The Danish Broadcaster DR have now officially released the names of those participating in the upcoming national final, Dansk Melodi Grand Prix. The show is due to be held on the 25th of February, and there will be a total of 10 acts participating in the show. Here are the 10 acts competing:
Ida Una – One
Thomas Ring – Vesterbro
Rikke Gunner – Color My World
Anja – Where I Am
Calling Mercury – Big Little Lies
Anthony – Smoke in my Eyes
René Machon – Warriors
Sada Vidoo – Northern Lights
Jeanette Bonde – Hurricane
Johanna Beijbom – ASAP
From the list, the names that stand out are Anja, who participated in the 2016 national final and came a close second, and Sada Vidoo, who previously participated in the UK X Factor. Interestingly, Johanna Beijbom has performed at Eurovision before as a backing vocalist for Loreen, Olivia Lewis, Anti Social Media and more, meaning she’s not afraid of the Eurovision stage.
Unfortunately, we’re still going to have to wait to hear the songs. DR have confirmed that eager Eurovision fans will have to wait until the 20th of February, less than a week before the final takes place.
The show will be held in Jyske Bank Bodcen Arena in Herning, and will be hosted by Annette Heick and former Lighthouse X singer Johannes Nymark.
