    After 2 unfortunate years & non qualifications to the Final in EuroVision,
    its tough for FINLAND.
    Its just bugs me that the Fins tend to choose constantly lame bad songs
    over so much better ones in their NFs.

    My all time most favorite song of FINLAND in Esc is ”Lose Control’ of 2009 <3
    Pity that this finlandic entry didn't do good in the Vision of Moscow.

  • MarioVision

    ”NO FEAR” was such amazing song! <3
    The #1 best song in the whole esc season of 2016! <3
    Its from the all time best ever NF songs that I have ever heard in EuroVision! <3
    Pity that this such beautiful song didn't win shockingly in the UMK.
    If THIS song had represented FINLAND in the Second Chance Ogae Vision Contest
    it would get my points! <3
    SAARA AALTO is such pretty hot & sweety girl <3
    Hopefully she will be lucky enough to represent Finland in a future Vision :)

    ”On It Goes” that got the wild card 4 the contest instead, although also very nice song
    its just my 9th favorite song in the 2nd Chance Ogae Vision (my points)
    Mikael Saari is so handsome hot babe <33

  • MarioVision

    ”Good Enough” was also very good song <3
    2016 was a good year 4 Finland as it had all these great/good songs in the UMK.
    Pity that the winner song that went in Stockholm's Vision was dreadful :(
