The official videoclip for the Icelandic entry has been premiered tonight on the national broadcaster RÚV. The song will be performed in English under the title Coming home, with lyrics penned by Sigurjón Brink's widow, Thorunn Clausen. Sjonni had already made a draft of the English lyrics, but she finished the work and tried to maintain the spirit of the Icelandic version.

The video features Sjonni's family and friends, dancing to the song in a little barn in Mosfellsdalur, Iceland. According to them, the feel of it all is very "Sjonni", happy and jolly.

Sigurjón Friend's won the Icelandic national selection Söngvakeppni Sjónvarpsins and therefore will represent the island in the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest. They will compete in the first semifinal on May 10th.
