Blind Channel have won Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu 2021 and will represent Finland at the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam. Last year’s winner Aksel also took part in the show, but he did not manage to win again.

Aksel (who previously was meant to represent Finland at Eurovision before the cancellation of Eurovision 2020) came third with the International Jury with his song ‘Hurt’. However, in the final result, he did not come close to victory. Blind Channel were top favorites before the show. They made true on their status, booking a landslide victory.

The final result of UMK 2021:

  1. Blind Channel – “Dark Side”
  2. Teflon Brothers x Pandora – “I Love You”
  3. Ilta – “Kelle mä soitan”
  • Aksel – “Hurt”
  • Laura – “Play”
  • Danny – “Sinä päivänä kun kaikki rakastaa mua”
  • Oskr – “Lie”
