Finland – Finnish broadcaster, YLE, has today revealed the full line-up for Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu 2016. 18 artists will compete for the ticket to represent Finland in Stockholm. All songs are available as well! Check them out!
After snippets were revealed earlier this month, we now have the full songs to enjoy. We can start discussing the quality of the new edition of UMK, after an edition that’s openly regarded as disappointing to say the least; we can also start predicting as a very popular returning artist, Mikael Saari (who won in 2013 ET’s “best one that got away” title), is taking part.
