Sautján stúlkur frá Húsavík og sænska söngkonan Molly Sandén, hafa flutt lagið Husavik fyrir heimsbyggðina og óhætt er að fullyrða að þær hafi verið landi og þjóð til sóma.
Eins og alþjóð veit er lagið úr Eurovision myndinni tilnefnt til Óskarsverðlauna. Venja er að lög sem tilnefnd eru séu flutt á sjálfri verðlaunahátíðinni en vegna sóttvarnarreglna á hátíðinni gat söngkonan sænska ekki ferðast til Bandaríkjanna til að flytja lagið á hátíðinni.
Af viðbrögðun á Twitter er ekki annað að sjá en flutningurinn fái góðar móttökur.
I’m obsessed with Iceland since my first trip in 2019. I hope this wins!— Julie Wright (@reddogcw) April 25, 2021

The people of Húsavík, a town of only 2,300 in Iceland, staged a grassroots #Oscars campaign on behalf of a song from Will Ferrell's “Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga" and adopted it as a de facto local anthem. https://t.co/s111VcKbf4— AP Entertainment (@APEntertainment) April 25, 2021
Watching #Husavik being sung from Husavik was amazing. It brought me to tears. I hope that it wins best song, but even if it doesn’t, that small, fishing village in Iceland just owned their moment of glory. #AcademyAwards— Alabama Bromo (@AlabamaBromo) April 25, 2021

I’m pulling for this tiny fishing town on the northern coast of Iceland to win tonight. Husavik is the Cinderella of the Oscars Best Song race. https://t.co/3HYf19VfS9— Chris is vaccinated (@ChrisZoladz) April 25, 2021
