2018 saw the artist Rasmussen win the DMGP 2018, with the song Higher ground. With a performance that reminded the Viking Age, he managed to finish within Lisbon’s Top 10, coming 9th with 228, from both the public and the national juries.

The 64th Eurovision Song Contest will be taking place on 14, 16 and 18 May at the EXPO International Convention Center in Tel Aviv, Israel. The show will be hosted by Bar Refaeli, Assi Azar, Lucy Ayoub and Erez Tal.
