Knock Knock Who's There - Kop kop ken lie

It seems that when an artist has been representing one's country in ESC she or he is destined later to be covering other ESC songs. As did Kristiina Hautala. She took part in the Eurovision Song Contest 1968 with the song "Kun kello käy". In 1970 she recorded "Kop,kop, ken lie" (Knock knock who's there) which was a cover of UK's entry in the ESC of that year. Mary Hopkin () performed "Knock Knock Who's There" in ESC Amsterdam and took the second-place slot with 26 points. The winner was Ireland's Dana with "All Kinds Of Everthing". Finland did not take part. After Eurovision, the "Knock Knock" -song placed at number 2 on the UK Singles Chart. You can see Mary performing the song, here.

Here's the pair:
