REYKJAVIK – Svala has won Söngvakeppnin 2017 and will represent Iceland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv with the song Paper.
This wasn’t a suprise, she was by far the favorite to win the Icelandic national final. I don’t think she was the best choice, this song is too ordinary in my opinion. She is a great singer so her live vocals didn’t disappoint me at all. I just think she needs better staging, the performance right now is kind of boring. I don’t know if this will be popular at Eurovision. Last year I was absolutely certain that Iceland would qualify but then they didn’t so I’m not sure they will be able to do it this year. 6/10
