Tonight the national selection round in Finland will continue in Uuden musiikin kilpailu UMK.

The programme

The second of three live shows from The Circus nightclub in Helsinki. Six acts will perform the new versions of their songs live. A combination of jury and public votes will decide which two songs go further to the February final, and three more songs will get a second chance of qualifying in the semi-final in two weeks time.

The judges are Toni Wirtanen, Redrama, Aija Puurtinen and Tomi Saarinen.

UMK 2013 is hosted by Ile Uusivuori and Anne Lainto
