satin circus should go!!! a modern, catchy, flawless song that will appeal to everybody
opera skaala is terrible,sorry but it’s just awful really…
Crossroads should win but they should improve the live performance.
Crossroads is so bad it isn’t even funny. My favorite is definitely Opera Skaala all the way. Heart of Light must win!
It’s not the Sami language (do you mean the part that the mother sings?), but it is joiking, which is in the Sami tradition. It’s like mouth music with just sounds and not words.
Opera Skaala have been the clear winner for me since the first time I heard it, but I didn’t think they *could* win until now.
Opera Skalaa, of course! The rest is simply CRAP compared to this artistic geniousity. It’s perfect for Vienna of all places, a quirky mix of baroque aria, coloratura vocals and EDM sounds. Unfortunately I’m afraid this stupid country will send something else. 🙁
Opera Skaala all the way!! <3
It's like Malena Ernman meets Cezar, just EVEN BETTER!
Opera Skaala is the one too root for. There were some opera-pop crossovers before, not doing terribly well, but those were usually simple pop songs sung by an opera singer. (Cezar comes to mind). This is a “traditional” opera piece with the most stereotypical melody ever, and that is why this works much better than those before. This song is greatly enjoyable AND memorable, which is usually what you’re looking for in a Eurovision winner. Knowing the audience there is a slight chance they wouldn’t even get to the finals, but there’s also a chance that they win it, simply… Read more »
Siru and Eeverest were my favourites but after watching their performance I totally see why they aren’t in the final. Both of them looked so awkward on stage. I’m really sad for Siru because people should have focused on singing because staging can actually change but the song remains the same. What a pity 🙁
So my new favourites are Satin Circus and Opera Skaala.
If either of those songs go that is.
Now Siru is gone it has to be Solju but I can manage Opera Skaala if she goes because either way Finland will be inevitably my favourite.
OPERA SKAALA FOR FINLAND!!!! ??????????????????????
I like Satin Circus but their live performance was pretty dreadful. The eurovision audience won’t care who they are outside of maybe…Scandinavia. Opera Skaala delivers live. That said I still feel like All for victory is going through on Saturday
OPERA SKAALA imagine that on the eurovision stage <3
Is Solju’s song partially in Sami?
because if so I’m totally rooting for them
linguistic diversity > everything
Please send Angelo di Niro, Shava or Solju Finland 😀
I really hope Finland will send ‘Crossroads’! It sounds so modern and the song could be in the top3! I really like it! Please Finland send this!
Opera Skaala are catching up! 🙂
Solju or Opera Skaala are the ones who deserve to be going to Vienna :3
Opera Skaala, by far.
Solju or Opera Skaala to Vienna please. PKN or Satin Circus will probably go but I LOVE Solju and Opera Skaala. After watching the performance , I understand why Siru is out but I do think that she should still be in the final of UMK. I really feel like as though countries are really screwing up this year.
Finland’s really screwing themselves over this year. They had a weak line-up to begin with but now they’re eliminating all their somewhat respectable songs. I’d be surprised if Solju and Järjestyshäiriö make it through to the final considering they’re their last chances.
