12 acts started out in Söngvakeppnin 2018. After two semi-finals, that number has become six. Now, it is almost time for Iceland to choose its representative for Lisbon.
The final of Söngvakeppnin will take place in Laugardalshöllin on this Saturday, March 3. All six acts will perform again, then a top two will be chosen by a 50/50 jury and televote. After the top two have been revealed, they’ll perform again in the superfinal, where the winner will be determined by 100% televote.
In the semi-finals, all acts had to sing in Icelandic, but in the final the songs will be performed in the language intended for the big Eurovision stage. Most of the acts have chosen to change their songs into English, but two — Heimilistónar and Dagur Sigurðsson — have chosen to stick to the Icelandic mother-tongue.
