Semi-finals

Söngvakeppnin commences with two semi-finals, which determine the four entries that advance directly to the final and the four entries that qualify to the Second Chance round. The running order for the semi-finals are announced shortly before the semi-final.

The semi-final results are based solely on viewer votes. Two rounds of voting take place in each semi-final to determine which entries would advance further and which entries would be eliminated. All six competing entries in each semi-final participate in the first round of voting where the top five advances to the second round, while the bottom one is eliminated. In the second round of voting, the two entries that occupy the first and second places qualify directly to the final, while the third and fourth placed entries proceed to the Second Chance round. The fifth placed entry is eliminated. All votes from the second round of voting are added to the votes that each entry received from the first round of voting in order to determine the final outcome.
