Iceland: RÚV reveal 2017 Söngvakeppnin’s hopefuls, listen to the songs!

Back in September and before the deadline of application period concluded, Iceland’s public broadcaster RÚV announced the dates for this year’s edition of their traditional and annual song competition Söngvakeppnin.

Today they have revealed the acts that will be featured at this year’s competition trying to get the right to represent Iceland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Ukraine.

You can find the line-up for this year’s competition and listen to the songs below:

The semifinals will take place in Háskólabíó, on February 25 and March 4, while the final will be held on March 11 in Laugardalshöllin, Iceland’s national indoor arena.

Unfortunately and despite being a fan favorite for two years in-a-row, Iceland did not make it to the final for the last two years with María Olafs and Greta Salóme. Will they finally get the fans’ music taste besides?

Stay tuned for more updates on this year’s Söngvakeppnin, the Icelandic national selection process!

About Adrián Valiente (Spain)

Adrián Valiente (Spain)

I love the Eurovision Song Contest not only because of its amazing production but it also gives me the chance to discover new music every year.
I’ve been watching it since 2002, since then I became a huge follower, mostly because of the interest TVE put on it with Rosa from Spain.
I’ve attended the contest several times in the last few years. I also attended the Junior Eurovision in Malta and Bulgaria where we lived an amazing experience thanks to all delegations and PBS/BNT organising team.
