We received the sad news that Finnish Eurovision participant Pave Maijanen passed away. Maijanen is especially known for his Eurovision song “Yamma yamma”, in which he sang the word “Yamma” no less than 72 times. However, he was also a backing vocal in Eurovision in 1983 and 1993.Paves was a Finnish musician, who has worked as a singer, songwriter, bass player, keyboard player, drummer, guitarist and producer during his long career. As well as his solo career, Pave was a member of several bands.  He released his first solo album in 1983. In the 1990s, Pave’s career went into a downfall. When his own solo career was quiet, Maijanen acted as the keyboard player on Dingo’s comeback gigs from 1993 to 1994. At the end of the 1990s, Pave came back to the limelights, when the group “Mestarit Areenalla”, consisting of him, Kirka, Hector and Pepe Willberg sold out at Finnish ice hockey halls and he also organised his own concert at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium, becoming the first ever Finnish artist to do so. Pave has also produced music for the television.Pave Maijanen was 70 years old.

Milita Daikerytė was more successful in 2015, but she had to quit due to health problems. Maybe she has more luck this time. In 2019, we saw Aldegunda reaching the semifinals. We saw Benas Malakauskas (Titas & Benas) doing attempts in 2017 and 2018.
