Söngvakeppnin 2019, Iceland's national selection for the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest, held its second and last semi-final in Reykjavik today. Five artists performed in the second live show, from which the TV viewers chose their two favourites: Friðrik Ómar, one half of Euroband, who represented Iceland in 2008, and Tara Mobee.
