Pop the champagne, crank up your wind machine and get ready to vote, because it is game on in Finland. Eighteen acts competed in the semi-finals of Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu (UMK) 2016 — Finland’s national selection for Eurovision — and nine acts have made it to the February 27 final. They will sing-to-the-death with the winner decided by a televote and ten juries made of different Finnish groups. Those juries have not yet been revealed, but last year they included juries of Eurovision fans and cab drivers. Finland is quirky, y’all….
Even though all of you non-Finns won’t have an impact on the actual winner, you can voice your opinion in our poll. Vote for your favourite(s) by clicking the box next to their name(s). You can vote for as many songs as you like, but you can only vote one time. We will go through the results before Saturday’s final.
