The ten contestants have been released onto Spotify (following an early sneaky leak)

Brynja Mary “Augun žķn (In Your Eyes)”
Daši Freyr “Gagnamagniš (Think About Things)”
DIMMA “Almyrkvi”
Elķsabet “Elta žig (Haunting)”
Hildur Vala “Fellibylur”
Iva “Oculis Videre (Oculis Videre)”
Ķsold & Helga “Klukkan tifar (Meet Me Halfway)”
Kid Isak “Ęvintżri”
Matti Matt “Dreyma”
Nķna “Ekkó (Echo)”

Dadi Freyr nearly got the nod against Svala in 2017 and Matti Matt was a member of Sjonni's Friends in 2011 will be the most familiar to fellow euroqueens. Jafet may have more information if there's any hot new talent among the line-up but Dadi surely enters this as the favourite.

Very early I’d bet this will be between Daši and Elķsabet but the Kid Isak song is produced by a very popular hip hop artist so that might do something although to be transparent i haven’t listened to any of these yet. Dimma is a famous metal band (lol not again pls) and Hildur Vala is a former Idol winner. Matti is very famous but I doubt he’ll win unless he’s got an absolute bop but then again he’ll surely win the granny vote and is a sure fire finalist. Everyone else I have never heard of.

This is taking the early lead in Youtube views and generating a fair bit of Twitter hype



It's not totally my kind of music, but it's nice enough and would be the most interesting choice. Iceland shouldn't be shy about taking a risk after Hatari paid off so well so I hope it gets the nod

(She was on The Voice of Iceland a few years ago and no one turned!)

I wanted the song to end with a BANGGGGG but it didn't. This would've elevated it so much. sad.gif Oh well back to DNQ this year. Since I won't be in the country for this year's Eurovision they don't have much hope.

This is a pretty underwhelming selection, I really like Oculis Videre however and like Ekkó, but the latter isn't at all competitive.

I think we need to go with either Iva or Daši to do any damage in Rotterdam but I suppose we'll see on saturday how they perform live. IVA could definitely be a Top 10 entry in May if they play their cards right.

For anyone curious the following qualified from Semi 1:

DIMMA “Almyrkvi”
Ķsold & Helga “Klukkan tifar (Meet Me Halfway)”

It was simply a case of who actually performed well. DIMMA were actually pretty good but tbh we don't need another rock song just yet lol. I was fully expecting Elisabet to be a surefire finalist prior to the live show but man her vocals were wayyy off which is so strange because last time she was in the NF she slayed the vocals! These were eliminated:

Brynja Mary “Augun žķn (In Your Eyes)”
Elķsabet “Elta žig (Haunting)”
Kid Isak “Ęvintżri”
