UPDATED 9 February: Running order in the final

The second 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. Just like the first semi-final last saturday six songs performed in this semi-final, but only three songs qualified for the Final.

The six songs that didn't qualify from one of the semi-finals got a second chance to go to the Final. After the second Semi-final, an expert jury awarded one of the eliminated songs a wildcard to the Final. The lucky one was "Milljón augnablik" by Haukur Heiðar Hauksson

The Icelandic final of Söngvakeppnin will be held on 14 February.
