We’re reaching the critical moment. Who will succeed Hatari as Söngvakeppnin champions and grab the golden ticket to Rotterdam?
Five songs will compete for the ultimate prize in Laugardalshöll Arena on Saturday 28 February. It will be a star studded night. Hatari will perform, as will the Eurovision 2019 televote winners Norway’s KEiiNO.
But the main attractions are, of course, the five hopeful acts.
Will Daði and Gagnamagnið get their revenge this time around? Will IVA sing her way home to Rotterdam? Is it time for the symphonic metal of DIMMA? Could it be the girl power ballad from Ísold and Helga? Or will Nína simply outrun her competitors all the way to victory?
The rules for Söngvakeppnin are quite simple. All the acts will perform their song in their chosen language, be it English or Icelandic, the public and a carefully selected jury will decide on which two will reach the superfinal.
From there on, the song with the highest public vote wins.
No one is inventing the wheel here. But what do you think? Who do you want to see flying the Icelandic flag in Rotterdam? Take a little listen to the competing acts and make up your mind.
Then vote in our poll. Choose wisely, you can only vote ONE time.
