Tangomarkkinat 2012 entrants

The selection process for this year's Tango Royal has started. If you look here and go down approx one page, you will see a list of names:

The public will be able to hear clips and vote online from 2nd April. At least that is what it says. Whether we will be able to do this from outside Finland remains to be seen. A final selection of the top scorers in the online voting will be made at the Galax in Turku on 17th May, and these will be sent to Seinäjoki.

Familiar names in the lineup are Dmitri Sj√∂berg (Tango Prince 1997), Suvi Karjula (runner-up 2010), Eija Koriseva (Arja's sister) and Heidi Pakarinen. The most surprising name is Johanna Pakonen, who you will remember was Tango Queen in 2002. Presumably she has ambitions to be the first person to win the competition twice.
