You can listen to all of the Söngvakeppnin 2022 entries on the Icelandic broadcasters website by clicking here.



The artists will compete by singing their entries in Icelandic during the semi-finals, and will be given the choice of whether to sing in Icelandic, English, or any language they wish during the Grand Final, as long as it is how they intend to perform it for Eurovision.


Two songs will be selected from each semi-final to go on to the Grand Final from the public vote, and another song will be saved by the jury to go through, making for a five-song Grand Final.


Söngvakeppnin is set to be hosted by Björg Magnúsdóttir, Jón Jónsson and Ragnhildur Steinunn Jónsdóttir.
