ESC 2011, semi-final 1 - Iceland

Sigurjón's Friends are an Icelandic band, founded after the sudden death of Sigurjón Brink. Originally Sigurjón was meant to be the singer of the song Aftur Heim. Just before the semi-final of the Icelandic pre-selection for the Eurovision Song Contest Sigurjón passed away and his family decided, on reflection that they would like for the song to remain in the competition, that it should be performed by Sigurjón's Friends: Gunnar Ólason, Vignir Snær Vigfússon, Pálmi Sigurhjartarson, Matthías Matthíasson, Hreimur Örn Heimisson and Benedikt Brynleifsson. The friends won very unexpectedly.
