DENMARK AT EUROVISION
Denmark first entered the Eurovision Song Contest in 1957 and up to now have won the contest three times, in 1963 with Dansevise by Grethe and Jørgen Ingmann, in 2000 with Fly on the Wings of Love by the Olsen Brothers and in 2013 with Only Teardrops by Emmelie De Forest . Last year they were represented by Reddi with their song “The Show “, unfortunately, they did not make it out of their semi final into the Grand Final. Will Denmark have better luck in 2023?
