Earlier today, the 3 hosts of the Danish national final, Jacob Riising, Annette Heick and Hilda Heick took to the stage in order to continue with their rehearsals before Saturday’s event. However during rehearsals, it became noticeable that Annette was not on her usual top form due to illness.

Speaking to DR following rehearsals, Anna revealed:

I have had a high fever and huge headaches in the night and have been really “ugh”. But now I can stand up, so I will be 100 percent ready to Saturday! And I am sure that I will be ready for Friday’s rehearsals.

DMGP 2016 will take place this Saturday on the 13 February and will air at 20:00 CET on DR1. Ten acts will be bidding for the right to represent the nation at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest. Who will succeed Anti Social Media and become the next Danish representative?
