Denmark at 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.
