After a top-four finish in 2021, Iceland are hoping to keep up the momentum at Eurovision 2022. The island’s search for their act continues with semi-final two of Söngvakeppnin 2022, scheduled for Saturday 5 March.

Five acts will battle it out for two qualification spots to the grand final.

Listen to the five competing songs to refresh your mind. In the semi-finals, all acts must sing in Icelandic; therefore, it’s this version of each song that we’ve featured below.

Söngvakeppnin 2022: Semi-final two songs

Hanna Mia and the Astrotourists – “Séns með þér”

Katla – “Þaðan af”

Markéta Irglová – “Mögulegt”

Reykjavikurdaetur – “Tökum af stað”

Suncity and Sanna – “Hækkum í botn”

Poll: Who should qualify from semi-final two of Iceland’s Söngvakeppnin 2022?

You can vote for as many of the semi-final two acts as you would like to. But you can only vote once – so choose wisely!

Söngvakeppnin 2022: Show details

Söngvakeppnin 2022 features two semi-finals and one grand final. The hosts of all three shows are Björg Magnúsdóttir, Jón Jónsson and Ragnhildur Steinunn Jónsdóttir.

In each semi-final, all the acts must perform their song in Icelandic. Those that reach the grand final must then perform in the language they intend to sing at Eurovision, should they win Söngvakeppnin 2022 and be selected as Iceland’s entry.

The results of the semi-finals will purely be down to the public. A televote will choose two acts to qualify for the grand final. Of the six non-qualifiers, a jury will then select one wildcard act to complete the five-song grand final.

In the first round of the grand final, a 50/50 split of viewer and jury votes will determine the two superfinalists. The final decision in the superfinal will be made solely by public vote.

At Eurovision 2022, Iceland are scheduled to perform in the second half of the first semi-final on 10 May.

oh NO it seems I am in a slight minority on Suncity and Sanna but I am so addicted to their song, it is one of my most replayed of the NF season. I just think it sounds so cool and fun. I love it.

My faves are Hanna Mia and Suncity & Sanna. Maybe my second choice could qualify, but Hanna Mia has the least chances. I’m fine with Reykjavikurdaetur qualifying too.

Fun fact_ Markéta Irglová is originally from the Czech republic and in 2008 she won an Oscar (!!!) for her song “Falling Slowly” with Glen Hansard

The “Once” soundtrack was also Grammy nominated. Both it and the film are amazing.

Am I alone in thinking that a Reykjavikurdaetur and Hatari collab would be really awesome?

These are all very good; I must say that this semi looks stronger than semi 1. Katla and Reykjavikurdaetur would be my choices here, but I must say I would chose any of the other three for the jury wild card over the ones in semi 1.
