Hanna Sky has won the second heat of Finland’s #umk14. Part blonde druid, part Greek goddess, she owned the stage with her number “Hope.” She introduced a crazy back-up dancer who seems to have escaped from Cirque du Soleil: dude would not stop spinning and looked like a dog chasing his own tail. But in the end her music won the day—and a spot in the final.
Officials at YLE have not released the results of the public vote, but we know that Hanna won the jury vote. She narrowly edged out Mikko Pohjola by four points. The gap widened after that. Lauri Mikkola was third with the jury with 26 points, followed by Clarissa and Josh Standing with 25 points and Madcraft with 21.
MAKEA came last with the jury, so will be headed home this evening. Apparently Finland wasn’t feeling them or their song “Painovoima”. They also finished last with our in-house panel of music unprofessionals.
1. Hanna Sky – 38 points
2. Mikko Pohjola – 34 points
