I am really excited that Daníel Óliver is doing this, especially as I was hoping since he is living in Sweden he would have got to do Melodifestivalen.

Gave these a listen and semi 2 is FAR better than the first. My utmost favourite is Cadem - Fyrir alla, which is the group Daniel Oliver is involved in. But I also love 'Augnablik' and 'Aldrei of seint' too so would be happy with those winning.

I feel Iz will like Sunday- Fjaðrir. I quite like it actually, it's like a gothic CHVRCHES.

Finally listening to the songs.

'Augnablik' was pretty good. Not as good as its 2013 predecessor obviously but what is! How is it not at least through to the Final though?!

'Aldrei of seint' is rather GREAT, isn't it? So anthemic and very Iceland ESC~

'Fjaðrir'. OH MY. That production was something I never expected to see in THIS selection out of all places. AMAZING.

'Lítil skref' is a very good pop song as well.

4 at least 'good' entries out of 12. SUCCESS *.* Iceland got their groove back after a shitty year yay



'Fjaðrir' to win YASSSSSSS

I didn't tune in on Sat (because i've been surprisingly uninvested in Eurovision this year thus far with so much going on in real life recently [MF will alter this of course]). Can anybody confirm whether the red telephone and 'bring your own chair' 25-strong studio audience were still in tact?

1:50. Look at the amount of lights in the audience! ohmy.gif

It seems they have finally managed to afford bringing more people in now that they have only two semifinals!

Given the recent record Iceland will leave Fjaðrir in like 4th place in the final. Which will be an injustice of the highest rank. This is a true Eurovision Top 10 opportunity. Especially if they translate it into English. Although I love the Icelandic version a lot.
