Publié le 06 Février 18 à 19h29  Par Mathias
Another country which starts its selection this week is Iceland and its traditional Söngvakeppnin! As it is now custom, every song is available both in English and Icelandic.

Today, we will introduce you to a duo! First half of it: Tomas Helgi Wehmeier.

How would you define yourself in one word?

How would you describe your state of mind when you're on stage?
I'm just so thrilled to be participating in the Eurovision selection for Iceland. I'm so excited, I'm not stressed. Living the dream and I'm gonna perform with the state of mind of making my dream come true.

How would you quickly tell the story of your life?
I'm 24 years old. I have owned a company, worked in many great places, I have a 2 year old son, I started singing about one and a half year ago. I love performing and recording.

How does one make you angry?

How does one make you happy?
My son. He's my world

How would you define your taste in music?
A little bit of everything, but.. blues-indie-rock-pop and folk music.

If there was just 1 artist you could listen to for the rest of your life, who would it be?
Kaleo - JJ Juliusson. He's the reason I started singing.

How would you describe Think it through, your song for the contest?
The song is about how much you want someone back after breaking up. The doubts and the thoughts after the break up. A lot of emotions and feelings.

Which one of the two versions would you like to sing in Lisbon?
The English version - Think it Through :)

How did you make the decision of entering the Söngvakeppnin this year?
A songwriter from England contacted me after seeing my performance on The Voice Iceland, he really liked my voice, my voice is so different. He had an idea of a song, he wrote me on Facebook - I though at first it was a scam haha. We skyped and started to share ideas. I came up with the idea of a duet and contacted Sólborg. We flew to London, locked ourselves in the studio, wrote the song and next day recorded it ;)

How would you make us want to come to Iceland?
The country is so beautiful, a lot of music culture. So many activities and places to see.

How do you picture Eurovision in 10 years?
Eurovision is growing and growing, I think it will be different, 2028 - the future, the music is always changing so I'm so excited to see how the competition is going to be in 10 years.

How are you going to win Eurovision 2018?
I'm gonna put my everything into this competition, I want to share my voice and my personality with everyone. I love chatting with fans all over the world and I always answer to everybody. I'm gonna sing my heart out for you guys. Thanks for all the support. Je t'aime.

Tomas, thank you so much for this interview! Along with his partner who will be interviewed next, he will sing Think it through this Saturday in Reykjavik!
