Denmark: Basim will sing for the host nation with ‘Cliche Love Song’ 38

After a fantastic night with ten really strong and fun songs, Denmark whittled it down to one.

This year’s host country showed Europe that after Emmelie’s victory there’s still one or two good musicians kicking around near Copenhagen. It wasn’t an easy decision but after the first round of performances there were three finalists: Basim with ‘Cliche Love Song’, Michael Rune feat. Natascha Bessez with ‘Wanna Be Loved’ and Rebekka Thornbech with ‘Your Lies’. Our readers correctly predicted two of the top three!

After a reprise of their songs jury votes were combined with televotes and Basim was announced as Denmark’s representative for Copenhagen 2014 with ‘Cliche Love Song’. Are you feeling it? Do you think that Denmark has a shot at winning for a second year in a row?

Winner:

Basim (1st Place with 30 Points):

Runners Up:

Rebekka Thornbech (2nd Place with 15 Points):

Michael Rune feat. Natascha Bessez (2nd Place with 15 Points):

Cliche Love Song Lyrics:

Skuba duba dubda dididay
Skuba duba dubda dididay, I love you

I met this lady
She was looking so damn fine
But she was crazy
It was all about party time

And lately
I felt like something’s wrong
So flaky and shaky
When the sun went down

It was boom boom boom
When she walked the room
Even girls, they whistle
I know it’s hard to get her
She’s a special girl

It feels like
Skuba duba dubda dididay
Skuba duba dubda dididay, I love you
A damn cliché baby

Skuba duba dubda dididay
Baby I’m-a do whatever you like, I love you
A damn cliché baby

Oh oh oh – hey
Oh oh oh – hey
Oh oh oh – hey
A damn cliché baby

Like Katy Perry
She could kiss a lucky girl
Taste like cherry
She could rock your world

Cloud seven
I never felt like this before
She took me closer to heave
Oh my God, let’s go

It was boom boom boom
When she walked the room
Even girls, they whistle
I know it’s hard to get her
She’s a special girl

It feels like
Skuba duba dubda dididay
Skuba duba dubda dididay, I love you
A damn cliché baby

Skuba duba dubda dididay
Baby I’m-a do whatever you like, I love you
A damn cliché baby

Now tell me what I gotta do
Just give that little clue
A damn cliché baby

Now I’m just feeling blue
I gotta break through to you, yeah
A damn cliché baby

It feels like
Skuba duba dubda dididay
Skuba duba dubda dididay
I love you
A damn cliché baby

Skuba duba dubda dididay
Baby I’m-a do whatever you like, I love you
A damn cliché baby

Skuba duba dubda dididay
Skuba duba dubda dididay, I love you
A damn cliché baby

Skuba duba dubda dididay
Baby I’m-a do whatever you like, I love you
A damn cliché love song
