So who will it be? Who gets to take their song to the Eurovision Song Contest and hopefully score Iceland's first ever win?

The job of revealing the answer falls to Söngvakeppnin co-host Unnsteinn Manuel Stefánsson, and his colleagues Ragnhildur Steinunn Jónsdóttir and previous podcast guest Siggi Gunnars. Today Unnsteinn joins Darren to talk about his own route to hosting the show, final preparations for Saturday's huge final, and putting the performers at ease before their big moment.

Unnsteinn also explains how - if you're in Iceland - you can help select the song that will represent the country in May.
