We will hear the UMK 2017 songs for the first time in just few hours. To get us excited, Finland’s national broadcaster YLE let Krista Siegfrids — Eurovision 2013 star and the host of this year’s Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu — got to listen and react to the songs before anyone else.
There are some amazing songs, y’all, if we can trust Krista on that. The song genres vary from folk pop to disco and dance music. The songs are mostly in English or Finnish, but one of them mixes both of the languages! It seems that variety is definitely the spice of life this year.
UMK17: Krista Siegfrids reacts to the competing songs
Krista gets all groovy with one of the competing songs, while another one makes her go “what the fuck?!”. We think that means she likes it! The sixth song is even described as having some “gay glam” in it. Overall, Krista seems to enjoy all of the songs – this is getting us seriously excited!
