Finnish broadcaster YLE has announced that the grand final of their selection process for Eurovision 2009, Euroviisut, will take place at the Leonardo Hall, in the city of Tampere.
Tampere is not an outsider to the Finnish national final, Euroviisut, as the city has hosted it several times, like in 2002 or 2005. The grand final is scheduled to be held on January 31st, as esctoday.com announced some two months ago, at the Leonardo Hall.
The grand final will be preceded by three semi-finals, scheduled for January 9th, 16th and 23rd. It is expected that all of them will take place probably in a TV studio.
YLE have also announced today that the names of the 12 competitors that will fight for the right to represent Finland next year in Moscow will be revealed on September 25th.
