We will be having a male-female couple hosting the Danish national final this year, Martin Brygmman and Tinna Muller.

Tina Muller says:

I am extremely proud to be allowed to host something as traditional as the Danish Melodi Grand Prix. I myself grew up with the Grand Prix and, like many others, have stood with the hairbrush in hand and sung along in front of the television, so I am really looking forward to being part of the party and gathering the Danes.

Martin Brygmann says:

I’m really looking forward to it. I’m so proud to have been given this task. It’s a very fine torch I look forward to carrying forward. A legendary show.
