The sixth edition of the national qualifying round Uuden musiikin kilpailu -“the new music contest”-in one night is finished. It is for the first time since 2002 that no other shows will go prior to the actual national final. Take the ten candidates on January 28 against each other. who that and which songs they bring, is published in exactly two weeks, on 23 november.
Another change is in the voting concept. The juries in the past two years were from people who were exercising certain professions (teachers, construction workers, presenters) to other groups of people (children, LGBT people, Swedish-speaking Finns). Next year who replaced by international juries, in analogy with the preliminaries from Sweden and Norway. The Finnish audience decides still have the other 50% of the result.
