Iceland is one step closer to selecting its contestant for this year’s Eurovision song contest, with five Icelandic artists selected over the weekend to continue competing.

The process for selecting Iceland’s Eurovision contests begins with two semi-finals, held February 18 and 25. Now, with both semi-final rounds over, the contestants will compete in the final contest, to be aired this March 4.

 

The newly selected finalists include Sigga Ózk, BRAGI, Diljá, Langi seli og skuggarnir, and Celebs.

Notably, despite the popularity enjoyed by the song contest in Iceland, Iceland has yet to win a Eurovision since it first participated in 1986. Iceland’s best performances so far have included Selma (1999) and Yohanna (2009), in which Iceland placed second.

The 67th Eurovision Song Contest will take place this May at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool, England.
