Euroband – August 2018

Euroband 1

Euroband are Regina Osk and Fredrik Omar from Iceland. Both Regina and Fredrik had previously tried to represent Iceland in at Eurovision before finally suceeding together in 2008.

Regina took part in the Eurovision Song Contest 2001, 2003 and 2005 as a backing singer for those years’ Icelandic artists. In 2003 and 2006 Regina took part in Songvakeppni Sjonvarpsins (the Icelandic selection for Eurovision), coming runner up in 2006.

Fredrik also took part in Songvakeppni Sjonvarpsins but in 2007, and like Regina came runner up.

In 2008 they decided to combine their talents and won the Icelandic national final, going on to compete in Eurovision in Belgrade. They sailed through their semi-final and finished a respectable 14th in the final with 64 points.

Since Eurovision, Regina and Fredrik have continued to perform together and separately with Eurovision hits continuing to form a big part of their performances.
