@george. I’ll be very happy if he proves me wrong when it counts.

Oh, the kid’s voice is ready! Arion to Malmo!!! The others are just dull or “let’s be happy” sad song.

Mikael Saari FTW!! “We Should Be Through” is such a wonderfully constructed ballad. If Finland choose Krista’s horrible act over this, I will cry…

Looks like I’m sticking with the herd on this one 🙂
I was hoping to support Arion as well, but the kid’s voice isn’t ready for it. Maybe next year, or the one after.
