"Lose Control" is a song by the Finnish band Waldo's People and was the Finnish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2009, held in Moscow, Russia. The band won the right to represent the country after winning the Finnish national final Euroviisut 2009 on January 31, 2009. The song was first released on 15 December 2008 as a CD single.
At the Eurovision Song Contest, the song competed in the first semi-final at 12 May and it qualified for the final round as the jury's selection. In the final it placed last, receiving 22 points.
A music video for the song was made and released on 10 December 2008. In the video, the group are homeless people and one of them has "fallen down". He is seen throughout the video lying on the ground while others come up and look at him, but do not offer a hand. By the end, a woman (Karoliina Kallio) tends to him and angel's wings appear on her back.
