The selection will see seven artists perform. The results will be determined by a mixture of public and jury vote. Unlike previous years, the split will be 75% public, 25% jury. The UMK 2021 finalists are:

For the first time since 2016, Krista Siegfrids will not be hosting the show. Instead, Antti Tuisku will take on presenting duties for the evening. The opening act will see the return of Erika Vikman, the 2020 televote winner. Pop band Haloo Helsinki! will perform during the interval.
Will you be watching Finland’s UMK on Saturday? Who do you think should win?
UMK, MGP and Spain’s Destino Eurovisión 2021 will make my saturday perfect! Doesn’t matter which song each country selects since all options are so good! I’m EXCITED!
Good luck to everyone, this will be the best day in february for me!

Any number of them could stand to do very well in Rotterdam and I can’t wait to see who they choose! (Also: no, I don’t think we should compete, but I can’t act like I’m not a little excited that the USA has a jury in a NF. We’ve got Eurofans too!)
