This year Finland was going to be represented by Aksel Kankaanranta. Aksel was born on 28 January 1998, in Turku, Finland.

Aksel is better known due to his participation at the Finnish version of the music talent show The Voice in 2017. He reached the finals of the competition but finished second. He is described as a shy person, but that doesn’t stop him from singing in front of a crowd. He was announced earlier in 2020, as one of the sic contestants of the national final. His song won the contest, after topping the jury voting and coming second on the televoting.

His entry “Looking Back” was composed by Joonas Angeria, Whitney Phillips, Connor McDonough, Riley McDonough and Toby McDonough.

The song was going to compete in the second half of the second semifinal.
