Once all the submissions have been received a total of ten songs will be selected to compete in Söngvakeppnin. Söngvakeppnin is set to be held in February with ten songs set to compete in the selection. The contest will follow the same format as in previous years with two semi-finals and a final.
Each semi-final will feature five songs, with two being chosen from each show by the public to go into the final. One song will also be saved by a jury and compete in the final. The Grand Final will see all five songs perform in the first round with 50% jury and 50% televote determining the two super finalists. In the Superfinal, the two acts will perform again with the winner chosen by televoting.
