Sjonni's Friends (Sigurjón's Friends) is an Icelandic band founded in 2011 especially for the Eurovision national selection. Sigurjón Brink, aka Sjonni Brink, was a talented Icelandic musician who participated in national selections in 2005, 2007 and 2010. He was to enter again in 2011 but sadly on January 29th, one day before he was due to perform, he had a heart attack and died. His family asked that his song, Coming home (Aftur heim), remain in the contest programme and be performed by the musician’s friends. The new band Sjonni's Friends won the national selection and became Iceland’s representative at the Eurovision International Song Contest in Düsseldorf.
