The Faroe Islands participated at the fourteenth North Vision Song Contest. The duo Byrta were selected via the national selection Rising Star Føroyar 02 to represent the country with their song "Grát Ei Eftir Mánanum".

Background

On 16 March, KVF officially confirmed that the Faroe Islands would take part in the North Vision Song Contest 14. The statement by the national broadcaster said that the previously in North Vision Song Contest 11 used national selection Rising Star Føroyar would make a return. The artists for the selection were announced by KVF on 21 March 2015. They were Byrta, Faroe5, Hulda, Kendar Røddir, Knút, Laila av Reyni, MURA and Rakul. The three shows were first set to be held on 4th, 11th and 18th April 2015 but on 29 March 2015 KVF announced that the dates would be changed to 3rd, 10th and 17th April, so all shows would be broadcasted one day earlier than their actual transmission.

National Selection

The Faroese entrant was found via the show "Rising Star Føroyar 02" which contained two Semi Finals and a Final to determine its winner. In the end, Byrta managed to receive the highest amount of votes by the Faroese public.
