Finland’s Sandhja returned to Globen today for her second rehearsal. And it was improvements all round for the “Sing It Away” singer.

Despite talk of a new outfit, it looks like Sandhja stuck with the blue jumpsuit from her first rehearsal. At this stage, it may well be the enesemble she wears during her semi-final one performance. She’s giving us some caramel obliques with an open back and a slicked side part. Delicious!

Sandhja’s interaction with her backing vocalists has improved in spades. The entire Finnish team appear more comfortable and confident which is great to see.

Do you think Finland can return to the final after last year’s misstep? Let us know in the comments below.

So many sure voices of prediction while much depends on how the others perform in the 1st semi-final. I think Sandhja will stand out, in a very good way!

I really like this song. Maybe Finland and San Marino inspire a return of disco 🙂

Her backing singers should go all out psychedelic with their clothing to just ad some colour to the performance. She’s struggling a little. Definitely think Saara Aalto would’ve had much better stage presence and a better structured performance. Right now she’s fodder and SVT have given her a fodder singing spot.

I hope Finland will qualify. Eugene predicted 5/10 from jury, I hope it will be at least 7/10, because it’s more about song, and many of jury members might like classy tunes that delivered with good dance vibe. She lacks show, and it’s kinda sad that it will lower her chances. Jury don’t have to count show element as its a candy for audience, not for music experts. that’s my own opinion.

Now she’s moved up to a borderline qualifier. With a bit more energy and joy she could do it.

Nice presentation. Still, the song sucks. This had no chance to advance when it was selected, and nothing has happened since to change that. Maybe next year Finland.

It’s a very good, catchy and enjoyable song to listen to. I also like the staging, it’s not something impressive but it’s good and Finland is once again underrated. I don’t think that they will qualify but the juries might save Sandhja, like they did in the Finnish national selection.

Sandhja is a good singer, only the song doesn’t show off her nice vocals, just a weak karaoke song, i hope she comes back some time with a more powerful song 🙂

Not a good apearance….weak vocals and she reach very low notes…no final for Finland again
