Eurovision 2023: Iceland’s First Rehearsal!

Next up on the stage of Eurovision Song Contest 2023 is Iceland. Diljá with her songPoweris ready for her first rehearsal on the stage of M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool!

Who is Diljá?

Diljá Pétursdóttir, better known simply as Diljá, was born in 2002 in Kópavogur in the Capital Region of Iceland. She first gained attention after competing in the second series of Ísland Got Talent in 2015. Off-stage, Diljá is a physiotherapy student and a committed CrossFit athlete. A self-proclaimed ‘Eurovision nerd’, it’s always been Diljá’s dream to represent her nation at the Contest.

The Rehearsal

Diljá has huge stage presence and an infectious energy, and the biggest power she has is in that extraordinary voice.

She’s also moves really well, covering the whole stage with high kicks and gymnastic moves – it’s a really compelling combination of vocal and physical strength, that feels like nothing else at Eurovision this year. We also haven’t seen a lot of drum ‘n’ bass at Eurovision over the years, and now we’d like more please.
