Ari Ólafsson

Six songs got through two semi finals to battle it out for business class seats with Icelandair to Lisbon.

There were two rounds of voting. The first combined public and jury votes - just don't ask me how the jury points were decided because it confused the hell out of me. All I know is that two songs went through.

There was then a very long pause before the second round 'superfinal' with two songs took place, and that was followed by another round of voting. (and apparently, a very popular prostrate cancer advert by all accounts according to Twitter). And then the result appeared ...

Ari also wins 3 MILLION ISK - which sounds a lot until you convert it and find out it's about £22,000. A tidy sum, but it's more conservatory-building than life-changing. I wonder if that is more than when he competed in the Voice of Iceland.

Of course, you'll want to hear it ...
