Rooting for Bess and Isaac but wouldn’t be mad if Oliveria won.

Cyan Kicks and The Rasmus are also decent tracks imo.

Younghearted is beautiful but not for ESC.

Tommi may be my last but he oozes charisma and hes amazing.

Go Finland!

There’s like 5 songs I’d be happy to see at Eurovision, so I just hope everyone has fun I guess

Such high quality songs in this selection. Whichever song wins will def be in my top 5, they’re all amazing. And strong contenders in a slightly weak year (so far).

Definitely! Some years ago I wouldn’t have expected Finland to have the best NF of a season, but they’ve improved a lot and now they’re raising the bar too high! 😀

Bess should win this. Please do not vote for the biggest name Finland.

I think she’ll be Finland’s winner, Bess and Younghearted have been the entrants that generated the most buzz there before today 🙂

Rooting for the Rasmus! If they win they will surely be in my top 3 perhaps of the whole season. Looking forward to tonight!

I remember from last year that the Finnish selection had English commenators. Will that also be the case this year?

I suggest an award for broadcasters for the way they handle national selections.

Yle would win it for years on end. They’ve raised the bar really high!!!!

Russian for what? For the war threats towards Finland that happened yesterday?

There are Russian speaking people/Russians living in Finland who I’m pretty sure have nothing to do with the war.

Russian is one of the most spoken languages in Finland, both by native population (especially in the East) and amount of immigrants iirc
