Söngvakeppnin 2023: The 10 Artists & Songs!

Tonight in Iceland, broadcaster RÚV aired a special programme to reveal the 10 artists who will be competing in Söngvakeppnin 2023, and the 10 songs that they’ll be competing with. A prime-time Saturday night TV show to announce your Eurovision pre-selection participants – we appreciate a broadcaster who takes this shit suitably seriously!
