Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2018 Odds

DR, the Danish national broadcaster, revealed details about the upcoming edition of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix at a press conference . The city of Aalborg will host Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2018 in the Gigantium, which has a capacity of 8,500. This is the seventh time that the Gigantium will host the Danish national final. The last time that the contest came to Aalborg was in 2015. Tickets for the event are expected to go on sale in autumn. The winner of the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix gets the honor of representing Denmark at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018, held in Portugal's capital, Lisbon, in May 2018, after the country secured its first Eurovision victory ever.

Anja Nissen represented Denmark at Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv, Ukraine. She brought Denmark back to their first Eurovision Song Contest final since hosting the contest in 2014. “Where I Am” narrowly qualified for the final beating Serbia by just three points in the second semi-final. In the final Denmark finished 20th with a total of 77 points, of which just 8 points came from the televote.

Dansk Melodi Grand Prix will take place on February 10 2018. Annette Heick and Johannes Nymark will return to host the contest for the second year in a row. Annette Heick and Johannes Nymark shared a kiss during the Danish Melody Grand Prix earlier this year. As in 2017, the DMGP final will see ten songs in two races. In the first, the vote will be divided, half for viewers, half for a jury of five fans and experts. Three superfinalists will be appointed. For a second vote, the vote will be shared in the same way and the Danish representative for 2018 will be designated among these three superfinalists.

Dansk Melodi Grand Prix has undergone significant changes for the upcoming edition. Songs can be submitted year round but only those submitted before September 15th will be considered for the 2018 selection. Any songs submitted after this time will be considered for Eurovision 2019.

In recent years a position as Music-responsible has been used. That job title is being cancelled, and a new position called “bidrags-producer” (Contribution producer) has been made. It will be singer and Viewing Room Producer at the Eurovision Song Contest the past four years, Mads Enggaard who has been given the title. He will be responsible for the entire process from selecting the songs to the victory in the Danish final.

He states that it is not only about the music and lyrics, but the way it looks on screen, and displayed to the wider viewing audience.  Mads has also tendered that songs shouldn't be amateurish and must if possible be recorded in a music studio.  To Mr Enggard this shows that effort has been put into a song.  From the talk, there seems to be a great emphasis on producing the best song.  Denmark really want to win in 2018, as there seems to be fighting talk going on.   Essentially they want a song that not only looks good on paper, but also sounds good on it too.  For information regarding the rules can be found directly on the DR website.
