Finally, the Icelandic entrant for the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest has been chosen!

Jón Jósep Snjæbjörnsson, formerly known as Jónsi, the lead singer of one of Icelands most popular bands “Í svörtum fötum”, has been chosen to perform this year's entry and therefore travel to Turkey to represent Iceland at this years Eurovision Song Contest. The Icelandic entry this year is called Heaven and was composed by Sveinn Rúnar Sigurðsson. Lyrics are by Magnús Þór Sigmundsson.

Jónsi is known for his good looks and has proved himself to be quite the ladies man. The people of Iceland will surely not be dissapointed by this years choice of artist. Having recieved endless awards for his music, good looks and other things, Jónsi is believed to be Iceland's best contender for Eurovision Song Contest title this year.

“Heaven was originally supposed to be entered into last years national final, but Sveinn missed the deadline and therefore chose to keep working on the song and enter in this years preselection process. Recording of the single will be as so often before in charge of Þorvaldur Bjarni Þorvaldsson. RÚV has however decided that the entry will be kept within the working crew of the Icelandic entry, till March 1st, when it will be publicly played on TV. More info will follow.

Eurovision.is is up and running again, looking better than ever.
