Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2022 takes place on March 5th from Jyske Bank Boxen in Herning. The final is hosted by Tina Müller and Martin Brygmann. Denmark’s 2021 representatives Fyr & Flamme will open the show. Denmark will compete in the first semifinal of the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin. The Danish representative is set to perform on the second half of the show.
Denmark at Eurovision 2021
Similarly as this year, in 2021 DR hosted the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 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.
