Second Semifinalists for Iceland

After this past weekend’s exciting first Semifinal for Söngvakeppni Sjónvarpsins, Icelandic broadcaster RÚV has released the next group of five songs who will be in the running for the nation’s ticket to Baku this May.  The lucky semifinalists are:

Ellert Jóhannsson – “Ég kem með (I’ll Bring)”
Simbi og Hrútspungarnir- “Hey
Rósa Birgitta Ísfeld- “Stund með þér (A Moment With You)”
Regína Ósk Óskarsdóttir- “Hjartað brennur (My Heart Burns)”
Guðrún Árný Karlsdóttir- “Minningar (Memories)”

Fans might recognize the name (or voice) of Regína Ósk, as she was one half of Iceland’s performers from 2008, Euroband.  (Check out “This is My Life” to refresh your memory.)

Iceland’s Second Semifinal will be held this Saturday, January 14.
