Finland: the Eurovision fans have spoken

by Martti Immonen 67 views

The Eurovision Song Contest and it's Finnish national final Euroviisut 2004 have been the hot subject of the passing week. Yesterday the recording of the programme Jos… saisimme päättää euroviisuista (If… we could decide about eurovision ), which will be on the air right after the national final. In the debate quests as Marion Rung, Jaakko Salovaara (producer for Darude & Bomfunk Mc), Mari Pajala (Eurovision researcher), Raimo Henriksson (producer during Marion Rung's Tom tom tomera, Pauliina Ahokas from Fimic and Martti Immonen. The show will rise questions and suggestions and most likely will give birth to even more talk shows about this subject.

But the traditional fan voting was done also this year. And the results are hardly that surprising to anyone and may give the direction how the Finnish televoters will act.

Here are the results from the Finnish Eurovision fans , where 37 people participated:

1. Jari Sillanpää Takes 2 to tango 217
2. Riikka Toarie 156
3. Susann Sonntag Eleventh hour 155
4. Anna Stenlund A little crazy 136
5. Jonna K Like believers do 128
6. Iina & Gary You don�t need to go 108
7. Sonja Biskop Should I run, should I hide 58
8. Heidi Kyrö & just Dance my heart away 36
9. Patrick Linman Can�t stop loving you 26
10. Arja Koriseva Til the end of time 23
11. Geir Rönning I don�t need to say 20
12. Danny & D�Voices Seven times seven 10
