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.
The dust has settled, and fans of nations that did not qualify from Semi-Final 1 have had a chance to process the results and assess what went wrong (or why fans did not react favorably if the performances went right).
