This same Greta also wrote the song Elísabet Ormslev is competing with. Elísabet took part in The Voice Iceland and happens to be the daughter of Helga Möller, who was part of ICY, Iceland’s first ever representatives in the Eurovision Song Contest singing Gleðibankinn in 1986.
Pálmi Gunnarsson was part of ICY as well and Alda Dís Arnardóttir has won Iceland Got Talent and has stated it’s her dream to represent Iceland in the Eurovision Song Contest someday.

There will be two semi-finals, on the 6th and 13th of February, featuring six songs each. Of every semi-final 3 songs will proceed to the final on February 20. A special jury, however, will be choosing a song that didn’t make it initially and give it a wild card to the final.
