  Iceland’s Eurovision entry, band Dadi og Gagnamagnid, has pulled out of the live event this weekend after a member of the group tested positive for COVID-19, although their song remains in the competition.

The band was one of the top five favourites to win this year’s contest held in the Dutch port city of Rotterdam according to bookmakers “A member of Gagnamagnid got a positive test result this morning,” lead singer Dadi Freyr tweeted on Wednesday.

The song contest’s organiser, the European Broadcasting Union, said they would broadcast a rehearsal performance of the song.

Under Eurovision’s stringent COVID-19 protocol, no one can enter the Eurovision venue without a negative COVID-19 test.
