After three semi finals the long awaited final has come in Finland. From the quality of the production you can see that there is a very high technical and musical standard this year in the UMK shows. It is to be expected that there will be some more nice surprises in the final show. Funny to see is that Krista Siegfrieds is co-hosting the UMK, but parallel entered the Swedish Melodifestivalen as a singer. Unfortunately, she failed with the qualification. At that evening her first stage appearance has been recorded. Krista Siegfrieds has also entered the ESC for Finland with “Marry Me” in 2013, where she ended up on the 24th place.
The big favourites this year are Saara Alto, Mikael Saari and Annica Milan & Kimmo Blom. But nobody knows, maybe there will be a surprise winner.
