After sadly missing out on his chance to represent Finland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020, Aksel takes another shot in 2021. He is one of the confirmed artists for UMK 2021, the Finnish preselection for the contest in Rotterdam, and takes part with the song ‘Hurt’.
The final of UMK 2021 takes place on the 20th of February. Seven artists will take part. Apart from Aksel, Laura (ESC 2005 and 2017 for Estonia) is another familiar face in the line-up. The televote winner in Finland in 2020, Erika Vikman, does not return to UMK this year.
These are the seven songs, check them out below!
Teflon Brothers x Pandora: I Love You
Danny: Sinä Päivänä Kun Kaikki Rakastaa Mua
Blind Channel: Dark Side
Ilta: Kelle Mä Soitan
The final of UMK 2021 will be aired without an actual audience in the hall. The winner will be chosen based on a public televote and points from an international jury.
