Iceland in the Eurovision Song Contest
Iceland debuted at Eurovision in 1986 with ICY and “Gleðibankinn”, which finished 16th with 19 points. Subsequently, Iceland has participated in Eurovision 33 times and earned 7 top-ten finishes. Iceland has yet to win the contest, but they have managed two runner-up results. The first came in 1999, with Selma Björnsdóttir’s “All of Out Luck”, and then in 2009 with Yohanna’s “Is It True?”. Daði og Gagnamagnið’s “Think About Things” was a favourite to win Eurovision before the EBU cancelled the 2020 contest.
Most recently, Daði og Gagnamagnið again represented Iceland at Eurovision 2021 with “10 Years”. They then finished in fourth place with 378 points. However, they could not perform in person due to a positive COVID-19 test. Instead, Iceland used footage from its second rehearsal as their entry.
