The third semi final of Söngvakeppni Sjónvarpsins 2007, the Icelandic national selection, is taking place right now. Just like the last two weeks, eight songs will compete and the top three move forward to the final which will be held next Saturday. A high quality webcast of the show is available.

After a short introduction, the first entry is performed.

Erna Hrönn Ólafsdóttir Örlagadís

A pop-rock song. The female lead singer gives a good vocal performance but the overall impression is quiet simple.

Alexander Aron GuðbjartssonVilltir skuggar

The band is completely dressed in black. The song might be called an average national final mid tempo pop song.

Soffía KarlssonJúnínótt

A fairytale song and performance in the style of Alvedansen (Norway 2006). The lead singer is wering a white dress with flowers and she obviously likes the song. The voive is pretty quiet sometimes.

Matthías Matthíassonðin liggur heim

Another mid-tempo pop song. The lead singer wears a black suit with a blue shirt. In the background, there are four background singers and a guitar player.

Andri BergmannBjarta brosið

The song is similar to the previous one but with a more obvious hook. The singer sits down on the stage during the performance.

Helgi Rafn IngvarssonVetur

In the background there are a cello player and and a piano player. The ballad is very emotionally performed but has no obvious chorus.

Ragnheiður EiríksdóttirÉg og heilinn minn

The first rather lively performance of the evening. The singer is wearing a golden overall and dancing on stage, although there might be no real choreography.

Hafsteinn Þórólfsson Þú tryllir mig

An interesting arrangement: the rock sound is mixed with some soul elements. The lead singer, sitting in a white armchair (in rememberance of Paul Oscar's couch?), wears a black suit.

We can now wait for the results.
