What happened to Iceland? They always seemed to get Eurovision, but then things went wrong. So often they missed out on a place at the Grand Final by the skin of someone's teeth.

That's not going to happen this time around. Ari Ólafsson will miss it by a country mile.

'Our choice' takes dreary to new levels. It's the sort of song the Irish thought unworthy of their national finals in the mid eighties.

Ari is sweet enough, but in the preview video he sounds to be struggling - and this is the clip his broadcaster sent to show him at his best!

For me, this is down there with Slovenia and Serbia as the worst songs of the year.
