Portion Boys: “Expect a high energy performance with surprises!”
The Portion Boys are participating in this year’s national final of Finland, UMK 2023 with the track “Samaa taivasta taksanas” and a few days ago they spoke exclusively to Eurovisionfun, specifically to Apostolis Matamis and Apostolοs Bogiannos, about their participation and their plans for the national final.
After getting to know all five band members, we chatted about their decision to take part in this year’s Finnish national final!
“Last year we wrote the song and immediately knew that it would fit UMK, and we felt that this was the right time! Now Finland is ready for us, we are ready for her and hopefully all of Europe!”
Regarding the song with which they participate in this year’s national final, they told us:
“Life is not that serious and you can enjoy it the way you want! We want to make the audience feel happy through our song.
“Our message is that we are all different but equal! In our own unique way, we use humor as a tool to convey the very important message of our song.”
Regarding the references to other countries in the song’s lyrics, the band revealed that it was a way to include more people as they also liked the word “Acropolis” very much and wanted it in the song. Also, many countries and regions did not manage to get into the song but on the other hand they have received messages that their song also has an educational function for many young children.
“Among the countries there is also Hungary, which does not participate in Eurovision either! So we’re not using the countries to necessarily win votes, but of course we’d like the public’s votes!”
For their stage appearance, the Portion Boys revealed to us:
“Expect a lot of energy from us and a lot of surprises!“
They stated that their favorite Finnish participation is Lordi (Finland 2006) and Blind Channel (Finland 2021), while as their favorite participation of the competition they mentioned Loreen from Sweden, Dana International from Israel and the Moldovan participation from 2010 with the viral sax-guy!
