/ JOY Eurovision / Podcasts / Programmes / JOYEurovision: The Show / A Finnish party: Previewing UMK 2021


It’s time for Finland to select their entry for Rotterdam (again). And Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu is promising to be quite the show.

Michael, Liam and Io sift through the seven entries in contention for the UMK crown and share their thoughts on what they hear.

Who is Liam sliding off?

Which sad boy is the better sad boy?

Can the team actually agree on something?

UMK airs around Europe at 8pm CET on Saturday 20 February and on the Australian internet at 6am AEDT on Sunday 21 February via Yle Areena.

Who do you think will win the Finnish ticket to Eurovision? Let us know on the socials.
