After three weeks of UMK semi-finals — and more than a few upsets — Finland has tonight chosen its representative for Vienna. Following a combination of 90% televote and 10% national jury vote, we now know that PERTTI KURIKAN NIMIPÄIVÄT will sing “Aina mun pitää” at Eurovision 2015!
The show itself was remarkable. Finnish contestants of yesteryear, including Softengine (2014), Hanna Pakarinen (2007) and Fredi (1967, 1976), took the stage. Jon Ola Sand — the head honcho of Eurovision — also appeared, wishing all the best to contestants and inviting everybody to Vienna to build bridges.
