The heat was on as six artists took to the stage in Helsinki and sang for just three spots in the UMK 2016 final on February 27. We saw Attention 2 on rollerskates, Wiwi Jury favourites Annica Milán & Kimmo Blom interacting through mirrors and Ylona breaking out of a cage.
Krista Siegfrids, who was absent due to her Melodifestivalen commitments, even made an appearance — with pre-recorded clips. Then it was time for the Finnish people to vote and while we waited for the results, we saw teen idol Robin performing mash-up of Finland’s 1980 entry “Huilumies” and his latest hit “Miten eskimot suutelee?“, showing why he is one of the biggest pop stars in the country.
In the end Finland decided to send Cristal Snow, Mikael Saari and Annica Milán & Kimmo Blom to the grand final. Sadly we had to say goodbye to Attention 2, Ylona and Rafaela Truda. This reflects Wiwi Jury results while two of your dream qualifiers made it.
