Five acts take the stage on Saturday 8 February in the hope of advancing to the grand final of Söngvakeppnin 2020 and thus get the chance to represent Iceland in Rotterdam. We have a wide range of music here and its rather difficult to chose from this eclectic bunch of both well-known musicians and relative newcomers.
The format is no different than before, with two songs qualifying from each heat as well as — we assume — a wild card chosen by a professional jury. The latter has not been confirmed just yet, but we’ll act as though it has.
All the songs will be performed in Icelandic in the semi-finals, so we’re only showing the Icelandic version in this poll, with DIMMA, Daði og Gagnamagnið, Kid Isak and Matti Matt being the acts that will be keeping everything in Icelandic should they make it to the final.
But if you want to hear the rest of the songs in English as well, you can listen to our Spotify playlist.
Hatari won all our Iceland polls with a landslide last year and now we’re eager to know who you think should qualify from semi-final one of Söngvakeppnin 2020.
As always, you can vote for as many acts as you like. But you can only vote one time. So, make it count!
