Iceland is famous for its volcanoes, geysers and sagas, but also for great musicians. Even though she is taking 'one step at a time', Maria Olafs already has a promising career. She is a 22-year-old actress, singer and songwriter, but also this year's representative from Iceland in 2015 Eurovision Song Contest. "I'm so excited. I can hardly wait to perform on the stage", Maria told Eurovision.tv, right after she got out of dressing room wearing a champagne-rosa dress, which makes her look like a little fairy.
This is a really big event. But I'm not nervous, at least not now because it's just our first rehearsal. Still, really looking forward to performing on the Eurovision stage, Maria Olafs from Iceland added.
We have a tradition at home. My mom and I usually watch the Eurovision, as my father is busy. We have a farm and at that time our sheep give birth to small lambs. After the show is over we usually go and play with them, Maria said during the Meet and greet event at the Weiner Stadthalle.
