Founded in Punavuori district of Helsinki in 2005 as an antidote to expensive clubs and boring party dressing. La Persé is Helsinki’s most exciting night. An unpretentious underground experience about music, art and self-expression. Infamous for its colourful party-goers, club kids and fashion trannies - from students to porn stars, a wide cross section of ages, colors & sexes attend each month. Everyone is welcome, dressing up is essential. Anything from evening wear to an electric fence.

If Club La Persé is your favorite, please give them a vote in my poll or here 

La Persé boys and the very miss Ellen Vivan are back after nearly seven years. Braver, bolder, brasher, thinner and OLDER. The big characters and even bigger wigs are back at the heart of the capital’s decadent nightlife scene – expect tits, tantrums and tequila shots. And now, besides taking over the nightscene they are taking over the #UMK17 stage... 
They are:
Jean Michelle -  A celebrated DJ, an unconventional role-model, a designer/artist working in Helsinki. Additionally Jean de Jean (dark side of the moon) gender illusionist Michelle has designed music for fashion shows, created stunning graphic design and illustrations for fellow artists, dj's and various club nights.
Miss Anti-Socialite Lili Butterfly Effective 2.0  - A character and inspiration - fashion's nutty boy. The inimitable fashion illustrator and a part-time drag queen.
Mr Cunt -  An airhead electroclash cunt who adore world's more eccentric side.
Ellen Vivan - She is one of the most adored, immaculately turned-out and intriguing characters of the Helsinki night-time.
And what did our international* jury think about this? Quite mixed reviews but only of two kind; either 1-2 points, or 5-6 points. Nothing else. A total of 43/120.  "Very trashy, some euroboys might like this" said Valentina, "Fun, surely comes with a massive show on stage but the song sucks" said Jack. "Kinda funny" by Robert. This blogger thinks #UMK17 could have done without this gimmick - just like Oscar's - and try to include proper songs with real intentions to do well. This must have been an awesome idea on paper but it needed a killer song to be taken seriously and this diddydiddy isn't that, despite famous production. On the other hand it recalls late Peter Burns of Dead or Alive, but then again who does remember him? And how that reflects to Eurovision audience, as that's what we are looking here to please in the end.

Marco (Italy), Francisco (Spain/Venezuela), 3M (Malta), Robert (Netherlands), 3K (Finland) and Blogilkar (Finland). Most jurors have years of experience inside and outside Eurovision as artist, producer and delegation members. Some are just active fans while 3K are a group of teenagers, non-Eurovision fans who follow it as randomly as any normal people, :-) 
All of us gave votes from 0-10 to each entry, so the maximum votes is 120.
