Iceland is famous for its hot springs, geysers and volcanoes. The majority of the population live in the capital Reykjavik. Iceland joined the Eurovision Song Contest in 1986.

Iceland made its Eurovision debut in 1986 and is yet to win the contest. In 1999 Selma finished second with her song All Out Of Luck and ten years later 2009, Yohanna equalled this success with her ballad Is It True? 

Iceland boasts strong viewing figures for the Eurovision Song Contest. In 2016 the country delivered the largest viewing share of all 42 participating countries with 95.3% of those watching TV in the country watching the Grand Final.
