Thanks to a technological hiccup, we found out the ten hopefuls who want to represent Denmark at Eurovision 2016 on Sunday. The mix-up saw the entire Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2016 album published on Spotify almost three weeks early — Scandinavian efficiency just can’t be beaten!
This year’s selection spans a variety of genres and boasts some interesting names. The early attention has focused on 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. Now she wants to represent the land of her parents with “Never Alone”. DMGP veteran Simone has also piqued our interest. She’s returning with “Heart Shaped Hole” after a two year absence. She reached the superfinal in 2010 and 2013. Could 2016 finally be her year?
