The first Icelandic Semi-final was held tonight in Reykjavík, and Iceland picked the first three songs for the Final of Söngvakeppnin 2015. Listen to the finalist's songs here

The first of two Semi-finals just ended with 3 songs qualified to the Icelandic Final of Söngvakeppnin 2015. The decision was made entirely by public televoting. Six songs performed in the first semi-final, but only three songs qualified for the Final.

The three songs that didn't qualify will get a second chance to go to the Final. After the second Semi-final, an expert jury will award one of the eliminated songs a wildcard to the Final.

The next semi-final will take place on 7 February, while the big final will be held on 14 February.
