Denmark 2021: Dansk Melodi Grand Prix presenters revealed!

DR, the Danish public broadcaster will broadcast the Danish national final for Eurovision on Saturday, March 6.  Eight contestants will take part in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix this year.  There will be no audience during this national final.  However, the contestants will perform accompanied by the Grand Prix Orchestra.

Today the Melodi Grand Prix presenters were revealed.  Tina Müller and Martin Brygmann will host the Danish national final.  Tina Müller is well known as a sports news presenter.  She has also hosted major live shows.

Martin Bryggmann is an actor, comedian and musician.  This is his first time hosting the DMGP.  However, he is no stranger to the Danish national selection.  He has been a member of the professional juror in the past and co-wrote 2005’s song I Must Be Crazy by the group Sweethearts.

In February 10  we will get to know the names of the 2021 DMGP contestants.  The names of the artists and their songs will be revealed in 3 different radio shows: ‘P3 Buffeten’ (on DR P3 between 9.04 and noon), “Formiddag på 4’eren” (on DR P4 between 10.03 and noon) and “P4 Play” (airs on DR P4 from 12.15 to 14.00) on Wednesday 10 February until 2 pm (Danish time).  The songs will be public at 2 pm on and the DR’s Grand Prix app.

The winner of the DMGP will be decided exclusively by the vote of the audience.

Ben & Tan won 2020 DMGP and were set to represent Denmark in Eurovision.  Tan has already ruled out a 2021 participation:

“I feel we would take the place from some others. After all, we have tried to be part of the show. It must be someone else’s trip next year. That is most fair. And you can run the risk of going again and then lose, and that’s what people remember. So we would rather leave it to victory and then otherwise focus on our music.”


Let’s enjoy Ben & Tan’s winning performance from the 2020 Dansk Melodi Grand Prix

Denmark: DMGP 2021 final on 6th of March | The winner will sing with live backing vocals at Eurovision!

Another country that had not announced the details of its national final, did so a while ago. Danish Public Broadcaster will host DMGP 2021 on March 6, at a television studio in Copenhagen, with 8 finalists. Unlike what happens in the national finals of most countries, both the contestants in DMGP 2021 and the representative of Denmark on the stage of Eurovision afterwards, will compete with live backing vocals.

The submission of entries for DMGP 2021 has started and the deadline will last until November 20. Foreign creators are allowed as long as the performer is Danish or has a close relationship with the country (permanent resident, active discography, etc.). 8 songs will compete in the final of DMGP 2021. The main difference between DMGP and the rest of the national finals in Europe is that the contestants must have live backing vocals. In fact, the winner of the national final, who will then represent Denmark in Eurovision 2021, will not make use of the regulation that allows for the next Eurovision Song Contest the pre-recorded vocals, since they will be live on the stage of Ahoy.

We remind you that this year’s DMGP winners, Ben & Tan, have already stated in the spring that they will not reclaim Denmark’s representation at Eurovision 2021.
