In a few hours we will know all the finalists in Söngvakeppnin 2016, and here you can get to know one of the possible finalists, Alda Dís, a bit better. She opens up about doubting herself, then gaining confindence and now going for her long time dream of performing on the Eurovision stage!

And as so often before; there is live music!

Listen to Alda singing one of her favorite song for us, while playing her brand new ukulele.

And here is an acoustic performance of the Icelandic version of her song, which is the one we will hear in tonight’s semifinal.

If she qualifies for next Saturday’s final, she will sing the English version.


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
