After weeks of waiting the Finnish national selection Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu is finally here! Broadcaster YLE revealed the seven participating artists exactly a month ago on January 10th with songs being released across the following days.

This year’s lineup and running order will be:

  1. Sini Sabotage – “Kuori mua”
  2. Cyan Kicks – “Dancing with Demons”
  3. Jesse Markin – “Glow”
  4. Mikael Gabriel and Nublu – “Vox Populi”
  5. Sara Siipola – “Paskana”
  6. Sexmane – “Mania”
  7. Windows95man – “No Rules!”

A number of great interval acts are slated for the Finnish national final which include last year’s winner  Käärijä and 2020 runner-up Eruja Vikman, Kuumaa who participated last year, and 2024 UMK host and 2023 participant Benjamin.

This year’s winner of UMK will be selected by a split voting method that gives 75% of the power to the Finnish public. The remaining 25% of the results will be decided by seven international juries as in past years.

You can watch the show on YLE.

Set to happen at the same time is the second heat of Melodifestivalen in Sweden, live from Göteborg. As usual there are two spots in the final up for grabs, with the first finalist being decided by the first round of televoting, and the second being decided by a second short televoting window. The 2nd and 3rd placing songs from round two will enter a “run-off” round and could still win a spot in the Melfest final.

Tonight’s songs and performers will be:

  1. Maria Sur – “When I’m Gone”
  2. Engmans Kapell – “Norrland”
  3. Dear Sara – “The Silence After You”
  4. C-Joe – “Ahumma”
  5. Liamoo – “Dragon”
  6. Fröken Snusk – “Unga & fria”

The winners of the direct-to-final tickets will be determined by a televote only process, with the results traditionally being presented by age brackets. The show will begin at 20:00 CET and can be watched on SVT Play.
