Caffe` Latte` previews…
As countries begin selecting their entries for the Eurovision Song Contest in May, this blog will look back on the stats and the best from each of the 43 participating nations.
Iceland has competed in 29 contests since 1986. It has yet to emerge victorious, but has finished in the runner-up position twice: in 1999 with "All Out Of Luck" (by Selma) and in 2009 with "Is It True?" (performed by Yohanna).
2016 was disappointing for Iceland. Despite having a strong song, "I Hear Them Calling" failed to progress from Semi Final 1.
The Icelandic 2017 entry and its performer will be announced on March 11.
BEST ENTRY EVER:
JE NE SAIS QUOI Hera Bjork
I HEAR THEM CALLING Greta Salóme
IF I HAD YOUR LOVE Selma
