Greta Salóme has won the Icelandic ticket to Stockholm. Her song Hear Them Calling managed to convince the Icelandic people in the superfinal. Interestingly enough, Greta didn’t win the first round of voting.

During that first round, Alda Dís won both the jury voting as well as the televoting: She had a 78 point gap in the televotes ahead of Greta Salóme. Now however wasn’t strong enough to keep the lead, with Hear Them Calling sneaking in front.

It will be Greta’s second attempt at the Eurovision Song Contest. Back in 2012, she already represented Iceland with Jónsi and their Never Forget. They didn’t make the top twenty, despite being an outside favourite. Only time will tell if Hear Them Calling will bring her a better result in Eurovision.

    Not my favourite Icelandic song ever but the visual presentation is great, particularly with the strobe lighting towards the end.

    Copy & Paste job. No originality, lets hope it bombs.
