I voted for it and I saw that Estonia gave it also 6 points (always could be more)

We gave it six points too much in my opinion. :?

This is SO sad! I voted for them about four times (and, as far as I remember correctly, Germany gave three points to them) and I can't believe that such a classy and wonderful song didn't go top ten.

I have to say that 2 things didn't help:
1. they were on after Russia. as I commented in the "finals" thread, they appeared a bit flat after grannies who were jumping, baking etc.
2. they appeared flat. even on the rehersals (also commented on that right away). the act was missing some spark or something.

the song is good but live killed it.

pretty ok song, but the vocals sounded a little bit off on the night, might have had something to do with the poor result

To be honest, i was expecting this. Veeeery boring performance. sorry. :(

Send Blár Ópal next year. :p

Uh...they were terrible. If Iceland send them they won't even make the final.

I am not surprised. It was better in Icelandic, and on the NF stage.....

Never forget where your points come from

me too :(

I've fallen in love with this song but last night Iceland disappointed me :( Their performance was spiritless. Their voices weren't clear and loud enough. I thought there was a technical problem. After all, i still voted for Iceland two times because song is great and i knew they could do better. I'm sorry for the result :(

Greta are you satisfied now that Europe understood the language?

So sad with this song. I love it but it seemed overshadowed by the russians' grannies that performed right before this.

I thought, this could do much better (in jury + televoting) and even reach the top 10 (Even if I don´t like it) - so the result was a bit diappointing for me

Is there an Icelandic diaspora in Hungary or do Hungarians just like Icelandic songs in general? They even gave Sjonni's Friends 12 points last year.

Very undeserving result for :is:. Okay, Jonsi was off-key at the beginning, and as much as I liked the song, it lacked any oomph on stage in the final (and coming after Russia was always a hard task) but it deserved better!
