To find today’s Christmas song we have to go to the very opposite end of the Euroverse; from Australia to Iceland! Being one of the countries where Eurovision is the most popular, there are quite a few Icelandic artists who have participated more than once. One of them is Jónsi. However, the song we’re bringing you today is from his band Í svörtum fötum. Uptempo, fun and with a video that+s bound to make you smile, here is “Jólin eru að koma”!
As already mentioned, Jónsi has represented Iceland in the contest twice. The first time was in 2004, when he performed the big ballad “Heaven“, finishing in 19th place. He returned in 2012, in a duet with Greta Salóme, with another ballad, “Never Forget“. They qualified for the grand final, where they finished 20th.
