This morning the D in Denmark seems to stand for DRAMA! Last night Anti Social Media won this year’s Dansk Melodi Grand Prix national final with their entry “The Way You Are”. The result didn’t go down well with fan favourite and runner-up Anne Gadegaard. She’s fuming, y’all.
Tipped by our readers to win according in our poll, she has told Danish tabloid Ekstra Bladet that “The jury stinks to hell”. That’s because she finished second with the jury despite winning the televoting portion. Here’s how she feels about falling just six points shy of the winners.
“It is what it is. I’ve got a second place – and I shall be happy. It’s really nice. But it is confusing that Denmark voted for me. If Denmark had voted for them, and the jury had voted for me, it would be easier to accept.”
Well did the best song win?
“I cannot say. If I should go for the Danes, I am better. But again, I think it’s hard to say. I have gotten to know the boys from Anti Social Media and I think they are super cute. I feel really good with them. So I wish them well.”

What do you think? Should Denmark have sent Anne Gadegaard to Vienna instead?
