Regína Ósk Óskarsdóttir (born December 21, 1977, in Reykjavík) is an Icelandic singer. She has participated for Iceland in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2001, 2003, and 2005 as a backing vocal, and in 2008 as a member of Eurobandið with the song "This Is My Life". Alongside Friðrik Ómar, Regína achieved the 14th place in the final, resulting in Iceland's best showing since the Eurovision Song Contest 2003.
Regína Ósk Óskarsdóttir was born in Reykjavík on December 21, 1977. Like her Eurobandið band mate Friðrik Ómar, more or less started singing before she could talk. Regína won two song competitions in her early teens, sang solo with her school choir, and studied classical singing for a period in The Reykjavík Academy of Singing and Vocal Arts, before taking some lessons in jazz vocals. Her first band was the girl group Söngsystur, which later evolved into an octet 8-villt, but more recently has been performing with the band Nova.
In 1999, Regína Ósk sang in the musical Little Shop of Horrors, where she met Selma Björnsdottir, who represented Iceland in the Eurovision Song Contest 1999, and the two worked together for some time after that. Regína sang backing vocals in Eurovision Song Contest in 2001, 2003, and 2005, and has done a lot of studio session work. She recorded an eponymous solo album in 2005; the second album Í djúpum dal was released in 2006 and her third album, Ef væri ég..., appeared in 2007.
