Ten acts gave their all tonight in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix to represent Denmark in Tel Aviv. Sigmund brought the sass and attitude with “Say My Name”. Julie & Nina were almost in a league of their own with “League of Light”.
But a nail-biting superfinal saw Leonora and her entry “Love Is Forever” making its way to Israel.
Leonora — “Love Is Forever”
“Love Is Forever” saw sweetness and jauntiness personified on stage. Leonora, dressed in a white shirt and suspenders with her fiery red hair pulled back, brought an essence of French chanteuse to the stage. The camera stayed almost static on her stunning face – focusing on her beautiful feminine features, before panning out to two backing dancers who joined her on stage for some clever leg choreography.
