Anja Nissen represented Denmark at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest 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.
