Tonight, the Finnish public will decide which three songs from the second semi-final will qualify for the final of UMK 2016, the country’s Eurovision selection. Even though most of you aren’t in Finland this evening, you still had a chance to share your opinion when we asked you who should qualify from the second heat. Now it’s time to go through the results.
After a very close vote, Mikael Saari is the act you want to win the second heat of UMK 2016. Mikael finished second in Finland’s national selection back in 2013 and now he’s ready to grab the gold medal. His song “On It Goes” picked up got 24.23% of all votes cast.

Missing out on the top spot by just two votes, it’s Annica Milán & Kimmo Blom. The pair are also the Wiwi Jury’s favourites from tonight’s semifinal. Their song “Good Enough” received 24.08% of all the votes cast.
The last song which our readers think should qualify comes from Ylona. She might be a new star on the Finnish music scene, but she already has a legion of fans supporting her. “Blazing Fire” picked up 19.77% of all the votes cast.

Based on the poll, Rafaela Truda, Cristal Snow and Attention 2 would have to say good bye to their Eurovision dreams — for now anyway.
