He was born on 1 June 1977 in Akureyri, northern Iceland and has been singing for as long as he can remember.
Jonsi moved to the Icelandic capital, Reykjavik in 1997 to start his music career and soon got several opportunities to sing. In 1998, he joined a group of friends who had formed the band, “Í Svörtum Fötum” (Dressed in Black) and were looking for a singer.
Unsurprisingly, the band’s debut performance on 1 January 1999 saw them wearing black suits, white shirts and black ties.
Their single, 'Nakinn' (Naked), released in spring 2001 went to no. 2 in the Icelandic charts and the band landed a four album deal with Skifan Records in September that year.
The band is well known for their active live performances and busy tour schedules. In summer 2002 they finished their critically acclaimed second album, “Í Svörtum Fötum,” which went gold. The band’s popularity continued to rise and they spent 2003 working on new material. Their third album, “Tengsl,” was even more successful.
Jonsi was nominated 'Vocalist of the Year' at the 2003 Icelandic Music Awards. He has repeatedly won 'Male Vocalist of the Year' and 'Best Live Performer' as voted for by Icelandic radio listeners.
Over the past two years Jonsi has performed and recorded with some of Iceland's biggest names and in 2003 he landed the starring role of Danny Zuko in the musical, “Grease.” The show went on to become one of Iceland’s biggest theatre blockbusters, and has starred 2003's delectable Birgitta in the Ms Newton-John role.

The Icelandics didn't have a "super-dooper singer and dancing show". Instead they chose their singer internally.
A national final is, according to broadcaster RÚV, too expensive. Quite a surprise to hear from one of the richest countries in the world. It seems that the worldwide recession has also hit Iceland.

The Singer
The jammy fella. Getting to thrust his leather clad groin every evening in the general direction of Birgitta Haukdal, during his turn in Grease. Man in Black Jonsi has at least two adoring Icelandic fans, since they've been in contact with me to share in their appreciative glow of him. To me, he sounds like yet another Scandinavian male lounge act.

The Past

Always an interesting Eurovision nation in my book. In the past the Icelandics have sent ravishing beauties, moody & mysterious types, and even a bloke with a taste for public ononism. 
Once a bridesmaid (indeed, Selma turned up in the right dress to take on the role in 1999), but never the bride, you never know what you're going to get with Iceland. To prove my point, who else would send Beethoven to sing about Socrates? Quite.

The Song

He has hinted that he will be appearing alone on stage, without backing singers, dancing, or owt fancy. Which is a brave but ultimately foolish move. It's just not very memorable anyway, let alone with Jesper Gronkjaer the only thing to look at.
And in an arresting music video that nods a large wink to Spielberg's "Minority Report", Jonsi goes all out for the feminine vote in a boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy fiddles with his bits over a virtual reality image of girl...or does he conundrum. Give him an Oscar. 

"Wanna" Count - 1...still not to be sniffed at.


Dull. Doesn't deserve to automatically in the final, and certainly doesn't deserve to undo all the good work Birgitta put in last year. Oh and on the night, from this point on in proceedings things will go downhill. You may not believe they can, but they will...trust me.

In a Nutshell
"Blend this song with all the other poo"



I still miss you
And it makes me feel blue
And I'm lost
Without those colours of you
I can't think straight
I just wanna be
Wherever you are
When your not here with me

Blend with my blue
Those colours of you
Please help me
See it through oh
This journey I must
Take all alone
I blend my blue
In those colours of you

I lay down and cry
And the rivers are dry
Oh, to unvail my heart
When you kiss me goodbye
And when you set sail
Fair winds... all the way
So, farewell
That's all I can say

Blend with my blue
Those colours of you
Please help me
See it through oh
This journey I must
Take all alone
I blend my blue
In those colours of you

And I know
I'll find my love tonight
I can feel you reaching out
I got this feeling deep inside
It's in my head
It's in my heart

I know
Your love tonight
And I know
You'll be by my side
I know
You'll help me see it through
Blend your colours
With my blue
