After an eventful show in Háskólabíó, we now know the first two Söngvakeppnin 2019 finalists; Hatari with “Hatrið mun sigra” and “Eitt andartak” performed by Hera Björk.
Hatari in Icelandic in the final
Hatari’s song will stay in Icelandic in the final, while Hera Björk’s entry will be performed in English; “Moving On”. If you want to find out more about the two qualifying acts, check this article.
The past few years, RÚV have given us the most wonderful interval acts. So, in all corners of the Euroverse, people were looking forward to this year’s interval act. When Sigga and Grétar (Stjórnin) showed up, hopes soared. Instead we were treated to an act you would have to be/understand Icelandic to get. Singing the voting instructions is such a brilliant idea. Or not.
What do you think of tonight’s two qualifiers? Were they your favorites? Do you think one of these can win in Tel Aviv? Let us know in the comments or on social media; @escxtra
