Denmark is all geared up to start the search for Leonora’s successor.
On March 7, ten hopefuls compete in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix to win the ticket to carry the Danish flag at Eurovision.
The Danish broadcaster, DR, has played things differently this year. The ten-singer final remains the same, but half of acts have been preselected to go to the final, while the other half went through a wildcard radio competition organized by P4.
Only one act can win the right to represent Denmark at Eurovision 2020. And we want to know who’s your favourite to win. Listen to the ten competing entries below and vote for your favourite. As always, you can vote for as many acts as you like, but you can only vote once — so choose wisely.

Denmark in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020
For the show’s 50th edition, the final show will return to Copenhagen for the first time since 2008. It will be hosted by actress Hella Joof and actor Rasmus Bjerg. Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2020 takes place on March 7 at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen. The show will air live from 7pm on DR.
The 2020 selection also saw the introduction of a preliminary round. Three district-based semi-finals were held with three acts in each semi. The winners of each heat were determined by online public votes from radio listeners, while two wildcards were chosen by an expert panel. The following acts did not progress beyond this stage:
Nick Jones – “2AM”
SamSara – “For You”
Søren Okholm – “Impossible Dreamers”
Mielou – “We Could Be So Beautiful”
