Eurovision fans in Norway and Sweden voted Iceland’s 2020 contest submission as their favourite of all 41 songs that were submitted this year, RÚV reports. Though the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest was cancelled this year, many countries held special television programs where they voted on a favourite song.

Had COVID-19 not intervened, Eurovision would have been held in Rotterdam last week, an event made all the more exciting because Iceland’s Daði Freyr and Gagnamagnið were strongly favoured to win. Eurovision producers instead organised a special live show titled Europe: Shine a Light, featuring sections of all 41 songs that would have competed this year. Daði Freyr sent in a special greeting to the program, charming his fans once again.

Icelandair followed along with Daði Freyr at Iceland’s national Söngvakeppnin competition earlier this year.
