Hej Danmark! Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2015 — Denmark’s national selection for Eurovision — takes place on February 7. So the Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of musical unprofessionals — will review the ten acts that will compete. Next up it’s Anne Gadegaard and her song “Suitcase”. Do we ask her to unpack and stay for a while? Read on to find out…

Reviews: Anne Gadegaard’s “Suitcase”

Deban: Go pack your bags. You never know when Vienna calls. “Suitcase” tells a powerful story about a teenage girl leaving her hometown to pursue her dream. The whistles and acoustic guitar give off a homely vibe. In areas where this track appears to be somewhat overcooked (the bridge), Gadegaard’s vocals retain a magical innocence. This isn’t another cliche song about love, or hitting the clubs. “Suitcase” is packed with positivity, hope and motivation.

Score: 8/10

Denise: Oh, I loved “Arabiens drom”. It’s great to hear that this girl wants to get back on the Eurovision stage. I’m glad she didn’t disappoint me. The song is so sweet and catchy. It wouldn’t surprise me is she will get the golden ticket to Vienna. We already know that she can sing and she can handle the tension of the Eurovision adventure.

Score: 8.5/10

Mikhail: Nice song, which makes me wanna whistle. It’s catchy, but still not very memorable and I do not see it winning.

Score: 5/10

Anne Gadegaard 2Ramadan: Could this be the winner of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2015? I think this could just beat Anti Social Media to win the song selection. The melody is fantastic and the song in general is nice to listen to. Also that chorus is so damn catchy! A solid entry from Denmark’s JESC 2003 representative.

Score: 7/10

Robyn: This feels a little bit overshadowed by Gianluca’s “Tomorrow” from 2013, even though “Suitcase” is a better song. It has an especially brilliant melody and a really enjoyable progression. And Anne ain’t no twee hippy performer – check out her heels!

Score: 8/10

Sami: I always love it when there’s a story in the song. It’s definitely an earworm and it might also annoy some, but so was “Cliche Love Song” and it won. However, the only thing I really love is the drums. It really depends on the performance how well this will do, but I think it might end up in the top three.

Score: 6/10

William: I was skeptical that a song called “Suitcase” could contend for the title, but the verses have drive and the chorus is mega-catchy. It’s updated country with a euro-pop vibe and yet somehow feels very DMGP. Love it. The cameo from Conchita (in cardboard form) hints at the potential greatness of this number.

Score: 8/10

One of my favourite songs I’ve seen in all selections so far. Denmark HAS TO send it! I can’t go through another “wanna be loved” robbage session

Likelihood of each Scandinavian country to win this year.

1. Finland (If Satin Circus win UMK.)
2. Sweden (I think if we see Måns Zelmerlöw in Vienna, I think he could do some damage. He has the name right across the Eurovision fan zone and Sweden is known for sending the song, singer and personality and it works well for them.)

3. Norway
4. Denmark (If they make a mistake tomorrow night, I’d be doubtful of Denmark’s chances in Vienna.)

5. Iceland (Iceland is up for question in my opinion.)

It’s good. But I am not sure how it would fair in Vienna if it wins tomorrow night. I think that of all the Scandinavian countries, I think Finland could bag their 2nd Eurovision victory this year and bring the contest BACK to the Hartwall Areena in Helsingfors (Helsinki in Swedish.).
