Iceland’s Songavkeppnin Show 1: Results!

Greta Salome Iceland Eurovision 2016Iceland’s Eurovision bid kicked off last night when the first semi final was staged with six of the twelve acts competing live. Three of these acts would advance and the other three were eliminated.

Advancing to the final in a fortnight’s time were Karlotta Sigurdardottir, Erna Hronn Olafsdottir & Hjortur Traustason, as well as former Icelandic Eurovision representative Greta Salome.

Sigga Eyrun Iceland Eurovision 2016

                              Sigga Eyrun goes ‘Kreisi’ at Songvakeppnin

Unfortunately my personal favourite song in the contest, Sigga Eyrun’s ‘Kreisi’ complete with bizarrely brilliant staging which saw Sigga sing alongside a demonic eyed woman obsessed with pong video game and another dancer in drag, did not advance. Nor did Ingolfur Þórarinsson or EVA.

Semi Final 1 (6th Feb)

Advanced:

Erna Hrönn Ólafsdóttir & Hjörtur Traustason- ‘Hugur minn er’ (My mind is)

Karlotta Sigurðardóttir- ‘Óstöðvandi’ (Unstoppable)
