FINLAND: SHAME ON YOU YLE - NOT PAYING THE SONGWRITERS TRIP TO EUROVISION...

If you thought it's Eurovision SONG contest now it's clear what YLE thinks about it. The SONGwriters, who are quite much responsable for the outcome and the entry are not worth paying the ticket to Lisbon and their accomodation. All sort of managers, PR people, make up artists, hair artists, choreographers and assistants are, including of course various YLE people having not so much to do at the spot in reality. "We can't just pay everyone" comments YLE while in any sense of the world the artist and the backing group AND the SONGwriters should be the first ones in the list. But no. Not for YLE.
This blogger had a bit hard swallowing they went abroad and bought the songs abroad like any Azerbaijans do (as that is what they did when especially inviting Eurovision winning team (Heroes 2015) to write a song for Saara and Eurovision) but I softened a little when I discovered Linnea and Joy Deb actually do have some Finnish roots. And if YLE had money to bring them over for the UMK final, this is just ridiculous and bad PR. And most of all shameful. No wonder the Debs state they have no will to work with YLE again in the future, so this year has been a great year for UMK team: first they angered the Finnish songwriters, and now even the foreign ones..... Season 2019 will be interesting.....
I feel shamed. Phyi YLE!
