DR, Denmark’s state broadcaster, does not believe in instant gratification. Although we’ve known the acts competing in tonight’s Dansk Melodi Grand Prix final for months, DR only revealed the full versions of the songs yesterday. Luckily our readers are real aggressive and they still managed to cast a total of 444 votes in the past 12 hours. The results suggest that tonight’s showdown in Odense is gonna be tight.
Top 3 Finishers
1. Michael Rune feat. Natascha Bessez — “Wanna Be Loved”
Michael Rune came out on top with 17% of all votes. His song, which features vocals by Natascha Bessez, will likely benefit from Miss Bessez’s non-vocal assets. Just do a Google Image search and you’ll see what we mean. “Touch me where my heart is,” she says. “We can get this started, Baby pay me Fifty Shades of Grey.” We have no doubt lots of men will want to touch her where her heart is.
2. Bryan Rice — “I Choose U”
Bryan is everyone’s sentimental favourite, as he finished second in 2010. We’re not fans of songs that replace the word “You” with the letter “U”, but apparently our readers don’t mind. It’s a happy, upbeat song about the madness of falling in love. “You hit me like ‘Whoah,'” he says. “Never fallen so fast, I’m out of control ’cause I got it so bad.”
3. Rebekka Thornbech – “Your Lies”
Continuing the trend of folk and country at ESC 2014, Rebekka’s song is one of our personal favourites. It sounds like mainstream country music, and this woman can sing. Playful yet refined, Rebekka asks a lot of questions with this one: “What if I let you buy my drink? What if you want me dressed in pink?”
