Iceland: María Ólafsdóttir wins Söngvakeppnin

Tonight, Iceland picked their representative for Vienna. The winner was María Ólafsdóttir, who will wave the Icelandic flac in Austria in a few months, when she sings her song ‘Unbroken‘ on the big stage.

After an exciting final, five out of the seven songs were eliminated based on a split result of televoting (50%) and a professional jury (50%), and María Ólafsdóttir together with Friðrik Dór moved on to the final battle. Both artists performed their song again, and afterwards the Icelandic public got to say who would be able to represent them this year, and María took home the grand prize! Below, you can see her perfomance in the final of Söngvakeppnin.
