Iceland will kick off their selection rounds for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö this weekend with two semi-finals. The semi-finals will air on Icelandic TV at 21.00 CET (20.00 local time)

The running order was drawn today and now we know that the first semi-final will be started by Yohanna (Iceland 2009), or Jóhanna Guðrún Jónsdóttir, as she is known at home, and finished by Birgitta Haukdal (Iceland 2003).

The second semi-final will be started by Klara Ósk Elíasdóttir and the last semi-final slot has been drawn for Erna Hrönn Ólafsdóttir, who has already been to the international Eurovision stage as a backing singer.

There will be a 50/50 voting procedure, where the public votes and those from a judging panel have equal weight in deciding the three winners from each semi-final.

So the final in the Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik on 2 February will have six acts battling it out for the ticket to Malmö. The organisers have however reserved the right to add a seventh act to the final as a wildcard.
