Söngvakeppni Sjónvarpsins, the pre-selection process used to determine the entry that Iceland will send to the Eurovision Song Contest is set to return as the Scandinavian country unveils the rules and regulations. Since 2008, the country has managed to get into the final on each occasion, even managing a first runner-up finish at the 2009 edition with the song Is It True? performed impeccably by Yohanna. RUV, the national broadcaster has commended local songwriters and performers for the submissions received in recent years, noting that all the winners had the potential to succeed on an international level.

It seems that there are no drastic changes when it comes to the rules and regulations of the upcoming pre-selection procedure as denoted on the official website of the broadcaster. Foreign songwriters could submit entries as long as they work together with Icelandic ones but nevertheless, it is imperative that the performer is local and sixteen (16) years of age by the 31st December 2013. As always, the language to be performed at the Eurovision Song Contest might not be the native Icelandic tongue with a possible switch to English. This has been the case on most occasions apart from this year as Eythor Ingi performed his entry Ég á Líf in native tongue, finishing in seventeenth place. Stay tuned to for all of the latest news.
