With 30 appearances, Iceland is still waiting for their first Eurovision victory. Since their debut in 1986, the country has however twice finished second. First time in 1999 where Selma won the hearts of many Eurovision fans with All Out Of Luck, and again ten years later when Yohanna represented the small island asking Is It True?.
In recent years however, things has not been good. Iceland has not been in top 10 since Yohanna's second place from 2009. Best result in the years that followed was a 15th place to Pollapönk's No Prejudice. From 2015 to 2017, the country even missed the final three years in a row.
