#ICELAND: Svala wins the Söngvakeppnin ticket to Kyiv
Icelandic national final Söngvakeppnin has just finished, and Svala will be going to Kyiv in May with the song ‘Paper’.
Svala Björnvinsdóttir beat Daði Freyr Perúrsson in the superfinal, after they won a combined jury and televote.
Here’s her official video.
Iceland has yet to win the Eurovision Song Contest. Their best results were second places in 1999 (Selma with ‘All out of luck) and 2009 (Yohanna with ‘Is it true?’).
Do you like this song? How do you think it will do in Kyiv in May?
