In less than a month time, we’ll known who will be the next representative for Denmark, and to make it better for the Danish competitor this year, the national final will be held with a live audience for the first time since 2019.
Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2022
The Danish national final will take place on March 5th, in Herning. The final will consist of 8 acts that will first compete for 3 spots in the superfinal, and then a final round where the winner is decided.
In 2020 and 2021, the national final was held in Copenhagen. The 2020 national final was set to be the first time in about two decades, to take place in the capital of Denmark. However, despite the final was held, it was held in an empty Royal Arena since Denmark ended up being the only nation to hold a final without an audience back then, when the ongoing pandemic started. 2021 was once again held in Copenhagen, but this time behind closed doors in a studio in DR Byen.
2022 will now mark the return of a live audience, since Denmark has completely terminated any law regarding the coronavirus. (Masks and tests are only mandatory for certain places, such as hospitals and airports.)
These are the lucky 8, who’ll be able to welcome back the live audience and you can listen to them right here:
- Conf3ssions – “Hallelujah”
- Der Var Engang – “En Skønne Dag”
- Fuld Effekt – “Rave Med De Hårde Drenge”
- Josie Elinor & Jack Warren – “Let Me Go”
- Juncker – “Kommer For At Blive”
- Morten Fillipsen – “Happy Go Lucky”
- Patrick Dorgan – “Vinden Suser Ind”
- Reddi – “The Show”
A new voting mechanic will also be introduced this year for Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, the national broadcaster (DR) has announced that starting from the 28th of February and until the day before the national final, people can vote for the songs through the official DMGP App.
These votes will be used and combined with the open vote during the live show, and will help decide which 3 acts move on to the superfinal. In the superfinal, everything then be reset and from there, a decision will be made on who will represent the Danish flag in Turin, later this year.
Last year, Fyr og Flamme had the honor of representing Denmark with the first song fully in Danish since 1997, unfortunately the duo just missed out of qualification to the final with an 11th place finish in the second semi-final. They represented the country with the song “Øve Os På Hinanden“.
