#Eurovision Ireland reviews: Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2013

Those of you who regularly look in on our site may recall that last year , Eurovision Ireland did a series of video reviews of past National Finals. During this Eurovision close season, we decided to take some more trips down the National Final memory lane, looking at finals that produced an actual Eurovision Song Contest winner and questioning; would any of the acts in those national finals have still produced a victory for their country?

Today, we have taken a trip back to 2013 and the Danish Melodi Grand Prix, which was held at the Jyske Bank Boxen in Hjerning, Denmark on 26th January 2013. The presenters were Lise Rønne, Louise Wolff and Sofie Lassen-Kahlke . Ten songs competed and there were two rounds of voting with three songs going through from the first round to a Superfinal , chosen by a combination of jury and public votes. On the Jury panel were Jørgen de Mylius, Lis Sørensen, Maria Lucia Heiberg Rosenberg, Mich Hedin Hansen and Thomas Kato Vittrup.

We reviewed all ten songs with each of us giving our thoughts on two songs each . We then discussed whether we thought any of the Superfinal acts would have done as well as Emmelie de Forest or worse. Take a look and see what we thought .

You can see the acts for yourself , in order of performance , below :

(1) Jeg har hele tiden vidst det -Frederikke Vedel
