Idol stjörnuleit (English: Idol Starsearch) is Iceland's version of the British reality series Pop Idol. The show allows the people of Iceland—through telephone voting—to select the winner of several televised singing contests, following the same format as Pop Idol. Iceland is the smallest country (by population) to have its own Idol show.

The show airs on Stöð 2, four seasons have aired. Winners were Kalli Bjarni, Hildur Vala, Snorri Snorrason and Hrafna Hanna Elísa Herbertsdóttir. It is hosted by Jói and Simmi.

Judges[edit]

The judges of Idol - Stjörnuleit seasons 1 and 2 were:

  • Bubbi Morthens, locally renowned pop singer
  • Sigríður Beinteinsdóttir, radio DJ in Reykjavík
  • Þorvaldur Bjarni Þorvaldsson, #1 music producer in Iceland and guitarist for rock band Todmobile

For season 3, Þorvaldur decided to leave and was replaced by 2 new judges making a total of four.

After more than three years absent from Icelandic Television, Idol stjörnuleit returned for its fourth season in early 2009 with Jói and Simmi returning as hosts but with a complete new panel of judges consisting of:
