You have been submitting your predictions for the latest round of Eurovision Prediction 2022. In one of the two finals due to take place today, you were asked to predict the winner of Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu 2022. Now, let’s take a look at who you collectively expect to win the Finnish ticket to Turin!
Tonight, the final of Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu 2022 will take place, with seven acts competing. The show will be hosted by pop artist Vesala and social media influencer Mmiisas.
The winner and Finland’s Eurovision 2022 representative will be chosen by international jury (25% of the vote) and the Finnish public (75% of the vote).
Voting in the final can be done by calling the provided phone number of your favourite act, sending a text message or using the Yle app, where you can vote once for free. The voting will open after all of the acts have performed.
- The Rasmus – “Jezebel“
- Isaac Sene – “Kuuma jäbä“
- Olivera – “Thank God I’m an Atheist“
- BESS – “Ram pam pam“
- Younghearted – “Sun numero“
- Cyan Kicks – “Hurricane“
- Tommi Läntinen – “Elämä kantaa mua“
Let’s take a look at who YOU predict they will choose!
During this round of Eurovision Prediction 2022, 466 of you have predicted who you think will take victory in Finland. Without further ado, here are the entries that YOU have predicted to win in order of frequency, from most to least:
|Rank||Artist||Song||Number of predictions||Percentage|
|2||BESS||Ram pam pam||98||20.2|
|4||Olivera||Thank God I’m an Atheist||15||3.1|
|5||Isaac Sene||Kuuma jäbä||13||2.7|
|7||Tommi Läntinen||Elämä kantaa mua||1||0.2|
Last year, over 51% of our players correctly predicted that Blind Channel would win UMK 2021 with “Dark Side”. This wasn’t quite as decisive a lead as 2019, when Erika Vikman’s “Cicciolina” scooped up over 87% of the vote. Of course, the fan favourite fell foul of the ‘Eurovision Prediction curse’, and ended up placing second.
Members of the ESCXTRA team may be disappointed with this result, as they selected BESS’ “Ram pam pam” as their winner in our XTRA Decides feature.
After each national final, the points will be assigned and you will receive a rankings update via our Eurovision Prediction platform. Furthermore, we will make sure to notify you via our Eurovision Prediction Facebook page, our Eurovision Prediction Twitter page and here on the ESCXTRA website. The player that accumulates the most points after all the rounds have taken place will be crowned the winner of Eurovision Prediction 2022!
In 2021, our 363 prediction players predicted the correct national winners 7 out of 13 times. The year before, in 2020, 10 of out 27 times…an all-time low. To be fair, 2020 was a very unpredictable year in general. In 2019, our Eurovision Prediction players collectively predicted 16 out of 29 national final winners correctly. In 2018, your record was 19 out of 30.
So far, our players have guessed 8 out of 17 selections correctly. Let’s see how many of tonight’s five entries will have been predicted correctly.
With 25 national finals for 2022 overall, there are still PLENTY of points up for grabs!
