  • Robin – Girls Like You
  • Lxandra – Something to Lose
  • Käärijä – Cha Cha Cha
  • KUUMAA – Yilvoimainen

The songs will now be released one by one each weekday from tomorrow until the 20th of January at midnight Finnish Time/11pm GMT. They will be released in the order above.

UMK received 363 songs this year and a panel of experts selected these 7 songs. The final on the 25th of February will be broadcast with commentary in Finnish, Swedish, English, Sami, Russian-Ukranian and Sign Language.

UMK’s winner will be decided by a mix of jury (25%) and televote (75%). Last year, Finland was represented by The Rasmus who finished 21st in the final in Turin.
