Who is Systur, the Icelandic group of Eurovision 2022?


Iceland qualified for the Eurovision 2022 final last night and joined 24 other countries in the hope of being crowned winners of this year’s song contest. Icelandic contestants Systur will perform their song Með hækkandi sól in the grand finale tomorrow (May 14).

The annual show will take place at the Pala Olimpico in Turin, Italy. It will be hosted by singers Mika and Laura Pausini, as well as television 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 vocalist Ellen Kristjánsdóttir and Mezzoforte keyboardist Eyþór Gunnarsson.

They had a previous band, which they named Sísí Ey after their grandmother, and achieved huge success in Iceland with the song Ain’t Got Nobody. Tomorrow, they will be joined on the Eurovision stage by their brother Eythor who will play the drums.

Með Hækkandi Sól, the name of their song, means With the rising sun. Iceland are currently not expected to win Eurovision 2022, according to bookmakers.

The grand finale will air on BBC One from 8 p.m. tomorrow (Saturday May 14). The show will be hosted by TV presenter Graham Norton.
