A couple of months back YLE uploaded short clips of each of the twelve songs that will compete to represent Finland at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. And yesterday, they premiered all of the tracks in full.

Have a listen to them all below.

Here’s how the voting and selection works, first though;

Two heats, with six songs in each. Two songs from each heat will go straight to the final which takes place on February 9th. But the week before on January 31st, there’ll be a second chance round where four more songs will be chosen to join the other four already in the final. And then all eight will “battle it out” to represent Finland at Eurovision.

Now though. The songs. We’re not gonna lie – for the most part, they’re pretty atrocious. Let’s be hoping for a Diandra win.
