Six songs took part in the second semi-final of Söngvakeppnin 2017.

Three qualified for next week's final.

We also learned that one song from the two heats will get a jury 'wild card' place in the final. It went to Hildur with  “Bammbaramm”. Earlier this week, she made an official complaint to RUV about sound problems when she performed in the first semi-final.

Fandom has been on the side of Svala Björgvinsdóttir ever since preview clips emerged. Her song (Paper) is to be performed in English at the final next week.
