Back to the crime scene: We’re stoked to perform at @uudenmusiikinkilpailu 2022 finals 26th of Feb. Who’s watching?!

Through winning UMK last year, Blind Channel got to represent Finland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam, where they won the televoting in the second semi-final and ended up in 6th place at the Grand Final. Together with Marion Rung’s “Tom, Tom, Tom“, this is Finland’s second best result of all time, right behind Lordi’s victory in 2006.

These are of course big shoes to fill, for whoever follows Blind Channel as Finland’s representative at this year’s contest! As a reminder, these are the 7 acts, hoping to represent Finland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin:
