The first of three Semi Final will take place on the 14th of January, and the last two ones on the 21st and 28th of January respectively.
The Grand Final will be held in the Caribia Hall in Turku on the 12th of February.
There will be five acts in each Semi Final. Three of them will qualify directly for the Final. The direct qualifiers (nine in total) will be decided by televoting and SMS-voting.
The tenth finalist will be decided by a jury. So called “wild card” will be given to one of the six acts that did not qualify directly for the Final.
Only sms- and televote in the Grand Final
In the Final the qualifiers and the winner will be decided solely by televoting and SMS-voting. There will be two rounds of voting in the Final. In the first round the three most popular songs will proceed to the second round (the so-called Super Final). The last battle will be between those three songs, and the winner of the Super Final will represent Finland in Düsseldorf.
The Finnish selection will be presented by Jaana Pelkonen and Tom Nylund.
The Semi Finals and the Grand Final will be broadcast live on YLE TV2. Webstreaming will be available worldwide.
