Just a few days ago, the Danish broadcaster has opened submissions for Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2023, which will be open until October 28 at 12:00 CET and as revealed by DR, a total of 8 songs are going to compete in the live show, which will be chosen by a selection comittee of DR.
The Danish City Næstved in the region of Sjælland will be the official host for the Danish national final, as announced by DR. The final will be held in Arena Næstved on Saturday, the 11th of February 2023, which you can already mark in your calendar as a Super Saturday, as many other national selections (including the final of Eesti Laul or the second semi-final of Melodifestivalen) are set to take place on the same evening. The city’s mayor Carsten Rasmussen has shown excitement and joy about the upcoming hosting:
We are happy that DR has chosen Næstved as Grand Prix City 2023. If we have to say so ourselves, it is quite obvious, because Næstved is a city with lots of music culture. We have even hatched two grand prix winners: From Næstved Musikskole singer and actress Flora Ofelia, who won the children’s melody grand prix in 2015, and from Næstved Ungdomsskole drummer Ihan Haydar (REDDI), who won the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix in 2012 and will also compete in 2022. We are ready to stand together and put another folk festival on its feet

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!
