And then there were three…

Whoever built the Messe C Arena in Fredericia probably thought columns in the main hall would be ruul ruul cute.  Well, his/her vanity has just cost the region the chance of hosting Eurovision next year.

DR, the Danish host broadcaster, informed all host applicants of a number of prerequisites for a successful bid, and sadly Fredericia didn’t meet the bar. So now we are down to three host cities in the running to host ESC 2014 — Horsens, Herning and Copenhagen.

Just to remind you, Horsens wants to put us in a prison (literally), while Herning wants us to have to travel 90km daily from the nearest sizable city (Arhus). I’m hoping and praying that Copenhagen takes home the cake — after slumming it in a city of 400,000 this year, it’d be great to experience Eurovision in a larger city again.

Time will tell, y’all, so stay tuned!

I was an American exchange student in Herning in the late 90s, and although I have wonderful memories of the area, nothing fills me with dread more than the idea of Eurovision being held there. I have been back and have seen the incredible changes the town has gone through in the past several years, but the fact remains that Copenhagen is the best face of Denmark. Aarhus is a great city, and there many wonderful things in driving distance of Herning, but none of them are actually IN Herning, and it will be unfair to ask Eurovision fans like… Read more »
