Iceland’s Eurovision Song Contest broadcaster RUV has unveiled the video for ‘Unbroken’.

Iceland’s 2015 act Maria Ólafsdóttir won Iceland’s national selection at the start of the year with shimmering ballad ‘Unbroken’.

Iceland’s dramatic video unfolds at an abandoned factory where Maria dances, commands the camera’s attention with the power of her voice and absolutely shines.

Though the backing dancers aren’t going to Eurovision, it seems that backing dancers have been included for the music video although the spotlight is firmly on Iceland’s shining starlet Maria.

We love this, Iceland are putting hella effort in for 2015 and y’all we could seriously be going to Reykjavik in 2015!

What do you all think? Is Maria’s video the bomb or is she a bust? Comments below!

We have such a high level of quality this year that I truly doubt Iceland will reach top10. It is a decent song, but in comparison with other songs it sounds dated, like from 2002-2005. I still can’t handle the fact that Eurovision wasn’t organised in Reykjavik in 2010:(

Icelandic version is much better -___- But Maria will qualify to the final and reach the top 10 for sure. She’s cute 🙂

Video is cool. I think it moves out of my Bottom 3, but I’m still not a fan. Lyrics are too repetitive for me, otherwise it’s really not bad.

What are y’all talking about? This isn’t a ballad, it’s firmly in pop anthem territory.

Anyway, I got used to the “A step at a time” lyric, and I love this song, so I think I’ll get used to the change.

To me the change to One Step At A Time is a significant change but it makes the song make more sense. I much better understand the context of Unbroken. I also like the syncopation that it drives.

Overall is an improvement from the original, but the change from “A step at a time” to “ONE step at a time”, even if it’s just a little detail, it’s quite significant, it makes it sound more rushed now, in my opinion it had a more smooth flow before. If it was repeated just once or twice I wouldn’t mind, but Maria repeats it during the entire song!
Anyway, I’ll know I’ll get used to it eventually, but my first impression is: that was a mistake.

This is Iceland’s best entry for a while. Well done Maria and all of the team. 🙂

I don’t know if I like the “one step at a time” instead of “a step at a time” I know it’s minor, but it just sounds too awkward

This is a mix between a good quality ballad and a pop song. It’s still my #2 and the song doesn’t need any editing to move it down. If the camera focused on Maria with the backing dancers in shot in Vienna like in this music video, it would please a lot more people.

If the EBU wants Iceland to win, put them right after Finland. If the EBU wants Finland to win, put them right after Iceland.

Great revamp! The only problem for me is that it sounds like she sings “Unboken” and skip the r. I’ll probably get over that, but it annoys me now.

I really loved the song, and the changes were minor, but now I just don’t see the magic.

Lol ballad? Poor classification is the reason people are complaining of too many ballads, one of which this is not.
