The people have spoken and you have chosen your winner of Söngvakeppnin 2023 and it is powerhouse vocalist Diljá who is your ultimate favourite.
Diljá will perform her aptly named song “Power” on Saturday evening and maybe she will make your dreams come true in the process and go on to represent Iceland in Liverpool come May.
She won the poll by a landslide, with just over 40% of the votes, whilst the party siblings in Celebs came in a distant second place with 18%.
Who should win Söngvakeppnin 2023 grand finals?
- Diljá – “Power” – 43,03% (472 votes)
- Celebs – “Doomsday Dancing” – 18,51% (203 votes)
- Sigga Ózk – “Dancing Lonely” – 16,96% (186 votes)
- Bragi – “Sometimes the world´s against you” -12,85% (141 votes)
- Langi Seli og Skuggarnir – “OK” – 8,65% (95 votes)
Total votes: 1097
The Söngvakeppnin 2023 final will air on Saturday 4 March, starting at 19:45 GMT (20:45 CET).
Voting will be done over two rounds. Firstly, a 50:50 split of points from an international jury and the public televoting will select two acts to move onto the superfinal.
In the superfinal, the public will be able to vote again for the winner, with the votes from the first round and superfinal being added together to determine the winner.
To add the icing to the cake, the Norwegian space wolves of Subwoolfer will make an appearance and most likely bring their alter-egos Gaute and Ben along for the ride.

Song of bragi is really good.
Doomsday Dancing is fantastically underrated!
This selection has some growers. At first I only liked “Doomsday Dance” and the duet that lost in the semi, but I have a positive impression of Dilja, Sigga and Bragi now. I just hope they don’t send “OK.”
pa-pa-pa-power looking good
Dilja ! I Hope !!! Sigga Ozk is good also.
