Today, decision time in Iceland!

After two semi-finals, it’s time to know who will wave the Icelandic flag in Stockholm!

The grand final of Söngvakeppnin 2016 will be held tonight live at the Laugardalshöll, the biggest venue ever used for the Icelandic national final.

These are the acts competing to represent Iceland at Eurovision 2016:


As previously announced, all participants were required to perform today the song in whichever language they intend to use at Eurovision, only one of them decided to keep the Icelandic version.

The winner of Söngavekeppnin 2016 will be decided after two voting rounds. In the first one, the six candidates will perform their songs and a 50-50 mix of televoting and regional jury will select the two acts which will advance to a superfinal. In the superfinal, both songs will be performed again and the overall winner will be chosen solely by televoting.

Ragnhildur Steinunn Jónsdóttir & Guðrún Dís Emilsdóttir will be in charge of hosting the show, which will feature some guest performances: Sandra Kim (Winner of Eurovision 1986), Loreen (Winner of Eurovision 2012) and former Icelandic participants performing a medley to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Söngvakeppnin.

Follow the Icelandic final at 21.00 CET on RUV:
