Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu 2017

Since the first UMK in 2012 there have been some changes to the format. The biggest change for UMK 2017 is that there will be no semi-finals. Instead there will be ten participants who will compete only once on 28 January 2017 live from Metro Arena in Helsinki.

The winner will be chosen by the wellknown mix: 50% jury and 50% televoting.

UMK 2017 will be hosted by Krista Siegfrieds (Finland 2013)
