The Show must go on!
Danish broadcaster DR announced last week that the final of the 53th edition of the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix will be held on February 11 in the city of Næstved. It will be the first time that DMGP will be hosted in Næstved, a city of about 44.000 people. Eight acts will compete for the honor of representing Denmark in the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest 2023. In addiction to the standard eligibility rules, there are some extra rules, including one that states that all vocals must be performed live. Entries can be submitted until the 28th of October via the DR ‘s submission page.
Denmark in the Eurovision Song Contest
Out of 51 total participations, Denmark has won the Eurovision Song Contest three times – in 1963, 2000 and 2013, and placed in the top 3 seven times.
Earlier this year in Turin, pop-rock band Reddi gave us a throwback to the 70s when they represented Denmark with the song “The Show”. They placed 13th in Semi Final 1 with a total of 55 points.
