Helsinki, Finland -

The semi-final round just took place in Finland for their 2013 national selection UMK. After the results of the televote were added to those of the expert jury it turned out that the acts that also go to the final next week are Last Panda, Lucy Was Driving, Great Wide North and Elina Orkoneva!

In last night's semi-final show of Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu 2013, which you could follow here on our Web TV Player, the following six acts looked for the last four spots in the final (qualifiers in bold):

  • Last Panda - Saturday Night Forever (Last Panda, Henry Tikkanen, Aapo Immonen)
  • Elina Orkoneva - He’s Not My Man (Elina Orkoneva, Mikko Arlin, Joona Hasan, Eveliina Jämsä, Lauri Lähteenkorva, Henri Mäntylä)
  • Rautakoura - Ilmalaivalla / Board On Air (Lauri Häme, Rautakoura)
  • Great Wide North - Flags (Kaj Kiviniemi, Mika Kiviniemi, Great Wide North)
  • Iina Salin - Last Night (Iina Salin, Tommi Gröhn)
  • Lucy Was Driving - Dancing All Across The Universe (Lucy Was Driving, Otso Koskel)

Great Wide North were once again the favourites of the expert jury. Sadly, Iina Salin and Rautakoura were voted off the UMK competition.

Now we have the full line-up for the final of UMK to take place next Saturday 9th of February in Espoo:

    Arion are the best! The music is just beautiful!!
    As for "Marry Me", it is the lowest form of trashy pop and (as a fan of everything Finnish) I refuse to believe that it represents my favorite country in ANY way, shape or form!
