DR has announced a new commentary duo for the Eurovision Song Contest, Henrik Milling and Nicolai Molbech.
Radio DJ’s Henrik Milling and Nicolai Molbech have been named by the Danish public broadcaster as the new commentators for the Eurovision Song Contest. The duo replace Ole Tøpholm who had been commentating for the Danish broadcaster at the contest since 2011.
Henrik Milling has previously been a juror at DMGP and Eurovision, while Nicolai Molbech was the Danish commentator between 2008 and 2010. Nicola commented:
A lot has happened with Eurovision since then. The show has gotten even bigger and wilder, and I look forward to experiencing that again. And then I think it’s going to be cool that we’re two in the commentator box this time
The Head of Entertainment at DR Jan Lagermand Lundme explained that:
In the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, we have in the last few years increased our focus on the music itself, and therefore it is very natural to carry that line on to Eurovision, he says and adds:
With Henrik and Nicolai, there will be two very strong musical forces behind the microphone in the Danish commentator box. They both have a huge knowledge of music that they can use to help viewers get an even greater musical experience out of the Eurovision show.
Fyr Og Flamme will perform in the second half of the 2nd Semi-Final on May 20th.
