These Icelandic fans are excited

Post-Eurovision Depression is hitting Iceland, just like every other nation in Europe. But Icelanders are a happy bunch in general, and we don’t let a little summer depression stop us or our love for Eurovision. The nation actually devours everything Eurovision related, all year round, and those who say otherwise are lying. Fact. 95% of the Icelandic people watched the final this year. The other 5% said they were watching Game of Thrones, but they weren’t. They were eagerly practising Måns’ dance moves, so they could show off on the dance floor during the summer. Here are the top five reasons why Iceland is the best place to be a Eurovision fanatic.

1. You never fly solo amongst Icelandic Eurofanatics.

Eurofanatics tend to seek each other out.

And once they meet, they’ll unite in sheer Eurovision happiness.

2. We’re optimistic by nature.

This is done every year before the semi finals:

And then followed by this:

Except this year, which brings us to reason number 3.

3. Quick recovery is our trademark.

OK, so our masterplan of music didn’t work. Oh, the tragedy! So for five minutes, we were like this:

But then we brush off the negativity and decide that dwelling on the past is soooo yesterday, and we do this:

4.  We’re extremely loyal.

If you befriend an Icelandic Eurofanatic, you’ve got a friend for life. You’ll never experience this:

But plenty of this:

5. Icelandic Eurovision parties are epic!

There’s a big chance, you’ll witness this:

And this:

And most definitely THIS:

This is just a wee glimpse of what its like to be a Eurovision fanatic in Iceland. But it goes so much deeper. We welcome everybody, and we judge nobody. Because in the end, Eurovision is about love. Don’t you agree?

@Mario I find a lot of your comments helpful, but then I see this “I give you my G(ay)ood L(ove)uck” It will definitely bring WiWiBloggs down if there are young readers, Eurovision is for all ages, but please, do not make it homosexual or sexual, we went through enough of that in 2009. (I was actually there).

@ Harry
Well you shouldn’t get upset & have an issue with this..
You ask me really why?? I really do not need you any explanation for that & i do not do any harm at all with that..
It really bugs me that you have a problem with that..
NO i do not see it at all as unnacceptable in my own view..
And since its my own comments i will not ask for permission by others like you about what im gonna write here & what not..

This sort of comment is completely unnecessary and in my view unacceptable. I have nothing against you Mario but I feel this sort of stuff is just pointless! Why?

It is like a ritual to me…I really enjoy it & its fun for me.. <3 Well tone of my comments are just OK.. You should had already noticed that.. If you want to accuse me that all of too many of my comments contain s*xual words or gay homosexual stuff then i'm gonna lose you on that.. How many times i'm writing comments like that but not all the time or so frequently.. @ So you can't be the… Read more »

Mario can you read a wiwibloggs article and not comment on it? serious question. also is it possible for you to not make a comment about sex or being gay?

I think his ridiculous comments undermine the value of the stories and reports here.

The tv ratings were huge! 95% of the icelanders were all watching EuroVision!
And given the fact that the others 5% were watching an extremely popular tv show like *Game Of Thrones* makes it even more impressive!
From the 400.000 population of Iceland more than 350.000 were tuned in Vienna’s Vision Final..!

Really pity that they did not watch their own Maria Olaffs in the final..

You 're hurting me! :P :P

Was really unfortunate that Iceland didn’t qualify to the final this year and marked the first time in ages that Iceland missed the final sadly..
Iceland has to win in Vision at last!

Im wishing to dear Icelanders 4 their next 29th participation in Vision to be the lucky one! <3 🙂

Is Eurovision really that popular in Iceland? 95 percent of the TV audience watched Eurovision? I kinda adore Icelandic artists from Mugison, Soley, Rokkuro, Samaris, Sin Fang, Retro Stefson, and I do really hope that someday one of them would represent Iceland in Eurovision.

Just Love Sylvia Night :)
