this bunch of songs was much better than the first one imo, and i love song 4 "Beint á ská" was great
i also liked a lot song 2

but once again televoters went their own ways... Yohanna is so going to win and i'm sad, she also said she'd sing in English in Dusseldorf!

i also thought it was better than the first semi and i really liked song number 4. though i thought the studio version was better so the live vocals let  me down just a bit.

true, but it was done in purpose imo and i love her style in general lol (whereas Erna is typical and plain scary)

rakel would have been my preference to qualify for sure.

i heard that Sigurjon's friends will be performing his song as a tribute in the next semi. does anyone know if the song will actually be competing, or are they just doing the perfomance?

About the 1st semifinal: I only liked song nr 1 - the others were more or less boring or sleepy.  :-[ But yes, nr 1 was good.  :)

In the 2nd semifinal I liked most songs nr 1 and 2.  :) As I already said in Norway thread, songs like nr 3 are heard so many times that they are boring. In song nr 4, which both Morgan and Bree prefered, the singer was in my opinion singing off-tune and song nr 5 became chaotic when the woman started screaming.  :doh:

It will be sung in English in Düsseldorf.  A bit of history too will be created as it will be the first ESC entry where one of the writers is no longer with us - a posthumous entry as it were.  It's a nice enough song but will reserve judgement until I hear the English version
