Iceland: Söngvakeppnin 2024 Continues with Second Semi-Final!

Tonight marks the continuation of the journey to select Iceland’s representative for the 68th Eurovision Song Contest with the second semi-final of Söngvakeppnin 2024.


Comprising of two semi-finals and the grand final on March 2nd, these three shows will determine the artist who will compete for Iceland’s colors in Malmö.
