It would be very nice to see a former Icelandic participant this year. Birgitta Haukdal and Yohanna will compete in this years national selection, Söngvakeppnin 2013.

Pity songs like that still exist in 2013...and i guess it will get worse as it will be for sure in English (or maybe i'm wrong as Iceland 2012 wasn't like that, but the song style was still very different...) and furthermore, the singer himself really looks like a clown with all those motions...in other words, one song too much in this ESC  :doh:
