This week Rasmussen appeared on The Euro Trip to relive his experience at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal.
Rasmussen was the Danish representative at the contest in 2018 with a fan favourite “Higher Ground” where he finished in 9th place. During the podcast when asked if he would return to the contest either as a singer or songwriter Rasmussen responded:
Yeah, definitely. If the right song comes along that fits me then I would love to be an artist again at Eurovision. If I write a song that fits somebody very well that could go to Eurovision, then definitely.
Rasmussen later discussed his experience working with his backing singers, as well as making reference to the recent rule change at the upcoming 2021 contest where pre-recorded backing vocalists will be permitted, to which he said:
It wouldn’t have been the same experience without my guys [backing singers] there. Because we got to know each other very well and they’re such great people. It was extremely important for me to share this with someone. So I’m very afraid some countries want to save money and decide not to bring back up for the solo artists.
