Following PKN’s last-place finish in the semi finals at Eurovision 2015, Finnish broadcaster YLE is hoping to get back in the game in Stockholm. Eighteen acts will compete in Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu (UMK) 2016, but only six will advance to the final on February 27. We’ve already asked you to choose your favourites in the first semi-final, and today we turn to the six acts competing in the second semi on February 13.

Among them is Annica Milan & Kimmo Blom, who serve a romantic duet with major chemistry; Attention 2, a pair of acid-blonde twins with an uplifting song about loving your flaws; Cristal Snow, a radio personality with an edgy love song; Mikael Saari, a UMK veteran who croons about matters of the heart; Rafaela Truda, a sassy starlet throwing down her unique blend of pop, R&B and soul; and Ylona, an electro queen who gives us her take on an inspirational pop ballad.

Who do you want to see in the final? Review the songs and then vote in our poll below. You can vote for as many acts as you’d like, but you can only vote ONE time, so make it count.

ANNICA MILÁN & KIMMO BLOM – GOOD ENOUGH

ATTENTION 2 – READY FOR THE SHOW

CRISTAL SNOW – LOVE IS BLIND

MIKAEL SAARI – ON IT GOES

RAFAELA TRUDA – RISE UP

YLONA – BLAZING FIRE

I kinda like all songs in this semi except ”love is blind”. I hope ”on it goes”, ”good enough” and ”Blazing fire” go through to the final. Really good selections for scandinavia (except for Iceland).

1. On it goes
2. Blazing Fire
3. Good enough
4. Rise up
5. Ready for the show
6. Love is blind

I think these should be the passing 3:

Mikael Saari: On It Goes
Annica & Kimmo: Good Enough
Cristal Snow: Love is Blind

Love is blind keeps going on in my head.

If they bring the video influence for the staging I’ll be happy too. The video has amazing imagery. Nice work and deserves credit.

Love is Blind has somehow become my favorite and I just can’t explain it. But On it Goes is also growing on me! I want either of those to advance!

Attention 2 girls are really over sixteen?

Their song would have won the Junior Eurovision!

*Mikael Saari sorry – think I must have Opera Skaala on my mind 😉

For me, this is easily the weakest 😛

I went with Mikael Skaari immediately, the second… I guess Annica Milan and Kimmo Blom, it’s grown on me. It’s not exactly a great song, but it’s enjoyable enough as a radio love duet, and actually should do well on stage which could be a big edge.

Originally I wanted Attention2 to get through but that’s now up in the air; Rafaela’s song has been getting lots of plagiarism accusations against it but I think it still makes my third spot.

Semi 2 is easily the strongest semi, and I think that 5 out of the 6 entries deserve to qualify! (Except for Attention 2) My top would be:
1- Annica Milan & Kimmo Blom
2- Ylona
3- Mikael Saari
4- Rafaela Truda
5- Cristal Snow
6- Attention 2

Quite hard to decide, because I do like/love all of these songs. But my top would have to look like this: 1) Good Enough – My #1 in the whole of UMK. It is just fantabulous! Just hope their voices will work as well together on stage as it does in the studio version. 2) Rise Up – While very similar to Ariana, look at how successful Heroes was. I feel that this is better (for me at least) because it makes me happier when listening to it. #Addictive 🙂 3) Love Is Blind – It’s Cristal Snow, he will… Read more »

Annica & Kimmo are the clear winners of this semi, reminds me of Estonia last year (although more upbeat). Rafaela would also do well in Stockholm.

1)good enough- great song but be careful of the staging
2)rise up- its not a rip-off if you do right and di it your own way
3)love is blind- he know the demographic
4)ready of the show- very JESC
5) blazing fire- her heart is not in the song. the words are so empty in her mouth
6) on it goes – meh, could qualify

Annica & Kimmo will hopefully take this song! Great song. Cristal Snow has a song even though the lyrics are such a clusterplop <3 3rd Rafaela Truda but I can see Mikael going through even though I really do not like his song. It's extremely dated and just doesn't have the oomph for me to even make a connection to the song

Annica & Kimmo all the way for me! With Mikael in a close second place. I was a sucker for Denmark’s entry in 2010 and good enough is bringing me those same vibes!

I really hope Annica & Kimmo win it all. The song is just so good <3 As for Rafaela Truda however, I hope her and her Ariana Grande / Iggy Azalea rip-off crash out

For me
1. Annica Milán & Kimmo Blom – “Good Enough”
2.Cristal Snow – “Love is Blind”
3. Attention 2 – “Ready for the Show” or Mikael Saari – “On it Goes

Mikael and Ylona are the only ones I like. Annica & Kimmo are okay, and the other three I despise. Cristal Snow probably has my least favourite song in the whole selection.
