This year seems to be the year of extremes, everybody would like to be crazier than Netta. We have opera from Australia and jazz from Latvia and some other crazy stuff. But Iceland is putting a cherry on the cake with its choice for Eurovision. The punk band Hatari with the song “Hatrið mun sigra” (Hate will prevail). Friðrik Ómar with "Hvað ef érget ekki elskað" also reached the super final, but came second at the end.
This Icelandic entry will definitely polarize in Tel Aviv, either you will hate or love this entry. This is mainly due to the looks of the singers and the screeching ranting in the verse. If this was the right choice we will know in May.
Watch the Icelandic entry:

About me: As one of the founders of eurovisionlive.com I am responsible for the interviews with the singers and the editorial content. My passion for the Eurovision Song Contest exists since my early childhood. The exotic music, different cultures and languages have given a lot of inspiration to me. Since my very first ESC in Dublin 1994 I particularly appreciate the get together and friendship of all the nationalities and Riverdance was a thrill!
