  1. This one’s growing on me – assuming it makes it to the final, the second hearing could make it a big fav in Dusseldorf (especially if voters know the back story)…

  2. This is my favorite from all the entries so far, though I doubt it’ll win.

  3. I like it :* !!!!!!!!!!!

  4. wtf! I don’t like it. Yohanna was the better!

  5. Great song !! Good Luck Iceland !!
