🇫🇮 #FINLAND: UMK 2023 Acts Revealed

This morning, Yle, the Finnish national broadcaster, revealed the acts, their songs and the dates of song release that will be taking part in UMK. The seven acts are:

  • Robin Packalen – “Girls Like You” (16/01)
  • Portion Boys – “Samaa taivasta katsotaan” (We look at the same sky) (20/01)
  • KUUMAA – “Ylivoimainen” (Overpowered) (19/01)
  • Käärijä – “Cha Cha Cha” (18/01)
  • Keira – “No Business On The Dancefloor” (12/01)
  • Lxandra – “Something to Lose” (17/01)
  • Benjamin – “Hoida mut” (Take care of me) (13/01)

Tapio Hakanen, UMK Jury Chairman, had the following to say:

“Thanks to increased interest in UMK, more extremely high-quality entries were submitted this year than ever before, and the judges’ job was anything but easy. This year’s crop of finalists offers an amazing line-up of new songs performed by both long-time favourite artists and total newcomers. The song by Keira, one of the newcomers and the youngest contestant, is the first release of her own music, while the more experienced Portion Boys and Robin Packalen have already amassed a stack of gold and platinum recordings. Benjamin and KUUMAA are currently climbing the charts in Finland, Lxandra is internationally established as a vocal talent and Käärijä has been a promising artist on the rap scene for years. In other words, the UMK23 final promises to be a spectacular show, and choosing the winner will certainly be a challenge for both the international jury and Finnish audience.”
