Tonight Finland decided the last three finalists for the Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu (UMK) 2015, their national selection for Eurovision 2015. The final three spots went to to wiwibloggs readers’ favourite Solju with “Hold Your Colours“, Järjestyshäiriö with “Särkyneiden Sydänten Kulmilla” and Angelo De Nile with “All for Victory“.
That of course means we won’t see Wiwi Jury favourite Ida Bois with “Kumbaya“, Aikuinen with “Kyynelten lahti” and Heidi Pakarinen with “Bon Voyage” in the final next Saturday, when nine acts will fight for the right to represent Finland in Vienna next May.

I pray for Opera Skaala’s win but I’m afraid it is too artistic for my fellow countrymen! 🙁
Solju: Best song in the selection. The live vocals really could use some work, though. Still, really pleased that they got through. Aikuinen: I like this quirky little song, but no surprise that it didn’t make it. Was he lipsyncing during the chorus? It certainly seemed like it! Ida Bois: Not a bad song, but she sure seemed shy on stage. The swingset seemed random, but I can’t understand the Finnish lyrics, so I’m not sure. Angelo de Nile: Well, this guy’s serious. Was this originally written for the movie 300 or something? He could win the final just on… Read more »
I agree with the results from this semifinal, although the band with the weird name bored me to tears. Ida’s vocals were very weak and the staging was just lazy, the estonian girls rocked the swing set way better tbh.
Solju had a lovely performance, but I wanted to see more colours, ala the guy who came right after them lol.
Did anyone else find the gay version of Hard Rock Hallelujah even more hilarious than Angelo’s performance? cause I did.
Jouni Aslak for the Win
Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät will win in Finland, on betting odds they are on first place
This is the most “unique” final line-up ever. I like it, very diverse.
For me it has to be “Crossroads”. Estonia and Iceland have ruining it by sending another “mm okay” songs which they could’ve sent something better. Hope Finland and Norway will not make that same mistake.
2. SIRU (eliminated)
3. IDA BOIS (eliminated)
OPERA SKAALA, being my favorite from the beginning, should win UMK!!!!
Aikuinen’s song was so ridiculous but I liked it. Don’t judge me.
Crossroads and Opera Skaala are my favourites but Crossroads doesn’t sound good live and Opera Skaala should change her outfit because all of that looks slightly exaggerating.
Hold Your Colours is interesting but it continuously fails to impress me after listening to it.
So none of the finalists satisfy me completely. Bring back Siru please,she will change her choreography in Vienna…aaa *cries*
I respect that guys, but I really hope them not to win.Crossroads for me.Btw what a weird final, featuring also Norlan “the finnish” misionario.
Good qualifiers I think.
Hopefully Opera Skaala wins next week. I like Satin Circus but the live performances are just DIRE
So sorry for Aikuinen and Ida Bois 🙁 Both had very catchy and nice songs.
But I am happy for those who passed too.
Now, my favorite finalists would be Opera Skaala and Angelo de Nile, but I like Satin Circus, Solju too.
Only Satin Circus to save Finland…
Expected results really…
The fact that Ida Bois did not pass to the final after all does not really surprise me..
I really can’t predict at all about the actual possible winner on the final of UMK..
We might see the hot favorites 4 the victory to lose..
And we might see the dark horses or even the total outsiders to win instead..
Its going to be unpredictable to guess especially in a country’s NF like FINLAND so i rest my case here..
Opera Skaala to win.
Whoo! Angelo de Nile made it through! this is great!
Ida Bois 🙁 Hope Opera Skaala wins it!
Happy for Solju!! Let’s hope Satin Circus win next Saturday…!!
Its between Satin Circus and Opera Skaala now!! Solju will probably come third! Hopefully OPERA SKAALA will win!!! She definitely should win!!! OPERA SKAALA FOR THE WIN!!!!!!!!
happy for Järjestyshäirö and Solju
I kind of want one of them to win it all
Norlan for the win! Lol
Thank goodness Aikuinen didn’t make it.
