Iceland qualified for the Eurovision 2022 final last night and joined 24 other countries hoping to be crowned the winner of this year’s song contest. Iceland’s contestants Systur will be performing their song Með hækkandi sól during the grand final tomorrow (May 14).
The annual show will be taking place at Pala Olimpico in Turin, Italy. It will be hosted by singers Mika and Laura Pausini, as well as TV presenter Alessandro Cattelan.
Systur was created in 2011 by three sisters Sigríður, Elísabet and Elín Eyþórsdóttir, who say they have been singing together for as long as they can remember. They are the daughters of singer Ellen Kristjánsdóttir and Mezzoforte keyboardist Eyþór Gunnarsson.

They had a previous band, which they named Sísí Ey after their grandmother, and scored a huge hit in Iceland with the song Ain’t Got Nobody. Tomorrow, they will be joined on the Eurovision stage by their brother Eythor who will be playing drums.
Með Hækkandi Sól, the name of their song, means With the Rising Sun. Iceland is not currently expected to win Eurovision 2022, according to bookmakers.
The grand final will be aired on BBC One from 8pm tomorrow (Saturday, May 14). The show will be hosted by TV presenter Graham Norton.
