Iceland’s journey to Eurovision 2022 is soon to continue. Semi-final two of Söngvakeppnin 2022 gets underway on Saturday 5 March with five acts competing for two spots in the grand final.
Earlier on, we asked you to vote for your favourites from semi-final two.
We counted a total of 884 votes and now the results are in.
Katla is a favourite in Söngvakeppnin 2022 semi-final two
The first act you want to qualify to the Söngvakeppnin 2022 grand final is Katla. Her song “Þaðan af” picked up 270 votes, which is 30.54% of the total. Katla is a young singer and her time in the music industry has been relatively short so far. However, y’all still think she is destined to shine bright on the Söngvakeppnin stage.
Your other qualification spot would go to Reykjavíkurdætur. The all-female rap band earned 226 votes (25.57%) for their song “Tökum af stað”. They’ve been praising feminism and the power of womanhood since forming back in 2013. Now they’re bringing their message to Söngvakeppnin, and it’s one that our readers are jumping on board with.
If the results were decided by y’all, that would mean we’d have to say goodbye to Suncity and Sanna, Markéta Irglová and Hanna Mia & the Astrotourists.
Following the two semi-finals, one act will be given a jury wildcard to the grand final. If that act came from semi-final two, you would like it to be Suncity and Sanna, who finished third in the poll with “Hækkum í botn”.

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.
What do you make of the results? Is Katla also your top pick for semi-final two of Söngvakeppnin 2022? Let us know in the comments below.
Does Katla have account at any social media, anything? I can’t find her anywhere.
The best wildcard for the final would be Haffi Haff as he’s the LITERAL embodiment of it. Reykjavikurdaetur’s song stands out the most from this boring selection now but they NEED to change the lyrics. Also, they need to think about who they will send to Turin since they have more than 6 members.
I have a bad feeling my other favourite will stay ( suncity and Sana)
And I won’t know who deserves wildcard haffi or suncity and sanna
Suncity and Sana better qualify at least wildcard
