Two Icelandic songs qualify for final

Iceland slightly altered the selection method for their 2009 Söngvakeppni Sjónvarpsins: the Nordic country will have four Semi-Finals with four songs each. The top two televote winners of these will then qualify for the final. The four songs competing tonight in the first Semi-Final were (qualifiers in bold):

  • Heiða Ólafsdóttir - Dagur Nýr
  • Ólöf Jara Skagfjörð - Hugur Minn Fylgir þér
  • Edgar Smári - The Kiss We Never Kissed  
  • Jóhanna Guðrún Jónsdóttir - Is It True 

Iceland reached the final in the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest in Belgrade when Euroband qualified from the 2nd Semi-final. Ultimately, Iceland reached the 14th place in the final.
