Denmark have announced that entrants of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2018 will be announced on January 22nd. In a special press conference, the Danish broadcaster will make the ten entrants public.
Big shots and celebrities
The press conference will consist of several parts. First of all, DR’s Head of Entertainment and newly elected member of the EBU Reference Group Jan Lagermand Lundme will welcome the press and viewers.
After Lagermand Lundme, Nicolaj Holm, the Chairman of the Aalborg Gigantium, will tell us more about Aalborg. The northern city will host DMGP 2018 in their Gigantium. It will be the sixth time that Aalborg hosts (the final of) Dansk Melodi Grand Prix. It will also be the fifth time for the Gigantium, with 2015 as its most recent hosting effort.
Once the official parts are over, ten Grand Prix legends will appear to introduce the acts. Among the legends, we will see the likes of Kirsten Siggaard, Hilda Heick and Jørgen de Mylius. They will introduce the acts one by one.
Dansk Melodi Grand Prix: Hosts and date
The Danish national final will take place on February 10th. The show in Aalborg will once again be hosted by Annette Heick and Johannes Nymark. They also hosted the show last year. For Heick, it will be the third year in a row of hosting Dansk Melodi Grand Prix.
Last year’s Dansk Melodi Grand Prix winner was Anja Nissen. Her “Where I Am” convinced the Danish people to send her to Kyiv. She finished in twentieth in the Grand Final. For 2018, the Danes will be hoping to turn their luck, as their last top ten result dates back to 2014, when Basim scored a ninth place on home soil.
