UMK23 artists will be announced on 11 January 2023

363 song entries participated in the upcoming contest and the seven finalist artists and songs have now been chosen. This year, choosing the finalists was especially challenging for the jury.

— Expectations for this season are extraordinarily high after last year’s stunning success, says head of the UMK jury and YleX Head of Music Tapio Hakanen.

— The seven finalists include familiar faces and new, up-and-coming talents. We have, among others, the best dance song in UMK history sung by an unbelievably strong new singer, a song that just oozes sexuality by a well-known artist, a heartbreakingly beautiful ballad by one of Finland’s biggest export hopefuls, well-known and up-and-coming bands, and one of the strongest rap bangers in UMK history.

The UMK23 artists will be announced on 11 January. The artists' competing songs will be announced on separate days from 12 January to 20 January 2023.
