Uuden musiikin kilpailu aka UMK 2015 is undergoing changes this year and while YLE has kept the information minimal so far we have digged out some news. The artists and their songs will be revealed on January 13, 2015 (also on webstream) and the very same day their music video presentations will start one by one on TV2. The first one airs on 13th at 18.55 and the last one on January 27 at 12.40. Besides that all the songs will be played on RadioSuomi on January 18 at 17.15.
And yes, there will be 18 songs this time. The most propable solution I'm guessing is three semifinals with six songs each and six songs making the final.... maybe. The judges/tutors are history and only televoting will decide this time.
