The Danish national selection is drawing closer. In less than two weeks the ten candidates will compete to convince the audience and the juries that they are the best choice for Denmark in the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest. And just gave the fans a taste of the scene on which the ten contenders will be singing on 7 February at the Gigantium.

Every music event needs a scene. In fact, in the Eurovision Song Contest and many of the national selections it is a significant item which may raise as much attention and expectation as the entries around it. What is sought for is a scene that matches the grandeur of the event and which, at the same time, pulls the attention towards the performers.

The Dansk MGP is not an exception when it comes to the design of the stage. And this year’s stage is ready, but unseen yet… Although the Danish broadcaster DR, through its site, has revealed some details of what the scene of the MGP will look like with the help of the set designer Claus Zier.

One important, and a pivotal detail of this year’s scene in Aalborg, is that it will be completely circular. It might sound like something trivial, but once Claus Ziel explains the idea behind it, the design takes a new meaning. From the workshops of DR Byen, the headquarters of the Danish broadcaster, Zier explains that the amphitheater-looking stage will communicate that there is audience all around the scene, with a big screen on top of it; and that everything will be happening right in the middle.

The round scene that will see the ten Danish candidates is something you look forward to seeing with its 17-meter diameter, added Zier.
