Watch now: Dansk Melodi Grand Prix in Denmark

by Fernando Méndez 160 views

The Danish broadcaster DR will have the decision tonight on which of its ten candidates will represent the country in the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest. The national final Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2015 will be held and broadcast live this evening.

About the show

The Dansk MGP is a tradition in Denmark. It has seen years of galas and performances by artists longing to sing for the Nordic country in the Eurovision Song Contest. Like the latter, the Danish national final is permanently evolving. This year, the event has been upgraded to a Version 2.0 whose outcome will be seen tonight.

The voting system to choose the winner, and hence the Danish Eurovision entry, is one of the renovated features. Five juries, one from each of the five Danish regions, will cast their votes (from 1 to 8, 10 and 12) to the participating entries. The Danish audience will have their say, too, as they will be able to cast their votes from home, in one single pool. The juries and the public votes will have 50% of the weight in the final decision.

The scene set at the Gigantium in Aalborg, Denmark, is also in tune with the spirit of renovation of Version 2.0. Designed by Claus Zier, the stage is a display of round lines and shapes that make it impressive while pulling the eyes of the public to the center of the event: the singers.

The entrants and their songs, as previously announced, are these:

  1. Sara Sukurani Love me love me
  2. Tina & René Mi amore
  3. Marcel & Soulman Group – Når veje krydses
  4. Cecilie Alexandra Hotel A
  5. Andy RodaLove is love
  6. Julie Bjerre – Tæt på mine drømme
  7. Anti Social Media The way you are
  8. Anne Gadegaard – Suitcase
  9. BabouManjana
  10. World of GirlsSummer without you

You can find more information about the artists here.

The gala will be host by Jacob Riising and Sven Bjerre.

Last year’s Danish Eurovision singer Basim will be featuring in the interval act.

The story so far

Denmark has had quite a few successful entrants in the Eurovision Song Contest. Three victories with Dansevise sung by Grethe & Jørgen Ingmann in 1963, Fly on the wings of love by the Olsen Brothers in 2000 and Emmelie de Forest in 2013 with Only teardrops. This will be no excuse for tonight’s winner, who will certainly go to Vienna aiming at bringing the Eurovision Song Contest back to Denmark in 2016.
