Two of them go to the final, along with one wildcard. In the final, the songs can be sung in any language. In the semifinals, they have to be sung in Icelandic. The show starts at 20.45 CET and you can watch it here. Tonight´s contestants are:

  1. Hera Björk sings “Við förum hæarra”
  2. Heiðrún Anna sings “Þjakaður af ást”
  3. Bashar Murad sings “Vestrið villt”
  4. Sigga Ózk sings “Um allan alheiminn”
  5. Maiaa sings “Fljúga burt”


Hera Björk represented Iceland in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Je ne sais quoi”. She took part in 2007 (semifinals), was the runner up in the 2009 Danish Melodi Grand Prix and 3rd in Söngvakeppnin 2019.

Sigga Ózk reached the final last year.

The connection from Palestinian Bashar Murad with Iceland is the fact that, in 2019, he collaborated with Hatari in the song “Klefi/Samed”. This is, however, his first attempt in Eurovision.
