Danish broadcaster DR were supposed to reveal the the ten Dansk Melodi Grand Prix finalists and their songs in just under three weeks’ time, on January 28.

Currently, only users in the Nordics can access them via the streaming service. Thankfully, they’re kind souls and they’ve shared all the details with the rest of us.

The stand out name has to be Anja Nissen. She won the third series of The Voice of Australia, and famously passed over “My Girls” — the Delta Goodrem penned song which was ultimately sung by Australia’s Bella Paige at Junior Eurovision 2015. She’s already won over the Aussies, but can she win over the birthplace of her parents? She’s certainly arriving with a bang.
