FINLAND – Emma, participant in the 2017 Finnish national selections UMK, ending up third spoke recently via a video on her Youtube channel about her participation and experience in the contest. She explains that she tried to make this video sooner but she ended up crying all the time, an obvious sign that she had a depression from her UMK experience. Despite coming up third she feels depressed about her experience and performance at UMK 2017. She described her performance as bad, drowning and with bad vocals as a result of her loosing control of herself, she says.
She feels good singer and professional and somehow she wants to apologise to the Eurovision fans and her fans for that performance. Maybe she is preparing a comeback for the 2018 Finnish national selection? The good thing is that the video concludes with her stating that this experience will not define her as a person along with the hate she received after her performance.
