Posted 21 January 2012 at 22:36

Last week, in the first semi-final, we saw a familiar face progress to the final: Jónsi, who represented Iceland in 2004, qualified with his duetting partner Gréta Salóme, as well as the group Blár Opal.
This week, Regína Ósk Óskarsdóttir was back on stage - she was the female half of Euroband, who represented Iceland in the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest in Belgrade, finishing in 14th place in the Final with This Is My Life.
Out of the five competing acts tonight, two have qualified for the final due to a 50/50 decision of televoting and an expert jury. This is the complete line-up of the show (qualifiers in bold):
  • Guðrún Árný Karlsdóttir - Minningar
  • Ellert Jóhannsson - Ég Kem Með
  • Regína Ósk - Hjartað Brennur
  • Simbi & Hrútspungarnir - Hey
  • Rósa Birgitta Ísfeld - Stund Með Þér
The third semi final of Söngvakeppni Sjónvarpsins will take place next Saturday, on January 28th.
