Finland: Emma wins UMK 2017 online vote, running order and international juries announced

Tomorrow’s show commentator Mikko Silvennoinen has just announced on UMK’s talk-show that Emma has won the official online voting which was opened a few weeks ago and whose results will be added to the televoting results caught on Saturday. This follows My First Band’s win at YLE’s pre-viewing show where an expert panel was asked to cast their vote, but in this case, not linked to the final result.

Complete result look as it follows:

The running order announced earlier today contemplates Emma being decided as the opening act and My First Band closing this year’s finalist performances:

  1. Emma – Circle Of Light
  2. Alva – Arrows
  3. Günther & D’Sanz – Love Yourself
  4. Anni Saikku – Reach Out For The Sun
  5. Knucklebone Oscar & The Shangri-La Rubies – Caveman
  6. Norma John – Blackbird
  7. Lauri Yrjölä – Helppo elämä
  8. Club La Persé – My Little World
  9. Zühlke – Perfect Villain
  10. My First Band – Paradise

International juries that will be making up the half of the final outcome were also announced during the pre-show this afternoon and they are:

  • Estonia
  • France
  • Iceland
  • Israel
  • Norway
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Ukraine
  • United Kingdom

Rehearsals at Espoo Metro Areena in Espoo are well undergone and in full swing. Norwegian duo Marcus & Martinus and Finnish singer Jenni Vartiainen will be performing as the interval acts. We want to remind you that Eurovision fan-favorite Krista Siegfrids has been appointed once again as the host of the show, prior to her Melodifestivalen participation.

Will finally Emma get the right to fly the Finnish colours in Kiev? Stay tuned and watch the show on Saturday, it looks much more than promising!

About Adrián Valiente (Spain)

I love the Eurovision Song Contest not only because of its amazing production but it also gives me the chance to discover new music every year. I've been watching it since 2002, since then I became a huge follower, mostly because of the interest TVE put on it with Rosa from Spain. I've attended the contest several times in the last few years. I also attended the Junior Eurovision in Malta and Bulgaria where we lived an amazing experience thanks to all delegations and PBS/BNT organising team.
