Almost two months after the submission period ended, Finland’s UMK team have finally made their decisions about the artists who will compete to become Finland’s Eurovision representative. Sadly, we don’t know these lucky artists yet, as the press confence and artists reveal will take place in January 2015.
The liveshows of UMK 2015 will start in February and Finland’s Eurovision 2015 entry will be selected in March. As we previously reported, the song will be chosen completely by the Finnish public.
The upcoming season will be the fourth edition of UMK (Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu), which has produced two Eurovision finalists for this unlucky country. The winner of UMK 2014, Softengine, achieved Finland’s best placement in the contest since Lordi’s victory.
We have already chosen the 10 artists who we would like to see competing in UMK 2015. Who do you want to see among the contestants? Tell us in the comments section below!
