Tonight we saw the first semi final Söngvakeppnin 2019. A total of five acts performed, with two acts qualifying directly to the final. The results were determined by a mix of 50% televote and 50% jury vote.
The five acts taking part in semi final 1 were:
Hatari – "Hatrið mun sigra" - QUALIFIED
Hera Björk – "Eitt andartak" - QUALIFIED
Kristina Skoubo Bærendsen – "Ég á mig sjálf"
Þórdís Imsland – "Nú og hér"
Daníel Óliver – "Samt ekki"
Hera Björk and Hatari were the top two scoring acts this evening and have thus qualified to the final. Tune in next week to find out which two acts will go on to complete the final line-up!
