Tonight the search for the next Icelandic Eurovision representative started, when the first semifinal of Söngvakeppnin 2020 took place. Five acts competed for the two places in the final:
- Kid Isak – Ævintýri
- Brynja Mary – Augun þín
- DIMMA – Almyrkvi
- Elísabet – Elta þig
- Ísold & Helga – Klukkan tifar
After all five acts had been heard, it was time for the televoters to decide which two acts deserved the places in the final of Söngvakeppnin 2020. After the votes were counted, it became clear that it was DIMMA and Ísold & Helga who will continue the contest. Congratulations! You can listen to the two qualified songs here:
