Saara Aalto, who was revealed in late 2017 as the Finnish contestant for Eurovision 2018, has updated fans on her ongoing Eurovision journey ahead of next month’s song releases.

Finland’s first ever internally selected artist, Saara Aalto, has revealed on her social media accounts that she has finished filming the videos for the three songs that are in the running to be the entry for Finland in the Eurovision Song Contest 2018.

Posting earlier today, Saara revealed:

Song reveal next month

The videos for the songs will be released throughout February, with the first one out on 9 February, then the 16 and 23 February for the remaining two entries.

Saara will perform all of her bidding songs live at the Finnish national final, Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu (UMK) which is being held at the Espoo Metro Arena, just outside Helsinki in southern Finland on 3 March.

The winning song will be decided by a mixture of international jury and public votes, with Saara going on to compete in one of the 2 semi-finals of Eurovision 2018 on either the 8 or 10 May.
