Vala Hafstað

Iceland’s contribution to the Eurovision Song Contest – ‘10 Years’ - premiered on RÚV television Saturday night, performed by the group Daði og Gagnamagnið, mbl.is reports.

The song is about the ten-year-old relationship of Daði and his wife Árný, who is one of the group members. A children’s choir from  Langholtskirkja church, Reykjavík, performed with them.

The 2021 Eurovision Song Contest will be held May 18-22 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The annual international song competitions is organized by the European Broadcasting Union and includes contestants mainly from European countries.

Last year’s contest was canceled, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Iceland’s entry that year, the song ‘Think About Things,’ performed by Daði og Gagnamagnið, became a viral hit and was even regarded as a likely winner of the contest. In addition, that song made it to Time’s list of the ten best songs of 2020. See our previous report here.
