The group, Daði og gagnamagnið, was unable to appear live, due to one of the members having tested positive for the coronavirus. (See our earlier report here ). Therefore, a recording from the dress rehearsal of their song, “10 Years,” was broadcast during the second semi-final last night. The same recording will be used during the final.
