Selection of participants

Artists and songs

Famous and successful, aswell as unknown and new artists get the chance to show off their talent in Sangur Føroysk. Every artist must have a Faroese-Danish passport. Artists from other countries or regions are not allowed to enter the competition according to the official reglement. Before the actual selection, artists have to go through a casting by Faroese music managers and the head of delegation of the Faroe Islands who will select the five artists that fit best for diversity in the show and for the stage performance at the North Vision Song Contest.

All of the songs have to be an original song by the artists themselves. Covers are not allowed. Each song has to have a length between 2:45 and 5:00 minutes. If a song is too short or too long for the NBU standard, the song has to be revamped. Every artist has the right to select their song on their own. The jury that pre-decides on the artists cannot influence the artists' decision on the song. The songs are allowed to be sung in English, Danish and Faroese. All in all, the selection follows the NBU reglements.

Format

Each edition consists of one show with a total amount of 5 songs by 5 different artists. Each artist performs their song once live. The winner of the selection will be the one who gets the most votes of the international jury and the Faroese public combined.

Voting

Each international and the Faroese jury will give 12 points to their favourite song, then 10 points, 8 points, 4 points and 2 points for their least favourite song.
