Denmark in the Eurovision Song Contest
Denmark first appeared in the contest in the second edition in 1957 and participated in total of 46 times. It won the contest three times: in 1963 with Grethe and Jørgen Ingmann, in 2000 with the Olsen Brothers and 2013 with Emmelie de Forest. Since the introduction of the semi-finals in 2004, it failed to reach the final on four occasions. In Lisbon, Rasmussen’s “Higher Ground” flew the Danish flag. He reached 9th place in the grand final with 229 points. It was Denmark’s first top 10 result since 2014 when the contest took place on home soil.
