UMK 2014 reviews wiwi jury

The Wiwi Jury—our in-house panel of music un-professionals—have been spending a lot of time in Helsinki. That’s because we’re currently reviewing all 12 of the Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu (UMK) contestants for 2014. Over the next two weeks each member of the jury will offers his or her critique of each song, and then award it a score out of 10. The scores will then be averaged for the Wiwi Jury Verdict. The jury consists of Americans, Brits, Irishmen and even a real-life Finn. We suspect he’ll be a better indicator of who will win #umk14 than the rest of us…

As always, we will be making our predictions ahead of each show. The Wiwi Jury Verdict will count for half of the score, while the other half will consist of votes earned in our ongoing UMK 2014 polls. It’s all about bringing together your favourites, and ours. Just click on the song title below to read our reviews.

She evokes fond mmiorees, but sadly I fear that the Eurovision song contest is the graveyard of all singers .so beware Bonnie Tyler as you could join old Englebert Humperdink and numerous others. Bon chance for the most meaningless slanted competiton in the world.
