The third and last semi final of the Finnish national selection for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest will be held tonight. Another five acts will compete for three spots in the grand final.

The show

The show will be broadcast on YLE 2 and TV Finland (on cable or satellite) at 20:00 CET (21:00 local time). Jaana Pelkonen and Mikko Peltola will be the hosts of the programme, which is aired live from the Exhibition Centre in Tampere. Five acts will present one song each and televoting will select the top three to move forward to the grand final on 30th January. The two acts that do not directly qualify for the final are still in the running for a jury wildcard.

In 2009, Finland was represented by Waldo's People, who finished 12th in the first semi final but still qualified for the final thanks to the jury wildcard. In the final, the group came 25th and hence last with their song Lose control.
