From Greece we head to Iceland, having last qualified for a Eurovision final in 2014, hopes are pinned on Ari Olafsson to bring the nation back to a Saturday night.
As ever 50% of the vote is being decided by national juries and 50% by you, the public. This creates the most accurate representation of a result likely to be seen in the final of the Eurovision Song Contest this May in Lisbon.
Each voting nation is represented by a jury consisting of past Eurovision, Junior Eurovision and national final participants. Each juror is asked to form a top 10 ranking of their favourite competing songs which is combined with the other jurors in their country. On the jury for Iceland are:
- Rakel Pals – Participated in Songvakeppnin 2018 with the song “Óskin mín”
- Fókus – Finished 5th in the final of Songvakeppnin 2018 with the song “Battleline”
The results of the Icelandic jury from 1 to 12 points is as follows:
- 1 point – Armenia – Sevak Khanagyan – Qami
- 2 points – Czech Republic – Mikolas Josef – Lie to Me
- 3 points – Germany – Michael Schulte – You Let Me Walk Alone
- 4 points – Lithuania – Ieva Zasimauskaite – When we’re old
- 5 points – Sweden – Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance You Off
- 6 points – Finland – Saara Aalto – Monsters
- 7 points – Austria – Cesar Sampson – Nobody But You
- 8 points – Israel – Netta Barzilai – Toy
- 10 points – Australia – Jessica Mauboy – We Got Love
- 12 points – Denmark – Rasmussen – Higher Ground
This means after thirteen juries the full results so far are follows:
- Israel – Netta Barzilai – Toy – 99 points
- Czech Republic – Mikolas Josef – Lie to Me – 68 points
- Sweden – Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance You Off – 60 points
- Australia – Jessica Mauboy – We Got Love – 60 points
- Bulgaria – Equinox – Bones – 40 points
- Austria – Cesar Sampson – Nobody But You – 39 points
- Belgium – Sennek – A Matter of Time – 36 points
- Finland – Saara Aalto – Monsters – 33 points
- Belarus – Alekseev – Forever – 32 points
- Norway – Alexander Rybak – That’s How You Write A Song – 30 points
Ten countries are yet to score a point from the national juries.
