The Icelandic selection for the Eurovision Song Contest has just come to an end and my colleague Keith Borg-Micallef commended the broadcaster on a beautiful showcase of talent this evening with all of the songs that made it through to the final worthy of representing the small Scandinavian nation although in the end the main favourite was quite decided only leaving a spot for the runner-up which proved to be quite an interesting twist so to speak especially due to the fact that many people had thought that it was two horse race battle, only to end up featuring a song which was not on anyone's radar so to speak therefore once more surprising many viewers.

Following a somewhat lengthy showcase which features once too many the recap for this years' edition of the Söngvakeppni Sjónvarpsins, the presenters came out and introduced the family of last years' composer who tragically died just before he got to sing his self-penned entry to the public. A group of friends continued his legacy and went onto win and represent Iceland, reaching the finals and finished in a mid-table position. This year, the country will be represented by a duet made up of Greta Salóme and Jónsi, the latter of which has already represent the nation back in 2004 with the song 'Heaven' languishing in a bottom position despite a superb performance. The song that they will be performing is entitled 'Mundu Eftir Mér' and it is quite charming and enchanting. This is already a favourite with many fans. Stay tuned for more i nformation only on ESCflashmalta.
