Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu‘s official Instagram account has released the first details about the third artist to participate in the Finnish national final!
- The most experienced artist on the label (note: they use the same word “konkari” which could also be translated as “veteran” as they used to describe The Rasmus , but not necessarily 60+ years old)
- Returns to the UMK stage
- Iconic, but not Danny
The first talks are about three female singers since they seem to meet the conditions. Perhaps the third clue immediately goes to Erika Vikman where she participated in UMK 2020 and ended up in the second place. Danny and Erika were in a relationship for four years and broke up after the competition.
Also names that come to the surface are Saara Aalto and Krista Siegfrids where they both represented Finland at Eurovision.
UMK‘s songs will be released from January 12th to January 20th, one each day, while the artists will be announced on January 11th !
Previous UMK winners and Finland‘s representatives at Eurovision 2022 were The Rasmus with the song “Jezebel” and they finished in 21st place in the Grand Final:
