Earlier this week we revealed some very exciting news concerning this year’s Finnish Eurovision selection show Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu (UMK). Now we have some even more exciting news! Our favourite Finnish entry from recent years Krista Siegfrids will return to host the show in January 2017.
The ‘Marry Me’ singer has been busy this year! Not only did she host the 2016 version of UMK, she also competed in the Swedish selection show Melodifestivalen and even had time to squeeze in recording her new song ‘Be Real’ which dropped earlier this month.
UMK which was previously contested over three semi finals, culminating in the grand final three week later, has this year been stripped back. This year there will only be the grand final which will take place on 28th January.
Check out the recent teaser trailer for the show in which Krista dons an orange pant suit and does her best Hillary Clinton impression and vows to make Finland fab again!
