Will Mervi Koponen, the winner of Tangomarkkinat 2011, be Finland's ESC 2012 representer? She has already said "yes" for participating in Euroviisut 2012.  :)




Here you can see her singing the same song than Amadeus in 2010 and Marko Maunuksela in 2011, so that you can compare her voice with the 2 previous tango winners.  ;)

just get Tarja, since shes left Nightwish her career has went downhill :(  It may help it, after all Lordi won eurovision and the franchise after Lordi was hilarious in Finland (granted Lordi Cola was great), I mean I even seen Lordi Tampons advertised in Helsinki.

< one of her better songs.
< and a not so good idea

To be honest, I really don't like our winner in Tangomarkkinat this year. According to very many people, the result was a scandal and the juries only wanted to see a female winner.  :( The singer who became 2nd was the favorite of people:


Heikki Koskelo - singing Tango Desiree

In my opinion, he vocally reminds the only real tango king of Finland, Olavi Virta (1915 - 1972)

Maybe a cross between Olavi Virta and Tapio Rautavaara as I hear some similarities in Tapio's:

Good old Tapio!  :goodjob: This song is so beloved here in Finland still today!  :) By the way, did you know that he became the Olympic Champion in the javelin at the 1948 Summer Olympics in London with the result of 69.77 meters ?  ;)

it's good euroviisut changes; after many years of awesome editions (i particularly love the 2007 edition, probably the hype after Lordi's victory), the 2011 edition was terribly disappointing, especially live... "Da da dam" was probably the only one who could have reached the esc finale! Let's see what's the new rules will bring for 2012

Quote from: Esctoday
The Finnish national broadcaster YLE has completely revamped the way the country's Eurovision Song Contest entry is selected. A whole new team is in charge, a new name for the contest, now just looking for new music with the added prize of representing Finland at the international contest. The selection show will be called Uuden musiikin kilpailu (UMK), Contest for New Music and submissions for songs are now open.

The producer of UMK, Anssi Autio, told the YLE TV morning show today, that as they had the task to change the way the Finnish Eurovision Song Contest entries are selected, they decided to go for a complete overhaul. New look, new sound, new everything. "We are looking for individual songs, he states. Not everything has to be made according to a Eurovision formula, he states. The Finns have been all too worried about how their songs will be received abroad, rather than just making good songs, from the heart."

Autio promises the participants a lot of visibility, which in itself will help all the contestants. The songs will be played on YLE radio stations, there will be live gigs where the songs get performed so that the there will be a build-up for a great final in February. Autio wishes to have songs in all possible musical genres and that UMK would get some inspiration from the popular Flow-festival, that has just finished in Helsinki.

The songs can be submitted to YLE from today by anybody until the 30th of September, there will then be a jury selection, auditions, live club gigs and eventually the final. The televised part of the process will start in January 2012.

Only one demo is accepted from each artist, songwriters can however submit several entries. One person in each song writing team must have permanent residence in Finland or Finnish nationality, as well as the main artist(s). The demo can submitted online or via mail, and the application form at yle.fi/umk will have to be attached. Also photos of the artists must be attached as well as the lyrics. The songs may not be submitted to any other national Eurovision selection and cannot be in any way made available to the public until 28 January 2012, with the exception of performance on YLE channels. The submitted songs can be in any language.

that's AMAZING news, exactly what ESTONIA did to make them so good now! I'm very hopeful!

I listened all songs yesterday and I've got one song that I have listened in repeat quite many times already.
It's DCX "Erase you"
Something is really catchy in this...don't know what.

Finnish Top 5 so far is quite 50/50 good and bad.
Fanitusbarometri

1. Martina: ”Checkmate”
I don't get why it is in first place. It's actually the style what I'm listening, but words are quite nonsense (for me) and that sound isn't catchy too. Maybe she is popular at the moment in Finland?

2. Malin Kojola: ”Home”
Really nice song. But I'm not sure is it enough for Eurovision.

3. Stig: ”Laululeija”
I don't understand a word, but music is okey. Not something for me. But Finnish seem to like :D

4. DCX: ”Erase You”
And yes...my favourite. I hope it will be Finland 2012 song!

5. The Spyro: ”Teleport My Heart”
It actually quite catchy. Nice one! =)

I hope the best song wins! :D

On the Finnish fanistubarometri venture - here are some songs that I like for one reason or another:

'Aamuyön ikuisuus'
'Home'
'Laululeija'
'När jag blundar'
'We are the night'
'Yksin yhdessä'
'Usko rakkauteen'
'Lasikaupunki'
'Different coloured socks'
'Rytmit rikkoutuu'
'Sinisulkien viimeinen'
'Mun taivas'
'Antaa mennä'
'Joenvarren tyttö'
'Meikin alta'
'Only 7 days'
'Hooked on wii' (this is a grower and is so unexpectadly  :ohmy:)
'November's touch'
'Perfect'

All of the above helped me make my way through Lisbon's rainy weather and heavy traffic  :sing:. Good luck.

I must say that I really love this song!  :heart: I am really happy because it won!  :hug:

By the way, in my opinion it reminds a little bit Estonia 2010.  :)

No, take vitamine C.  :P

She might need those. Or even better, Redbull  :mosking:

Seriously though she needs to do something about the song. It sounds like it's not the last version yet  :worry:

I just wish that there would not be a dancer. Another wish is that she won't sing in English but in Swedish, just like in nf.
