As a new twist, DR organised a semi-final leading up to Dansk Melodi Grand Prix this year!
It’s a radio final we’re talking about!
Nine artists competing but divided over different regions of Denmark, with each P4 radio station of the districts involved.
We had a Northern region (P4 Nordjylland, P4 Midt & Vest og P4 Østjylland), the Eastern region (P4 Sjælland, P4 København og P4 Bornholm) and the Southern region (P4 Fyn, P4 Syd og P4 Trekanten).
Each region will deliver one extra participant to the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix final and here are the winners of their regions (in bold):
- Sander Sanchez
- BEN & TAN
- Søren Okholm
- Jamie Talbot
- Kenny Duerlund
- Nick Jones
Five entries are directly qualified to the final already, they will now have company of the three abovementioned winners. Among those not qualifying not qualifying from this voting now, DR will select two wild card entries, so the total of competing entries in the final becomes ten!
The Dansk Melodi Grand Prix final will take place on the 7th of March where jury and televoters (50%/50%) will first select a top 3 for the superfinal and then will again have a 50% each in the superfinal to decide who becomes the Danish representative in Rotterdam in May!
