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’.
