Krista Siegfrids will host the Finnish national selection UMK (New Music Competition – Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu in Finnish) when it returns next year!


Previous experience

This is not the first time that Krista has hosted a TV-show. Krista has previously been the host of The Voice of Finland and the Finnish music show Tähdet Tähdet. Krista was also the Finnish spokesperson in Vienna, handing out the Finnish points. Here, she also gave a taste of her 2013 song “Marry Me,” announcing that she had “finally gotten married,” showing her ring and shouting “Ding Dong!” (minute 2:58).

Co-host: Roope Salminen

Krista will be co-hosting UMK 2016 with Finnish actor/singer/rapper Roope Salminen. As both UMK hosts are singers, the audience can expect live performances during the show. For now, they have made a promo video together, as seen below.

The Finnish candidates for UMK will be revealed on the 12th of January 2016 at 11:00 am (CET) at YLE‘s website. The Finnish national selection will start on the 6th of February 2016.


Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät represented Finland in Vienna in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015, but failed to reach the final.
