In just a few hours Denmark will select its Eurovision 2016 act. Ten hopefuls will take to the stage during tonight’s Dansk Melodi Grand Prix but only one will make it to Stockholm. We’ve been asking y’all to vote for your favourites since 11 January, and now, after counting 1,502 votes, we can reveal your winner.

With a grand total of  490 votes or 32.62% of all votes cast, Simone and “Heart Shaped Hole” topped the poll. The singer has come close to representing her country twice before, could it be third time lucky?

Voice of Australia winner Anja Nissen occupies second spot with the Emmelie de Forrest penned “Never Alone”. Despite some controversy surrounding the song, she polled an impressive 350 votes or 23.3% of all votes cast.

Faroe Islands native Kristel Lisberg comes a distant third with “Who Needs A Heart”. Whatever about a heart, she’ll definitely need a boost if she’s to catchup with our leading ladies, at least if our readers are to be trusted. She received 158 votes or 10.52% of all votes cast.

Muri & Mario land at fourth with “To Stjerner”. If this is replicated in real life, they’ll just miss out on a place in the super-final. However, with 117 votes or 7.79% they’re considerably ahead of the remaining six acts. None of the other contenders managed to break the 100 vote mark.

Simone winning would send this selection weekend even further down the toilet for me

I really want Simone to win as it would be my number one straight away (a first for Denmark) but after seeing the preview of the staging, the chances of winning have been reduced significantly. I think it’s going to be Anja and I think Anja would be a surprise non qualifier in Stockholm although Anja is my second favortie. Denmark make the right choice!

I think overall Simone is better than Anja, but both could get Denmark to the finals

This is part of what I wrote on another site :- To me it’s not a “names” game and who wrote the song and who sings it is not really important, it is about how the song and artist sound. Recently the trend has been to move away from the “screaming female” and Anja is an example of just that, just listen to the last 30 seconds. The song is just the typical Scandipop from the factory I’m not keen on at all, and those drums, so dated, nothing original here at all. Kristel’s song is like an Irish selection… Read more »

DenizNL, I will tell you, Douwe Bob, Serhat, Barei, and Iveta Mukuchyan are in the words of Tony Blair to John Major, WEAK, WEAK, WEAK!

I love Kristel’s song the most but don’t think she’ll be #1 in Denmark. I think Simone will win it but it isn’t a winner song unfortunately.

Simone or Anja and I have a new no 1. Anyone else would be a disgrace!

We don’t even know what Douwe, Evita and Serhat will sing. How in the world would you know that they can’t win?

It would be an upset. Anja Nissen or Bracelet will win. If it’s Simone, Denmark won’t be in the finals this year. They will join Netherlands, Armenia, San Marino, and Spain as the countries who will never win!
