Christoffer Strandberg will reveal the results of the Finnish jury at the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019.
Comedian, actor and presenter Christoffer Strandberg has been announced as the Finnish spokesperson for Eurovision 2019. Christoffer has been involved in the Finnish selection process for the past two years. He told YLE:
When I was called a few months ago, I was preparing for the performance at the Helsinki City Theater. I immediately answered yes. This is such a great honor and somehow a wonderfully absurd little-great task.
Finland failed to qualify for the Grand Final, having been represented by Darude feat. Sebastian Rejman. They performed “Look Away”, but didn’t manage to win over the jurors or public.
Finland first participated in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1961, they debuted alongside Spain and Yugoslavia. Finland has finished last in the contest on 10 occasions and has received ‘nul points’ three times. It wasn’t until 2006 that Finland won the Eurovision Song Contest, Lordi represented the country in Athens with the song “Hard Rock Hallelujah” scoring 292 points a record total at the time.
