This year’s edition of Söngvakeppnin has just come to an end an we can find out the act representing Iceland in Vienna, she is no other than María Ólafsdóttir!
María Ólafsdóttir will perform “Unbroken” in the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015.
7 candidates have competed at today’s final:
- María Ólafsdóttir – Unbroken
- SUNDAY – Feathers
- CADEM – Fly
- Haukur Heiðar Hauksson – Milljón augnablik
- Elín Sif Halldórsdóttir – Dance Slow
- Friðrik Dór – Once Again
- Björn og félagar – Piltur og stúlka
The winner has been selected by a mix of a professional jury panel and televote (50/50) through the first round. In addition to this, another televoting round was opened to solely decide the winner between the top two finalists (Fridrik and María). They had to perform their entries in the same language as they wanted to do it in Vienna if they won. Now María will do it in English language (Unbroken) instead of the Icelandic version (Lítíl Skréf).
Do you agree with the Icelandic audience?
Congratulations guys and see you in Vienna! Stay tuned for the latest news about the Icelandic participation at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna.
