Jaana Pelkonen and Heikki Paasonen are tipped to host the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest. Finnish newspaper Iltalehti wrote that. 40,67% of its readers voted for Pelkonen as favourite female host, 35,09% gave their vote to Paasonen.

Heikki Paasonen said to MTV3's entertainment news that Jaana and he were promised the jobs already, but YLE could not confirm that. "Only the project managers have been appointed", was YLE's official comment.

Jaana Pelkonen has been leading a game show and has quite some experience with making live television, for example the Finnish national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. Heikki Paasonen hosted the national selection for several times as well and is well-known in Finland for hosting a chart show and the national edition of Pop Idol.

Finnish public broadcaster YLE expects to have more information about the organisation of the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest within a couple of weeks.
