Would Iceland be banned or punished by the EBU after the incident with Hatari in the final voting? :S

For sure not banned, if Azerbaijan could block numbers, interrogate voters and buy votes, if Russia could show a "dark screen" on TV when there was some LGBT moment and vote buying, then how could Iceland possibly be banned? The problem is that EBU has set rules which they didn't even follow themselves, hence creating a bad precedent. At most they will get a small symbolic fine, but that's all.

lol as if they would ban a country that so into esc like Iceland.
I fear Hatari were a fluke because yet again their NF was quite underwhelming apart from them. I don't know what their viewing figures for the NF but maybe they should try with an internal selection just to try something new.

It's time for Daði to come back xheart I want another synth-driven melancolic nerd anthem please. He was robbed in 2017 imo.

I really doubt Dadi can top "Is this love" (which was delightful and would've done very well in Kyiv) but yes, if he's interested in participating again, GO for it. Hope RUV can mobilize some of my other nf faves in Asdis Maria and Sunday. xlove.

[MENTION=16481]BorisBubbles[/MENTION] Oh yes! Sunday were so good too! I didn't really like the translated version of their entry, but the original one was a mood. :)

idk the icelandic NF has been utter crap for such a while. they have actually lucked out to only have ari as a horrible entry since 2016 because it's been a mess since then. maria olafs really destroyed the country. i can only hope hatari has given its life back.

^^ OMG poor Maria - Her live performance was underwhelming, for sure, but the song itself was alright but I agree with what you said.. somehow, Iceland "lost" its spark in recent years.
It's crazy to think that they have always reached the finals between 2008 and 2014. Good old times.

is currently unknown due to lack of Schlager

I think the problem didn't lie solely on Maria or the NF. Iceland is casually forgotten in the 2010s, even if they survived the semifinals in 3rd or 4th they will drift into the left side, even with a potential song -- also counting Finland, Malta, Portugal, Slovenia, etc.

Lol Iceland is not forgotten, the other countries simply had much more memorable and/or better songs, and that Maria’s sentence she sung cannot be even called a song.

Also, I found I like Hatrið mun sigra, still hate their political mess(age) and that anticapitalist nautskít. :mrgreen:

Iceland streak from 2008-2014 was amazing, hopefully they will build a new streak and will not send something like 2018 ever again :?

I'm really not too sattisfied with Iceland since 2004, I don't like/love many entries :(

Icelandic entries I LOVE, since 2004:

2010 - Hera Björk - "Je ne sais quoi"
2017 - Svala - "Paper"

I adore these 2!!

Icelandic entries I LIKE, since 2004:

2013 - Eyþór Ingi Gunnlaugsson - "Ég á líf"

Mainly due to Icelandic language..

Iceland should be # 1 in my Eurovision ranking with "Helgi", but they selected unlistenable piece of shit in 2019.
