It’s been revealed by RÚV that María Ólafsdóttir – Iceland’s representative in 2015 – was in fact only second overall after the first round of voting in the final.

As can be seen in the table below (courtesy of Wikipedia), it was in fact Friðrik Dór who won the first stage of Söngvakeppnin’s final, before Ólafsdóttir surged ahead in the superfinal.

The news once again raises concern over two-song superfinals which many suggest are too associated with anti-voting as people vote for the song they least oppose to.

Nevertheless, Ólafsdóttir won fair and square in the final by almost 15,000 televotes and will represent her country in Vienna!
