Tina Muller says:
The Danish Melodi Grand Prix is a huge folk festival and after two years without an audience, I am most looking forward to host the competition with a packed audience at Boxen cheering and supporting and celebrating the 8 competing acts. We need to create a terrific atmosphere that can be felt in earnest – both in the venue and at home in the living rooms. This is an evening where we all share a real party full of colour and joy.
