Iceland selects entry for Turin

After two semifinals, there were still five candidates in the race to represent Iceland in Turin.

Two candidates qualified for each semi-final and the duo Amarosis received the wildcard. In both semifinals, all songs were sung in the Icelandic language.

These were the contestants and the songs:

  • Stefan Óli – Ljosið
  • Sigga, Beta and Elín – Með hækkandi sól
  • Reykjavikurdætur – Turn This Around
  • Katla – Þaðan af
  • Amarosis – Don’t You Know

The five first had to convince the televoters and the jury to qualify for the super final for which the top 2 qualify. After that, the televoters determined that the trio Sigga, Beta and Elín could win the Icelandic national final with the song ‘Með hækkandi sól’.
