Our next signing for the London Eurovision Party 2016 is Iceland’s returning Eurovision contestant Greta Salóme!

Greta Salóme / Iceland - London Eurovision Party 2016

After taking part at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 as part of a duo with Jónsi, finishing 20th place in the Final, Greta earned the right to represent Iceland again, this time on her own, with “Hear Them Calling”.

Greta released her first album, titled In the Silence, on 16 November 2012, which contained both the original Icelandic version and the English version that went to Eurovision of “Never Forget”

“Raddirnar” qualified Greta to the final of Söngvakeppnin 2016 and also secured a #3 hit on the Icelandic chart. However, in the final, Greta opted to switch her language to English and “Hear Them Calling” went on to win the televote and the ticket to Stockholm as well as becoming #1 on the Icelandic chart.

You can watch Greta’s performance of “Hear Them Calling” from the Söngvakeppnin final below:

Technical Lead: I am a huge pop music fan and I love Rihanna, Years & Years, Sia, Zara Larsson and Sam Smith. However, more importantly, I love Eurovision. Melodifestivalen is my favourite National Final and if things look out of place on the website, it's most definitely my fault.
