Denmark: OGAE Denmark to Help Select Melodi Grand Prix 2019 Entries

OGAE Denmark has revealed that they will be involved in selecting the entries that will compete in Melodi Grand Prix 2019.

OGAE Denmark is asking its members to register their interest in being on the pre-jury for Melodi Grand Prix 2019. The fan club will be involved in helping to select the songs that will make it on to the Melodi Grand Prix 2019 stage. OGAE Denmark has been involved in helping to select the songs competing in the Danish Eurovision selection process for the past couple of years.

Herning is set to host the final of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix for a fifth time, as Denmark selects for the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 on February 23. Herning has proved a successful venue for producing strong results for Denmark at the Eurovision Song Contest. In 2001, Rollo & King went on to finish 2nd at Eurovision, while 2013 winner Emmelie de Forest won Dansk Melodi Grand Prix when Herning hosted the national final.
