Cool heads will be at a premium in Iceland this evening as six acts compete to climb onboard the longship to Lisbon. Yes, the climax of Söngvakeppnin 2018 starts at 20:45 CET.
These are the six who’ll grapple for glory tonight in Reykjavik’s Laugardalshöll Arena:
- Fókus hópurinn – Battleline
- Attan – Here for you
- Ari Ólafsson – Our choice
- Heimilistónar – Kúst og fæjó
- Aron Hannes – Golddigger
- Dagur Sigurðarson – Í stormi
A televote will propel two acts to the Superfinal. That mano a mano showdown will then decide who wins the ticket south to Portugal in May.
So who’ll get Lucky like Leif and who’ll see Red like Erik? Who’ll give us a bit of Ragna-Rock to remember? And who’ll Skald the opposition with a really scorching performance?
Why not watch the full saga develop on our Multi-Window Live Feedback?
