Shortly after the end of this year’s ESC held in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Denmark announced that they would be participating in next year’s contest in Italy .Today they have confirmed a date , venue and hosts for next year’s Dansk Melodi Grand Prix . It will be held on 5th March, this year moving away from the capital , Copenhagen and returning to an old favourite venue, The Jyske Bank Boxen in Herning, where Denmark’s last ESC winner, Emmelie de Forrest , won in 2013.
This year, the hosts will remain as last year with Tina Müller and Martin Brygmann leading the proceedings on the night.
For the first time in 2 years , the contest will return to having a full live audience , which has been missing the last couple of years due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It has also been announced that Herning and other surrounding cities will offer a number of cultural activities in the build up to the contest . These will be announced in the New Year.
This year Fyr og Flamme won the honour of representing Denmark in Rotterdam with their all Danish language song “Øve os på hinanden”. Unfortunately, they just failed to make the Grand Final, finishing 11th in semi final 2.
