Finn the music industry is rewarding itself even in these exceptional times. The 2020 Emma Gala nominees were announced on Thursday.

There were no shocking surprises among them. It should be noted, however, that there are more candidates among the candidates who have collected the most candidates.

The year 2020 was above all Behmin, and it is also reflected in the number of nominations he collected. He collected the most nominations, a total of six. Nominations came in the categories Artist of the Year, Album, Newcomer, Song and Pop. In addition, he will be involved in the public vote.

Next Emma nominations collected the most Emma nominations, Antti tuisku and Arttu Wiskari, a total of five nominations each.

Spice Jobs released a new one Not even angels fly without wings album in November 2020, Antti Tuiskulta was released Selected people in February. Arttu Wiskarin Under a Finnish-shaped cloud was released in August, and its album tracks in particular Was this here? was a big hit of the year.

Four candidates were nominated Ibe, Mouhous, Nightwish, Roses and William. Of these, William is expected to be among those who have collected the most nominations since his Penelopetheir song was last year’s number one hit in streaming services.

Mouhous, on the other hand, is a very popular but perhaps even more unfamiliar to the general public. This is his debut album from Jyväskylä, last February I Hate Mouhous released by a hip-hop band.

The Emma Gala is always also a competition for record companies. This year, by far the most nominations grabbed Warner Music. The next Universal to reach is far behind.

Behmin (real name Rita Behm), the development of a comet-like breakthrough has been interesting to follow. Back in 2017, he was an unknown hitman Little G’s in the chorus of the return single. Behm’s first single, released in the fall of 2019 Hi dear then became a mega hit that has been streamed more than 18 million times.

In 2020, Behm controlled streaming services almost sovereignly. Among the ten most listened to songs on Spotify, there were as many as three of Behm’s songs. Found in third place Hi dear, Frida was the sixth most listened to of the year and Tivolit seventh I listened.

He was sixth of Spotify’s most listened to artists in Finland.

Last fall, he had time to hold three sold-out record releases in Tavastia before the pandemic closed the gig doors again.

A critic present at the time Oskari Onninen praised him in HS as a lyricist with an eye for tension. In addition, according to Onninen, almost all of Behm’s songs have joint singing potential. Onninen used Florence & the Machine as a reference for Behm’s songs Florence Welshin drama pop. He found a difference in singing: “Fortunately, Behm doesn’t sing to the fullest like Florence Welsh. Whispering gets you much closer than whispering. ”

Finnish the music’s biggest awards ceremony, the Emma Gala, will normally announce nominees at the end of the previous year, but this year the nominees were announced a month later. This is because the corona pandemic postponed the gala from early May to 2021.

This year, the awards will be presented in twenty-four different nominees. The Finnish artist / band of the year will be chosen by public vote.

The Emma Gala is scheduled to take place at Hartwall Arena on May 14th. With these prospects, the opportunity is open to the public.
