Iceland try to be less controversial – Lets see how that played – First Semi Results

After the telling off Icelandic broadcaster RUV got last year after Hatari’s flag shenanigans in the green room, it seems that they have decided to play it safer this year by not going out on such a large limb and playing it a bit safer.

There is no change to the structure of Songvakeppnin this year.  Two semi finals of 5 songs with the top two going through by the medium of televoting.  A professional jury will then pick one of the non qualifying songs to go through as a wild card and all of them will then sing one last time on leap day, Saturday 29th February.

Tonight the first five songs listed below all had a little bit of a sing song and the result delivered by those wacky Icelanders is listed below.

1The Black Mamba"Love Is on My Side"Qualified
2Valéria"Na mais profunda saudade"Qualified
3mema."Claro como água"Eliminated
