Twelve singers will compete at Söngvakeppnin 2018. The winner will go on to represent Iceland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal.

The Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music unprofessionals — has sat down to review the 12 entries. Who will follow the likes of Greta Salóme and Svala and fly the Icelandic flag at Eurovision?

Our jury for Söngvakeppnin 2018 consists of 10 jurors. They come from Australia, Belgium, Hungary, New Zealand, Romania, Spain and the United Kingdom.

Each juror assesses each song independently, and awards each song a score from 0 to 10. Before calculating the Wiwi Jury verdict, we drop the highest and lowest scores to reduce potential bias and outliers.

We’ll be reviewing the songs one at a time over the coming days. You can read the reviews by clicking on the song title.
