In a shocking contrast to Finland’s entry from Waldo’s People, Iceland delivers a contestant who can actually sing live. Yohanna, a native of Denmark who moved to Iceland at the age of 2, is already a superstar in her adopted home. Now she’s set to take Europe by storm with Is It True?, a ballad that channels Nashville, Tennessee more than Reykjavik.

Yohanna performed live at the London Eurovision Preview Party two weeks ago and she was fierce! People in the audience were really rowdy (the club had just played the 1999 winner, Sweden’s “Take Me To Your Heaven,” for God’s sake!) but she managed to quiet down a room full of queens instantly.

She seriously sounds like an angel and doesn’t need any commentary from me. My one gripe isn’t with her, but with her new video (below). I could have done without all the digital clouds, pastel light and swirling nebula. It looks like a Scientology recruitment video.
