Tonight we saw the last five semi-finalists battle it out for the last two tickets to the Söngvakeppnin 2020 final! A couple of familiar names; Matti Matt and Daði Freyr, and a few new ones; Íva, Hildur Vala and Nína. Five acts competed, and the top two qualified for the grand final.
The two acts in bold qualified for the final.
- Gagnamagnið – Daði Freyr og Gagnamagnið
- Fellibylur – Hildur Vala
- Oculis Videre – Íva
- Ekkó – Nína
- Dreyma – Matti Matt
As always, RÚV had the option of awarding a wildcard, if they felt that there was an additional song that deserved to be in the final. It has been close to a demand from the Eurovision interested public this past week, that the wildcard come into play. And most people have wanted Elísabet to get it.
And tonight we got our answer; RÚV decided they wanted a five song final, so they did use the wildcard. The decision was taken to give it to Nína. The running order for the final has not been announced yet, but the five finalists are:
- Ísold og Helga
- Daði Freyr og Gagnamagnið
Söngvakeppnin will now take a weekend off, before the big final which takes place in Laugardalshöll on 19 February. We will be back with the runningorder and language selections as soon as they are announced.
What is your favorite in the final? Do you think one of these songs might be a potential Eurovision winner?
