Songs February 10th – Final on March 5th
The submission window was open till October 29 and now we know that we get to hear the final eight songs, who will compete to represent Denmark in Eurovision 2022, on February 10. The final will take place on March 5th and will be hosted by Tina Müller together with Martin Brygmann for the second year in a row. For the sixth time, the Danish representative will be chosen in Herning. Tickets for the show are already on sale as a live audience will return for the first time since 2019!
Moreover, it was also revealed, that this year’s artist Fyr og Flamme will be opening the show in Herning.
Denmark at Eurovision 2021
Back in April last year, DR wasted no time in confirming that they would be hosting Dansk Melodi Grand Prix in 2021, and thus would not be internally-selecting Ben & Tan following the cancellation of Eurovision 2020. Although the duo submitted an entry for the selection, the broadcaster ended up declining it.
In March, DR hosted DMGP as a one-night selection featuring eight competing acts. Following two rounds, Fyr & Flamme’s “Øve os på hinanden” triumphed in the televote-only super final. The song was DR’s first entry to be entirely in Danish since 1997. The entry had immense public support prior to Eurovision, becoming the first Danish Eurovision entry to top the singles chart since 2013.
Unfortunately, this didn’t quite convert to success in Rotterdam. After closing the second semi-final, “Øve os på hinanden” placed 11th with 89 points. This was Denmark’s first non-qualification since 2016.
