Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2017 — Denmark’s search for an act that can un-do its boy band curse at Eurovision — takes place on Saturday, February 25. And as ever wiwibloggers William and Deban met up for a gossip and a bitch — and to listen to this year’s competing entries while in front of a camera.
As many of you have already pointed out on YouTube, we do not include the actual songs in our video. That’s because the Danish record labels have a well-known habit of blocking your video if it contains even a few seconds of their tracks. So, unfortunately, you’ll have to press play on Spotify or YouTube or the DMGP web site to familiarise yourself with the songs.
Also note: At the time of filming we only had access to the 30-second snippets, as the songs were blocked on Spotify and the official DR web site had not yet uploaded them. These videos take time to edit and, given everyone’s work schedule, we just had to film it when we could.
