You have been submitting your predictions for the final round of Eurovision Prediction 2022. In one of the three finals due to take place this week, you were asked to predict the winner of Söngvakeppnin 2022. Now, let’s take a look at who you collectively expect to win the Icelandic ticket to Turin!
Tonight, Iceland will select their Eurovision 2022 representative at the final of Söngvakeppnin 2022. Five songs will compete on March 12th. Two songs qualified from each of the two semi-finals after the public vote and one song was selected to the final as the wild card.
The winner will be determined through two rounds of voting. In the first round, a jury and the public will vote, with the two acts that receive the highest numbers of votes progressing to the Super Final. In the Super Final, the Icelandic public alone will determine the winner.
The competing songs are as follows:
- Amarosis – “Don’t You Know”
- Katla – “Þaðan af” (From there)
- Reykjavíkurdætur – “Turn This Around”
- Sigga, Beta & Elín – “Með hækkandi sól” (With the rising sun)
- Stefán Óli – “Ljósið” (The light)
Let’s take a look at who YOU predict they will choose!
During this round of Eurovision Prediction 2022, 287 of you have predicted who you think will take victory in Iceland. Without further ado, here are the entries that YOU have predicted to win in order of frequency, from most to least:
|Rank||Artist||Song||Number of predictions||Percentage|
|1||Reykjavíkurdætur||Turn This Around||181||63.1|
|2||Katla||Þaðan af (From there)||79||27.5|
|3||Sigga, Beta and Elín||Með hækkandi sól||16||5.6|
|4||Stefán Óli||Ljósið (The light)||10||3.5|
|5||Amarosis||Don’t You Know||1||0.3|
Söngvakeppnin did not take place last year, but previously our players have had a good record of predicting Icelandic results. In 2020, almost 2/3 of players predicted that Daði & Gagnamagnið would win with “Think About Things”. If you think that was a consensus, the year prior, almost 4/5 of players predicted that Hatari would win with “Hatrið mun sigra”!
It wasn’t all smooth sailing, though! Back in 2018, only one player correctly predicted Ari Ólafsson’s win, while almost 55% predicted that Aron Hannes would win with “Gold Digger”.
Members of the ESCXTRA team may be disappointed with this result, as they selected Katla with “Þaðan afas” their winner in our XTRA Decides feature.
After each national final, the points will be assigned and you will receive a rankings update via our Eurovision Prediction platform. Furthermore, we will make sure to notify you via our Eurovision Prediction Facebook page, our Eurovision Prediction Twitter page and here on the ESCXTRA website. The player that accumulates the most points after all the rounds have taken place will be crowned the winner of Eurovision Prediction 2022!
In 2021, our 363 prediction players predicted the correct national winners 7 out of 13 times. The year before, in 2020, 10 of out 27 times…an all-time low. To be fair, 2020 was a very unpredictable year in general. In 2019, our Eurovision Prediction players collectively predicted 16 out of 29 national final winners correctly. In 2018, your record was 19 out of 30.
So far, our players have guessed 10 out of 22 selections correctly. Let’s see how many of tonight’s three entries will have been predicted correctly.
With this being the last national finals of the 2022 season, this is your last time to secure some points!
