Ragnhildur Steinunn Jónsdóttir welcomes the audience. The show begins tonight with a conversation between the host and the jurors about some videos that are shown.

Time for the first song tonight:

Lullaby to Peace – Ína Valgerður Pétursdóttir, Seth Sharp, Berglind Ósk Guðgeirsdóttir.

This song, in the line of other compositions that empower the role of peace in the world, seems not to be very catchy. Anyway, it is quite different from other songs performed in the Icelandic semi final this year.

Vocalise-Andrea Gylfadóttir

Now, the show proceeds with the second song: Vocalise by Andrea Gylfadóttir. As the most remarkable feature, the song is quite operatic and has no lyrics whatsoever, just the singer's voice aaaaaing all through the song. An unusual, hauntingchoice of song.

Á ballið á- Böðvar Rafn Reynisson and Tinna Marína Jónsdóttir

Á ballið á, sung by Böðvar Rafn Reynisson and Tinna Marína Jónsdóttir comes nowon stage. No doubt, this is the most pop-style song of the evening. Maybe the two vocalistscould usea little bit more of dancing coordination.The song is a little too 70's with a repetitive chorus, catchy but not very original.

The recap and the lines are now open. The viewers can vote now for their favourite entry tonight. The results of the televote will be announced soon.

The webcast is back, results out any minute now, a final recap of the songs….
