DJ Darude and vocalist Sebastian Rejman will represent Finland in the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel, reported Eurovision World in a bulletin.

The duo will perform the song "Look Aaway".DJ Darude and Rejman performed three songs in Turku during the "New Music Competion" known locally as Uuden Musiikin Kiplailu (UMK).The song was selected by an international jury and the Finnish public.

The decision of the winning song was made by televoting via the national broadcaster Yle combined with international juries. The international juries represented Spain, Czech Republic, United Kingdom, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Israel.

This edition of UMK is the second one focused only on one artist to choose the song to perform at Eurovision. This format was introduced last year when Saara Aalto, "the eternal second", was selected.
