With the Baku Eurovision Song Contest getting nearer, the participating countries are busy choosing correctly their representatives. Yesterday, Finland chose Pernilla Karlsson after three elimination rounds and a semifinal show, leaving the last six acts battling for the Baku ticket in yesterday’s final night.
The best three acts, Pernilla Karlsson, Stig and Ville Eetvartti, then qualified for the ‘superfinal’, where it was eventually decided that Pernilla Karlsson will represent Finland in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest with the song ‘När Jag Blundar’. Last year’s Finnish representative, Paradise Oskar attended the show as a special guest. Finland were the winners of the 2006 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest thanks to the group Lordi whose song ‘Hard Rock Hallelujah’ changed the perspective of many people when it comes to discussing the possible winning song. This is the first time in quite some time that a song will be presented in a mixture of Finnish and Swedish.
