On the evening of Saturday 22 February, we’ll be looking up north. That’s because Finland will decide who will represent it at Eurovision 2020. Six acts are set to compete in the final of UMK 2020, but only one can win it all. And if it were up to our readers Erika Vikman will take home the trophy with “Cicciolina”.
Erika Vikman is your favourite to win UMK 2020
Following the reveal of all six entries, we asked you to start voting for your favourite to win.
After counting 3,382 votes, we can reveal that you chose Erika Vikman with “Cicciolina”. The song earned a total of 1,639 votes or 48.46% of all votes cast.
Writing in the Wiwi Jury, Robyn says:
“There’s a lot to like about the song. Musically it draws influences from both classical music and Scandi schlager delights. Lyrically, it’s a song of defiance, of a woman who isn’t afraid to get what she wants, even when society is telling her to keep her mouth shut and her legs crossed. In a strange way, it’s a counterpart of “Proud”, with Erika asserting “When you want something, you’ve got to say it out loud”. Well, I say that I want this to go to Rotterdam!”
Coming in in second place is Catharina Zühlke. “Eternity” collected 1,034 votes, or 30.57% of all votes cast.
After that a huge gap opens up. Some distance behind is Aksel Kankaanranta with “Looking Back”. His track gathered 203 votes, which equals 6.00% of all votes cast.
Tika, F3M and Sansa bring up the rear with their entries “I Let My Heart Break”, “Bananas” and “Lover View”. Tika collected 197 votes (5.82%), F3M’s “Bananas” is at 179 votes equalling 5.29%, and finally “Lover View” got 130 votes resulting in 3.84% of all votes cast.
