#DENMARK – DANSK MELODI GRAND PRIX ARTISTS REVEALED

melodiThis year Denmark celebrates the 60th edition of their selection for Eurovision Song Contest. What a great number to celebrate!

The interest to take part in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix was really high this year with a high record  of 1,115  songs submitted.

Only 10 acts were chosen and between them we can find:

  • Two X Factor winners: Thomas Ring, who won the third season in 2010, and Anthony, who won the program in 2014 as part of duo Anthony Jasmin.
  • Another winner of a talent show  Anja, who won The Voice in Australia in 2014 and last year ended up in second place in the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix with the song ‘Never Alone’.
  • Also René Machon returns to the Grand Prix scene for the second time. He participated in 2015 with the song ‘Mi Amore’.
  • Livind doll Sada Vidoo, which last year impressed the judges in the British version of X Factor.
