Maria Olafs — Iceland’s pixie-liscious Eurovision 2015 singer — has made no secret of the all-star talent on her team. But her backing vocalist and Iceland 2010 act Hera Bjork actually missed the first rehearsal in Vienna due to illness. Thankfully all is now well and you don’t have to call of your bets. wiwiblogger William caught up with Maria at the Nordic Party on Friday, and she told us that Hera has now made it to Vienna and is back on her feet. Hera, of course, isn’t the only former Icelandic star on team Maria. 1999 runner-up Selma has done the choreography. With her own talents and those of her team, we’ve no doubt Maria is heading for the Iceland Eurovision hall of fame. But, as we find out below, she’ll be returning to her part-time job at Zara first!

I really do not desire to make anyone feel annoyed or hurt their feelings..

@Mario
I appreciate how you are so open and I think it’s really great and courageous.
But sometimes it’s like you’re afraid of heterosexuals, and I feel like if someone did what you did about straight love they would be labelled as homophobic.
