MAY 08: POWERFUL EYTHOR ERUPTS INTO LIFE / VIDEO
“Ég Á Líf” is the title of the Icelandic entry this year performed by Eythor Ingi. Nice voice, nice preview clip, nice guy and everything is ready for Iceland to qualify in the final… or not?
WHAT WE LIKED
The final rehearsal for the day is coming from Iceland. Eythor has magical eyes and you will enjoy them on your screens during his performance. Vocally Eythor is simply amazing and the stage is totally blue.
WHAT WE DISLIKED
Too good to be true? I guess we will know on May 16th. The song is not something that you will easily love but Eythor and his voice are boosting it further. Can Iceland win this year? No with this one but they can easily go to the final.
