A new week, time for Denmark trivia, the first Scandinavian nation we’ve reached in this quiz series and for many fans, the Scandinavian nations have a lot of fan favourites. Denmark is no exception. Anyway, they have been in the contest for a long time so there are questions from all over their participation here.
With some weeks before we begin looking forward to Eurovision 2019, it’s that time in a Eurovision fan’s year to reflect on past years and all the good music and events they brought. And, also, some trivia.
So You Think You Know… is a series that will arrive each Wednesday, each time focusing on a new active Eurovision country. We are continuing alphabetically, Estonia will be next.
