The big fear that the corona virus does not make stop of the Eurovision Song Contest has been confirmed. One team member of Daði & Gagnamagnið from Iceland has been tested positive. Hence the entire group will remain in quarantine. The band confirmed that they will not sing live neither in the rehearsals, nor in the live shows, as they only want to perform altogether.
Iceland is still in the competition, but instead of a live appearance, the record of the second rehearsal will be shown.
These are bitter news, but it was to be expected that something like may happen this year. And Eurovision is not over yet, so nobody knows what might come. We wish the Icelandic team all the best and good health.
