “Saturday Night Forever“
- Mikael Saari – “We Should Be Through“
- Great Wide North – “Flags“
- Diandra – “Colliding Into You“
The winner will be chosen by a simple 50/50 jury/televote split, with no superfinal. All indications show that it is likely to be a closely-fought contest, so be sure to watch! The show starts at 19:25 CET, and will be streamed at Eurovision.tv.
