Finland is using a new method this year to pick their Eurovision Song Contest entry. It is a contest for new music or as their broadcaster YLE has called it, UMK.
Last week the 12 participants were revealed and tonight, after performing live in front of the jury, four of them went through (in bold):
- Jari & Taika
- Mica Ikonen
- Pernilla Karlsson
- Kirahvi nimeltä Tuike
