Denmark opens submissions for Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2023

Denmark’s EBU broadcaster DR has just opened the submissions for Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2023, which will again be the Danish national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. Dansk Melodi Grand Prix has selected the Danish Eurovision entries from the very beginning, with the first ever winner being “Skibet skal sejle i nat“, performed by Birthe Wilke & Gustav Winckler, becoming the first Danish Eurovision act in 1957.

For the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest, submissions are open until October 28 at 12:00 CET and a total of 8 entries will compete in the live show. The finalists of DMGP will be chosen by a selection comittee of DR.

On the DR website, you can find all the rules and regulations for the competition. While most of the rules are the same as for all the other participating countries, Denmark has clear rules about international submissions:

Either the composer, lyricist or performing artist must be a Danish citizen or have a similarly strong connection to Denmark. (Residence in Denmark for a number of years, married or in a relationship with a Dane or similar).

This year’s Dansk Melodi Grand Prix was won by the girl group REDDI, with the song “The Show”. Sadly, they did not manage to go further than the semi-finals in Turin, ending up 13th place out of 17 participants in the first semi final!
