Denmark: Reiley Will Remain in DMGP 2023

The Danish broadcaster DR has confirmed to Ekstra Bladet that Reiley will not be disqualified from Dansk Melodi Grand Prix.  Previously, Reiley revealed on Instagram that he performed his song live during the Slow Life Slow Live festival in Seoul, South Korea last autumn, which put him at the risk of being disqualified from the national selection:

The artist complies with the EBU’s guidelines for possible participation in Eurovision. As is clear from DR’s own guidelines, cases like this are a matter of assessment. Based on the given circumstances surrounding the individual playing of the track at a concert in South Korea in October, DR does not consider that the artist has gained a competitive advantage in relation to a Danish audience and participation in DMGP.

The national selection will take place on February 11 in the Næstved Arena in Næstved. Tina Müller and Heino Hansen will host the show.

The competing entries are:

  1. maia maia – “Beautiful Bullshit”
  2. Reiley – “Breaking My Heart”
  3. Nicklas Sonne – “Freedom”
  4. Micky Skeel – “Glansbillede” (Picture perfect)
  5. Mariyah LeBerg – “Human”
  6. EYJAA – “I Was Gonna Marry Him”
  7. Søren Torpegaard Lund – “Lige her” (Right here)
  8. Frederik Leopold – “Stuck on You

Currently according to the Danske Spil, EYJAA and Riley have equal chances of advancing to Eurovision, while Nicklas Sonne is relatively close enough to challenge them both.
