Söngvakeppnin 2017 began in Iceland on Saturday, and we saw Aron Hannes, Arnar Jónsson and Rakel Pálsdottir and Rúnar Eff win the first three places in the final. Erna Mist, Hildur and Júli Heiðar Halldórsson and Þórdís Birna Borgarsdóttir all fell by the wayside. It was tough.
But now we must look to the future, and specifically Söngvakeppnin’s second semi-final, which takes place on March 4th. The Wiwi Jury has already worked its way through the twelve entries, heaping praise (and some shade) on the finalists. Svala Björgvinsdóttir is our top pick for Kyiv, but what do you think? Would you rather place your trust in Sólveig, or have you been hypnotised by Aron Brink?
You can listen to all six semi-final two entries below, and then vote for your favourites. As the songs will be sung only in Icelandic in the semi-finals (but then in English at the final), below you will find both the Icelandic and English versions for your consideration.
You can vote for as many songs as you like, but you can only vote once, so be sure to tick the boxes for each song you like before hitting the submit button. Make it count people!
