The Final of Söngvakeppnin took place in Iceland this evening, and after two Semi-finals and one Final in Iceland, we now know the Icelandic entry for Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Vienna: María Ólafsdóttir with the song "Unbroken". The song is written by Ásgeir Orri Ásgeirsson, Pálmi Ragnar Ásgeirsson and Sæþór Kristjánsson

María Ólafsdóttir - "Unbroken"

A total of seven songs performed in the Final of Söngvakeppnin. Three songs from each Semi-final, and one song awarded with a wildcard by an expert jury.

The evening was divided into two rounds: In the first round the seven songs performed, and a 50/50 combination of jury and televoting picked just two songs for the next round: Friðrik Dór and María Ólafsdóttir. In the second round Friðrik Dór and María Ólafsdóttir performed again, and here the winner was solely decided by televoting.
