FINLAND: JARI SILLANPÄÄ WOULD DO EUROVISION AGAIN, BUT UMK...

It's no secret Jari Sillanpää is a big Eurovision fan besides being one of the biggest stars in Finland for the past 20 years already. His trip to Istanbul 2004 didn't quite go as he (and we) may have planned so the will to make it better is there. Recently he's got a new team behind him and he's more popular than ever, selling albums again, filling Olympic stadium for his birthday party, winning reality variety shows on television, judging Talent and having a song in the radio top-100 for almost two years already... 
And guess what? His new team thinks he'd be perfect for Eurovision. Or rather Eurovision is a perfect for Jari. Leri Leskinen tells in Jari's recently published biography: "That huge stage, all those parties, it's so Jari. He's been there once but he should do it again. The whole event is like made for him. We have talked about it. We should have some huge ballad there, it's fashiobable now. Adele has vintage written all over, so did late Amy. It's big, But would he go? I think he would. But there's one big obstacle: the Finnish selection now is this UMK. That's not good for him. We should have one artist only final for once."
So, without UMK we would most likely get Jari back. Maybe with something like his latest hit Suurempaa....
