Lucía Pérez represented Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 with the song “Que me quiten lo bailao” and finished 23rd in the final.

The international jury has been part of Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu since 2017. This year, the jury will give 50 percent of the votes in the final. It hasn’t been announced, which countries will be part of the jury this year. Last year the points came from United Kingdom, Norway, Spain, Czech Republic, Sweden, Ireland, Denmark and the Eurovision 2019 host country Israel.
