    I think that we all know she is a gem, but the problem is that her song wasn't really a gem. Fins waisted a great voice and talent on cheap song.

    I like the song very much, it was in my top 3 at one point of the competition.
    But I think the problem with the entry is, the staging. I still feel they did not get the staging right even at actual contest.
    It was a good song with a somewhat positive message, but it got lost with the nonsensical staging.
    It felt like they are so desperate and are finding all means to throw different elements to make the performance stand-out.
    Though it resonate well with the televoters (not sure which part of it), but I think it was done in the expense of the jury vote, because the whole performance looks like a circus act.
    This is the perfect example of ruining a good song with bad staging.

    There are loads better songs on Saara's new album Wild Wild Wonderland that would have done well at the contest. I don't think the best songs were selected for UMK, and with a few other songs coming in about the 3 minute mark there would have been little need for a lot editing as well

    Well I am happy we made it to GF. GF was kind of disappointing, but at least we beat our lovely neighbour Sweden in televotes!

    Well, this was my favourite of the year. I don't care if some people think it was "cheap" - some of us thought it was amazing.
    An absolute killer song, great Eurovision staging, fun, engaging, beautifully delivered.
    The staging could have been more stripped back and epic, focusing just on her, but still I know she wanted to go all out.
    Saara can hold her head up high by bringing Finland back in the final! She succeeded and we love her forever.

    Re: FINLAND 2018 - Saara Aalto - Monsters

    So having spent the last couple of days replaying Saara's awesome album "Wild Wild Wonderland", the bonus track struck me as strangely familiar. And I couldn't believe that I'd totally forgotten about "No Fear", here 2016 UMK entry. That performance and song was far superior to all 3 of the candidates that she put forward to UMK 2018, so it's so disappointing that "No Fear" wasn't chosen in 2016.

    Besides that, Dance!!! and Don't Deny Our Love would have made perfect potential ESC entries and would have needed very limited editing to satisfy the 3 minute criteria.

    In any case, Saara did not deserve 25th place - what a shame she couldn't grab some more points. Of the 5 scorecards we had at my ESC party, Finland got points on all cards (albeit nothing above a 6 )

    She was good, but i dont know why i dont like her song. Maybe that, because has typical eurovision sounds which irritates me

    I liked it in the semi but by the final I didn't really, the same with the Cyprus song. But at least I found something originally which is more than some.

    Re: FINLAND 2018 - Saara Aalto - Monsters

    A few days ago I couldn't get rid of a melody in my head. I almost got crazy because I couldn't determine where that tune came from and what it actually was. Then suddenly it dawned on me. It was "Monsters". I didn't pay much attention to that song before, during or after the ESC, so I still wonder where I got this virus from in my head. Saara Aalto hacked me! Damn!
