Tomorrow the third — and last — semifinal of Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu 2016 takes place in Helsinki, Finland. Six artists will sing for three places in the final on February 27. Whether you have a Finnish phone number or not, you could pick your favourites in our poll. Now it’s time to go through the results.

Your three favourite songs were very clear. Tuuli Okkonen came out on top with her song “Don’t Wake Me Up“. Tuuli impressed wiwibloggs readers with her beautiful voice and touching lyrics. She collected total of 29.82% of the 502 votes cast.

In second place is Sandhja with her energetic and positive “Sing It Away”. Sandhja got critics behind her with her debut album “Gold”, but is still somewhat unknown to a mainstream audience. Maybe she will get her big breakthrough from Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu!

The last act you want to qualify from the third heat is Barbe-Q-Barbies. In the past Finland has sent hard rock, heavy metal and punk — but all performed by men. Is it time for them to send rock performed by strong women?

This means that according to the poll results, Gušani Brothers, Lieminen and Pietarin Spektaakkeli won’t qualify from the third heat.

Who should qualify from the third UMK semi-final? (Poll results)

1. Tuuli Okkonen – “Don’t Wake Me Up” 29.82% (150 votes)
2. Sandhja – “Sing It Away” 24.45% (123 votes)
3. Barbe-Q-Barbies – “Let Me Out” 21.47% (108 votes)
4. Gušani Brothers – “Poom Poom” 12.72% (64 votes)
5. Lieminen – “Pehmeiden Arvojen Vaalijat” 7.36% (37 votes)
6. Pietarin Spektaakkeli – “Liian Kuuma” 4.17% (21 votes)

Total Votes: 503

For me Sandhja and Barbe-Q-Barbies are the best in this semi-final. Tuuli is decent but rather bland. She represents something what for me is typical in DMGP.

Another decent Semi from Finland, well done.

It’s a 100% Televote and the Finns like their rock, so Barbe-Q-Barbies might finish on top and they have a good draw 4th, definitely through to the final.

However I hope Sandhja is the one to be called out first, that chorus is pure gold. She gets the “pimp spot” from the producers and should get through too.

For the 3rd spot I’m going for Lieminen over Tuuli.

So perhaps Tuuli, Gusani and Pietarin to go home?

For the third time my favorite UMK 2016 song is poll’s favorite too. Will this one pass the finals as well? Hope so. With Tuuli Finland would complete the great finals line-up.

Yes, Tuuli is my fave, too! Let’s hope she can sing as well live as in her video. 🙂

Those Barbies gotta get through! Don’t care much about the other two spots.

I hope Denmark will replace Lighthouse for Anja Nissen, because this is only chance for top 5. There is still time!
