Likely Televote Appeal
Likely Jury Appeal
If Björkman is doing his job properly, this should be buried in slot 2 when the running order is published.
Following two semi-finals and, tonight’s Söngvakeppnin 2018 final has yielded a result. Iceland opted to send Ari Ólafsson to Lisbon with the song Our Choice.
Ari will perform in the first half of semi-final 1.
Our Choice is such a let down for Iceland with its nauseating ‘save the world’ and ‘love everyone’ theme. It’s what most non-musically gifted 6th-grade school kids write if required to. Actually, has anyone checked his ID?
Despite the boyish ‘mums will love him’ looks, Iceland have few allies to count on. Moreover, the juries will absolutely hate this. And if Björkman is doing his job properly, this should be buried in slot 2 when the running order is published.
It’s a momentous feat, Iceland, but you officially have the worst song in semi-final 1. Congrats!
Are Iceland just making up the numbers in semi-final 1?
