    An Icelandic journey to 2020: Til hamingju!

    An Icelandic journey to 2020: Til hamingju!

    Even though there was no actual winner this year, most of the votes around the world saw Daði Freyr get #1 spot in the hearts of Eurovision voters.

    Michael, Liam and Io wanted to say Til hamingju! by looking back at some of Iceland’s entries since their debut in 1986. They even returned to the studio for the celebration.

    It's that time of the year again, when we start to preview the songs that should have been performed on the Eurovision stage.



    Sadly, we're not getting there. But Australia has voted for their picks of the year and Michael, Liam and Io have started counting them down.



    There are surprises, there is sadness and there is rare glimmer of agreement in this preview show.

    Maybe it’s in the Slovenian water: Reviewing EMA 2020

    Maybe it’s in the Slovenian water: Reviewing EMA 2020

    Michael, Liam and Io bunker down in their bedrooms to review a Eurovision national final for the last time in 2020.

    It’s Slovenia’s turn, and with every man and his dog coming either equal fourth or seventh, it was quite the comp to review. While Ana Soklič won EMA, a heap of other songs didn’t – and we wanted to share them with you.

    Which song is made for Frozen 3?

    Who needs rotating sunflowers in their video?

    Where’s the ticket for music final?

    Make sure you vote for your favourites too!
