We turn to one of the Eurovision "extremities" and visit the most Westerly country to take part - Iceland!  Iceland have had a good record in the ESC in the last few years and have qualified from the semi finals every year since 2008.  Hoping to continue that run of success this year is a young singer called Maria Ólafsdóttir with her song "Unbroken".

It's a mid-tempo sing-a-long number, that sees Maria waft around barefoot (in the Icelandic National Final at least), but it is a shade too bland for me.  Have a look and a listen and see what you think!:
So what do our panel of music experts and fans think?:

Asta Bjornsdottir:  "As per usual I won‘t judge the song from Iceland. I will say though that the video really doesn´t say anything about the precentation because the dancers have been sacked and there will be 5 backing singers on stage instead, so I‘ll be waiting to see how this comes out on stage."

Hasse Skoldebjer: "Nice but nothing special. 4/10."

Annemieke Kelleter: "Iceland, another one I tend to forget. Nice... and that's it. Nice girl, nice voice, nice melody. Mediocrity at it's best."

Adam and Charlotte Lane: "Nice but bland. Nothing special, although it is nice to hear a track that isn’t full of gimmicks. 3/10."

So looks like Iceland will have their work cut out in qualifying to the final this year, if our panel have any say in the matter! But what do you think? Let us know by commenting below! :D
