Tonight Finland will decide which out of three Darude songs will be Finland’s entry for Eurovision 2019. The international producer featuring vocalist Sebastian Rejman will perform three songs at the national final UMK 2019. But only one will make it to Tel Aviv.
Earlier we asked wiwibloggs readers which track you thought should win the national final. The result was clear. “Look Away” topped the poll with 46.83% of the vote. The music with a message is the only track co-written by Derude and Rejman together.
In second place is “Superman”, the uplifting song with electronic flourishes that remind fans of Darude’s iconic hit “Sandstorm”. “Superman” earned 26.77% of the vote.
Closely following in third place was the first of the three tracks to be unleashed on the Finnish public. “Release Me” picked up 26.4% of the vote.
