Still in the summer of 2011 Finland announced that a new system was taking shape to choose their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest, and the Contest For New Music (Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu - UMK) was born.
Since then we've been following how this number of "new musics" was narrowed from 540 to the final six. Yesterday saw the final eviction of UMK. One act had to leave the competition only one day before the final, and the unlucky ones were Freeman & Uusi Fantasia performing Noitanainen.
Remaining in the final was a very relieved Kaisa Vala and her Habits Of Human Beings. That made the final line-up look like this (click to watch a video performance):

And tonight, the final of UMK (Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu), the Finnish national selection for the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest, takes place at the Helsinki Ice Hall. Presented by Joona Kortesmäki & Anne Lainto, the show starts at 20:00 CET, and you can follow it on the webcast provided by the Finnish broadcaster, YLE. Special guest stars include The Rasmus and Anna Abreu.
The Finnish performer at the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest, Paradise Oskar, completes the list of guest performers of the show. In Düsseldorf he placed 21st in the Final with his own Da Da Dam.
Finland takes part in the first semi-final in Baku on the 22nd of May.
