They have released 9 studio albums and are currently working on their next one.

The Rehearsal

Finland’s set is covered with with huge, floating black balloons, and the band have brought bright yellow wet weather clothing to the Turin stage. Maybe they’re planning a dip in the waterfall?

As you’d expect from The Rasmus, this is a really confident performance that packs a powerful visual punch with the yellow lighting. They’re like a swarm of rock bees, and we’re very much awake.

Of COURSE Finland have fireworks and smoke jets in the final chorus – it’s pure rock ‘n’ roll.

Finland: Interview with Olivera | Life after death and the participation in UMK 2022 ! (Video)

After being selected to compete in this year’s Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu 2022, Finland’s National Final, Olivera speaks exclusively to EurovisionFun and Apostolos Bogiannos and Apostolis Matamis.

Olivera is among the seven finalists of the national final of Finland for Eurovision 2022 and she will try to represent her country with the song “Thank God I’m an Atheist“.

I always considered competing in UMK but with the appropriate song. And now this showed up  and I think I have to pass a deep message.  As a person that is not so religious, I believe that we can’t know if there is afterlife. No one can answer this question with certainty. I doesn’t matter where everyone believes in, the only thing that matters is having a important life, that no one guarantees will last forever. We must look today, at the people we have close to us and do whatever pleases us, express our love and be good people. I wrote “Thank God I’m an Atheist” wanting to pass this message to the world and especially those who make this kind of thought about life. I didn’t submitted to UMK from the start. My win in the national final would be amazing but what matters the most for me is to manage to make the world express through this.

Asked about her staging of the song in the national final Olivera said:

There is nothing too big or too small. The staging will be based on the story of the song without having something that will distracting from the message I want to pass. I think it will be very beautiful.

Even though she likes every song in UMK 2022, the ones that stand out for her are those of Tommi LäntinenCyan Kicks and Isaac Sene.

Her favorite Finish entries are those of Vicky Rosti & Boulevard (1987) and Paradise Oskar (2011) while from the contest in general the entry that stands out for her is Loreen (Sweden 2012).

If she could pick a Eurostar to collaborate that would be Måneskin.

Sometime before the end of the interview, Olivera offered us a part of her song acapella
