UMK 2016: Who should qualify from the first semi-final?

Finland’s state broadcaster YLE has revealed the 18 songs that will compete in Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu (UMK) 2016, its national selection for Eurovision. The final takes place on February 27, but before that we get to indulge in three semi-finals, the first of which takes place on February 6. Six acts will battle for the first three spots in the final.

Among them is Clemso, a Nigerian-born singer serving afro-beat realness; Eini, a disco queen with the humorously named track “Draamaa”; Mikko Herranen, who knows how to dish out cheese; Pää-Äijät, who wants to tell you about their “Champagne Heaven”; Saara Aalto, who melds dance pop with Oriental sounds; and Stella Christine, a young upstart who “Ain’t Got Time For Boys”.

But who is your favourite to advance? You can vote for as many acts as you’d like, but you can only vote ONE time, so make it count. It’s up to you Europe. Start voting now!
