It has been nearly two decades, since Dansk Melodi Grand Prix was last held in Denmark’s capital, but now it is finally Copenhagen’s turn again.

Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2020 will take place on 7 March 2020 in the new venue Royal Arena which is located in the Ørestad district.

Royal Arena opened in 2017 and has room for 17,000 guests – making it one of the largest venues ever to host Dansk Melodi Grand Prix.

The planning of next year’s Dansk Melodi Grand Prix is already under way, but national broadcaster DR is keeping its cards close to the chest and won’t reveal any details just yet. However, it will be the 50th edition of the show, so hopefully DR has something big planned.

Last time Copenhagen was the host city was back in 2002 when Malene Mortensen won with “Tell Me Who You Are” – which incidentially gave Denmark its, so far, one and only last place at Eurovision.

Mayor of Copenhagen, Frank Jensen, is thrilled that Dansk Melodi Grand Prix is returning to Copenhagen.

“Dansk Melodi Grand Prix is a special part of our cultural heritage which year after year is able to gather the Danish people across generations and regions”, Frank Jensen says.

Tickets are available here.

Leonora skates off into the sunset after 12th place in the Grand Final

Some Eurovision stars take time out after the contest but Leonora is dialling it up to sixth gear.

The “Love is Forever” hitmaker is set to spend time at an intensive ice skating seminar in Finland. The camp is called the “Olympic Development Project” and lasts five to six days.

Once she’s hit the ice, then there will be time to rest.

Denmark really needs to step their game up! Since their 2013 win they haven’t made any effort to come close to another win! Only bland safe entries. If they keep it up they will become the new Ireland!

I don’t get the hate she’s receiving before and during the contest. There are lots of good songs this year (even those that got NQ) but she is not an exception from all of them.

I’m very pleased for Leonora being one of this year’s big surprises, I have to admit I was not a fan of “Love is Forever” until May arrived when I played all of this year’s songs to my Mother where she said Denmark was her favorite(2nd year in a row after she favoured Rasmussen last year) then it suddenly clicked with me and I began loving the song! a sweet, charming, harmless tune that is still getting too much hate in the eurofandom but despite all the nastiness thrown at Leonora she still qualified(which was hardly a surprised) and finished… Read more »

To deserve something implies there was a power in charge to give something away, such as a reward. Are you that power?
