Finland: Käärijä’s song accused of plagiarism!

A few days ago, Käärijä’s song titled “Cha Cha Cha”, was released in order to compete in Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu 2023, the Finnish national final for Eurovision 2023.

From the moment it was released, it quickly became one of the fan favourites and rised to the first place of the betting odds for winning the national final, by a great margin.

However, some of the comments in the Finnish press came in to change everything and even disqualify Käärijä  from the contest. The journalists accused Käärijä of plagiarism and that his song is a copy of another song, something that is prohibited by EBU’s rules for the contest.

In detail, the accusations want “Cha Cha Cha” to be a copy of the song “We Got the Moves” by Electric Callboys a German electronicore group:

What do you think about all of the above? Do you think that “Cha Cha Cha” is indeed a copy and that Käärijä should be disqualified from UMK?

      It’s not. End of. Anyone who knows anything about EDM and techno knows mixing techno and metal is nothing new under the sun, this particular sound is well established in the genre. Inspired? Possibly. Plagiarism? Absolutely not and it’s ridiculous to even claim so
