Sneak peek at Danish preparations

Danish broadcaster DR has allowed fans a sneak peek at the set for Saturday's national selection by adding a live webcam to their Eurovision website. The cam points directly at the stage, and patient viewers will glimpse TV production crew as they come and go in preparation for Saturday's show.

Visitors to the Melodi Grand Prix website can also read about this year's artists and songs, watch the TV trailer for the show, as well as download a score sheet ready to score the songs from the comfort of the sofa.

Ten entries will go head to head at Aalborg's Gigantium on 11th February with the hope of becoming Denmark's representative in Athens. Former Danish representatives Søren Poppe (Rollo and King, 2001) and Trine Jepsen (who sang with Michael Teschl in 1999) are amongst the competitors. Trine has seemingly traded Michael in for a new face this year, in the guise of Christian Bach. Together, they perform Grib mig on Saturday.

The winner of Saturday's final will proceed directly to the international final in Athens, thanks to Jakob Sveistrup's tenth place in Kyiv.
