Starting now, people living in Finland can cast their votes as well until the 26th of January on the YLE website. You can also find all video clips of all songs there.

Two days later the act that will represent Finland in Kiev will be chosen based on a 50% of public voting (live and advance voting combined) plus 50% score of international juries, which will cast their vote during the national final.
