It’s been a week since the 12 semifinalists in Söngvakeppnin 2016 were published, and most of us have listened to them a few times. We have managed to puzzle the two semis together, and now we’d like to know; Which three entries do you think will qualify from each of the semis?

Though, I have to warn you; trying to predict how Icelanders are going to vote in Söngvakeppnin (or anywhere else, tbh…) is a risky business…they sometimes do the most surprising things! And remember; vote for the three songs you *think* will qualify, not the ones you *want to* see in the final.


Which three acts will qualify from Söngvakeppni semi-final 1?

Hljómsveitin Eva – Ég sé þig
Ingó – Fátækur námsmaður
Erna Hrönn & Hjörtur – Hugur minn er
Sigga Eyrún – Kreisí
Karlotta – Óstöðvandi
Greta Salóme – Raddirnar

I'm Norwegian, presently living in Iceland. My mom loves Eurovision, and always let me stay up to watch the contest since before I can remember, so I'm "second generation Eurovision lunatic". My musical god is David Bowie, so I'm obviously not into the stereotypical Eurovision songs. I prefer the rocky/bluesy/jazzy/ethnic songs over schlager and mainstream ballads, though I occasionally surprise myself (and others)... I HATE canned drums and "Cvet Z juga". Photo © Tobias König
