DR, the Danish national broadcaster, has confirmed that they will be competing in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 being held in Israel.
Denmark has become one of the latest countries to confirm their participation in Eurovision 2019. DR confirmed to ESCtoday that we will be seeing Denmark in the contest in May 2019. They are the fourth of five Scandinavian nations to confirm their Eurovision 2019 participation.
It’s likely thought that Denmark will continue to use their current selection method, Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, to choose their Eurovision entry. DR will reveal their plans for the Eurovision Song COntest 2019 in the near future.
Rasmussen won the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix back in February and represented Denmark at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal. Following his DMGP victory, Rasmussen attended the pre-parties in London, Tel Aviv, and Amsterdam.
Denmark debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1957 alongside Austria and the United Kingdom. To date Denmark has won the contest on three occasions, the first being in 1963 when Grethe & Jorgen Ingmann performed “Dansevise”. Denmark won the contest again in 2000 represented by the Olsen Brothers, their most recent victory came in 2013 when Emmelie de Forest performed “Only Teardrops”. Denmark failed to qualify for the final of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2015 and 2016.
