For another year, Denmark has chosen to participate in the Eurovision contest through the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix (DMGP).
Compared to the previous year, this year radio semifinals were held, which also defined half of the finalists. Another difference is that in the super final the public exclusively decided the big winner of the institution and the representative of the country in the ESC. But the most significant change over the years was that the music at the DMGP 2020 final was accompanied by a live orchestra, namely Antonelli Orchestra, Denmark’s most famous live orchestra! It also needs to be mentioned the fact that spectators were not arriving at the Royal Arena where the night of the coronation was held.
The big winners of the DMGP 2020 were Ben & Tan with the song “Yes”. In fact, in the second round of voting, in the super final, the duo garnered more than 60%! Surprisingly, the other big favorite of the night is Jasmin Rose ft. Roxorloops limited to 8th place!
In the first phase of the vote the result was judged by 50% by a committee and by 50% by the television audience.
