VIDEO: Iceland’s big Eurovision moment tonight!
There are just a few short hours left till Greta Salóme takes to the Eurovision stage in Stockholm to try and secure a ticket to Saturday’s grand final.
Last night saw the ‘jury semi-final’ – a dress rehearsal watched and scored by the professional juries of the voting nations. The scores from last night will make up 50% of the result, with televoting results from viewers tonight making up the other 50%.
By all accounts, the Icelandic performance exceeded all expectations and most predict an Icelandic qualification. The top ten countries from tonight’s field of eighteen will perform again in the final Saturday.
And for those of you who might be thinking ‘who cares?’, believe us – Iceland cares. See the reaction of the Icelandic delegation when they bagged to last ticket to the final back in 2011:
