The Icelandic national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest known as the 'Söngvakeppni Sjónvarpsins 2012' commenced three weeks ago and the finalists have all been chosen but the broadcaster responsible for the participation in the music event, RÚV, made an announcement yesterday stating that one of the acts will be dropping out but due to the fact that the song comprised of trio, there will still be another two left and they will be the ones to carry the song in the final. The decision was somewhat unanimous because the case which the artist brought up was considered rational. In fact, the singer in question is Greta Salóme who was set to compete with two songs.

Greta Salóme first made it through to the last round of the competition alongside Jonsi and still remain as favourites to win the competition following an astounding performance of the song 'Mundu Eftir Mér'. One has to believe that this the right decision as she puts all of her concentration on this track whilst remaining the songwriter behind the other. The song which she will not be performed is 'Aldrei Sleppir Mér' as sung in the last semi-final of the Icelandic selection. Since 2008, Iceland have always been in the final even achieving a runner-up finish in 2009 thanks to Yohanna and her song 'Is It True?'. The final will be aired next Saturday, 11th February 2012 and will be covered live by ESCflashmalta so stay tuned for more information.
