Your opinion

  • You can vote for your favourite song in our poll here.

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.
