Denmark in Eurovision
The Danes entered the Eurovision house in 1961. They have had a long Eurovision tradition, having reached the top three times, the last being in 2013 with Emmelie de Forest and Only teardrops.
Last year, the act that was chosen to fly the Danish flag were Ben & Tan, which would have sung Yes. However, due to the unprecedented cancellation of the event, they never reached the contest’s stage.
Denmark is set to perform in the second half of the second semi-final on 20 May.
