Let the games begin! Following tonight’s second semi-final, we now know the seven finalists which will compete in Söngvakeppnin’s grand final next Saturday. Tonight, Iceland chose three more songs to advance, along with the jury’s wild card pick.
The first one to be called on stage was Alda Dís Arnardóttir with their song “Augnablik”. The second name out of the envelope was Elísabet Ormslev and “Á ný”. And last but by no means least was Þórdís Birna Borgarsdóttir and Guðmundur Snorri Sigurðarson and their song “Spring yfir heiminn”. The wildcard song is still to be confirmed.
Update 13:50 CET: RÚV have announced that there will be no wildcard finalist this year. The jury didn’t think it was necessary to add a seventh song to the final.
Alda Dís Arnardóttir “Augnablik”
Elísabet Ormslev “Á ný”
Þórdís Birna Borgarsdóttir and Guðmundur Snorri Sigurðarson “Spring yfir heiminn”
