Becks on Iceland

Euroband - This Is My Life 4/5

Time to eat my words, then. Faithful readers will remember me dismissing this one completely even before it won the national final back in February. And I stand by it back then. I thought it was contrived and weak and that everyone involved wanted too much for their own good.

But that was then. The facelift the song had in the national final has taken it a long way, and an easygoing dance tune is not a bad way to start a semi. Friðrik and Regina are dead confident and belts out their number with gusto and determination, and that will probably win the voters over.

But is it really time for a 90's revival already?

In the final?
Yes, for the first time since 2004. Good for Iceland, but hardly a winner come Saturday.
