The first semifinal of Söngvakeppnin 2016 is tomorrow, and here we bring you our 4th semifinalist interview; Ingó! It’s not his first time in Söngvakeppnin, rather his third, though the first as both singer and songwriter.

We talked about growing up with Eurovision, the fact his favorite Eurovision entry is a Christmas songs, singing vs songwriting, Elvis, The Beatles and Bob Dylan…and much more!

And he brought his guitar along!


Here’s his entry, the only proper rock entry in the contest.

Here you can listen to his entry from 2009. Remember this?


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
