YLE, the Finnish broadcaster of the Eurovision Song Contest, has revealed the running order for next weekend’s second heat of Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu, and opened the public voting.
The second heat will see the six competitors who didn’t perform in heat one, take to the stage for the first time. As with the first heat, only one song will win a place in the final, four will go to the semi-final and one will be eliminated from the competition. The outcome will once again be decided by a jury/public split vote.
From today the Finnish public will be able to begin voting for their favourite act by phone, SMS or via the internet. The voting will close during the live broadcast after each contestant has performed.
The running order
- MAKEA – Painovoima
- Lauri Mikkola – Going down
- Clarissa feat. Josh Standing – Top of the world
- Mikko Pohjola – Sängyn reunalla
- Madcraft – Shining bright
- Hanna Sky – Hope
Last Saturday (January 11), Softengine became the first finalist after winning heat one. Jasmin Michaela, Hukka ja Mama, Dennis Fagerström and MIAU all qualified for the semi-final and Lili Lambert exited the competition.
