Danish broadcaster, DR has revealed both the commentators and spokesperson for Eurovision Song Contest 2021. The new commentators are the radio DJ’s Nicolai Molbech and Henrik Milling. The two of them will be replacing Ole Tøpholm who was the one to provide commentary for DR since 2011. Prior to that in a period from 2008 to 2010 it was Nicolai Molbech to comment the show so he is back and about it he said:
A lot has happened with Eurovision since then. The show has gotten even bigger and wilder, and I look forward to experiencing that again. And then I think it’s going to be cool that we’re two in the commentator box this time

Henrik Milling has also been previously involved with Eurovision as the juror at both Danish national final Dansk Melodi Grand Prix and Eurovision 2019.
In the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, we have in the last few years increased our focus on the music itself, and therefore it is very natural to carry that line on to Eurovision, he says and adds:With Henrik and Nicolai, there will be two very strong musical forces behind the microphone in the Danish commentator box. They both have a huge knowledge of music that they can use to help viewers get an even greater musical experience out of the Eurovision show.

That wasn’t the only news revealed by the DR as they announced Tina Müller as the one who will be sharing the results of the Danish jury during the final evening of Eurovision Song Contest 2021. Alongside Martin Brygmann, Tina was the one to host this year’s Dansk Melodi Grand Prix.
To stand in front of 200 million viewers immediately sounds a bit violent, but conversely, it only lasts 20 seconds. It’s a really fun and legendary task, which I am very much looking forward to. In my book, it should not be about me, but about the artists, those who perform, and the show itself. So I hope to be able to present it stylishly and without joking. One thing is for sure, you will not hear me break out in song – and I think you should be happy about that!
