Now, writing this annual post isn't easy this year. It seems there isn't any reaction really. Just short articles "Norma John won" and that's it. Some try to make it look like a surprise win even if they have been one of the top favorites from the day one. On top of that Finland's biggest newspaper published an article about UMK in general, a very critical and negative one. One can only wonder what its purpose is....
My First Band were first to congratulate Norma John and didn't seem at all disappointed, even if they were tipped for victory in media.
And now Leena and Lasse has to sit down and start clearing off their calendar as they both have a zillion projects and things to do already planned.
They say their staging in Kyiv will be similar but bigger yet "music first". They seemed rather surprised and overwhelmed for their victory they didn't expect.
This blogger thinks this season is going to be a good one .... :-)
