Denmark’s long-running national final – Dansk Melodi Grand Prix – is set to return on Saturday 5 March. The show will see eight acts battle it out to gain access to the Eurovision 2022 stage in Turin. This is the same number of competing acts as the last two years, and two down from the ten competing acts that the contest used from 2000 to 2019.

You can now mark your calendars for Thursday 10 February. That’s when the Danish competing songs and artists will be released. Ja tak!

Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2022: Songs release set for February 10, 2022

It’s a date! Denmark’s Broadcaster – DR – has confirmed that artists and their competing songs will all come out next February 10. Coincidence or not, that’s the same date as last year. However, it may not follow the same process. DR hasn’t said whether fans will hear the tracks on Danish radio first as they did last year.

Also for the second year running, both Tina Müller and Martin Brygmann are back as next year’s DMGP hosts. Tina is best known in Denmark as a sports journalist and presenter. Martin is an actor, presenter and musician. In 2005, Brygmann co-wrote Sweethearts’ DMGP entry “I Must Be Crazy”. He previously appeared at DMGP as a member of the professional jury.

There’s more. For the first time in three years, the audience will be back in the arena. Following advice from the Danish government, broadcaster DR did away with the audience in the last two editions to avoid a coronavirus outbreak. Host Tina is thrilled: “This is an evening where we, together, have a chance to throw a real party, and give colours and musical joy to each other.

She continued: “I’m excited. The Danish Melody Grand Prix is a huge people’s festival and after two years without audiences, I am most looking forward to giving the eight songs and artists the support and celebration they deserve.”

DMGP 2022

Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2022 is set to take place next March 5 in Herning’s Jyske Bank Boxen. That’s the same arena where Emmelie de Forest won DMGP 2013, before winning Eurovision 2013 in Malmö. The same arena also hosted DMGP 2009, 2017 and 2019, whose winnings acts brought Denmark to the Final. Perhaps that’s a good sign for 2022.

Last year’s Danish representatives – Fyr og Flamme – will open the show. The charismatic and fun duo finished an unlucky eleventh and just missed out on qualification in Rotterdam in 2021. In fact, Denmark pulled the biggest rank difference of their semifinal. Fyr Og Flamme were seventh in the televote, but the jury ranked them eight places lower.

Tickets to attend the show are already on sale on DR’s website.

The final of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2022 airs on Saturday 5 March at 8 PM CET on DRTV and DR1.

DMGP has become one of my favourite national selections. I loved 2021 and I look forward to 2022. Not too long now!

Hopefully they don’t make the same mistake of having a weak lineup in DMGP 2022. I want Volbeat and Oh My Girl to try their luck in DMGP 2022 because they’re special.

Denmark, you have one job for the 2022 season. Do not present us with another disappointing selection of weak songs please.

hopefully there are some quality entries this time around because last DMGP edition was by far the weakest of the national selection season, the majority of the songs were unlistenable

I hope they for once find 8 really strong songs that can bring Denmark back to the powerhouse status pre 2013 rather than 8 songs they scraped out from the left-over bin,,

i really really hope that dr will announce a strong roster like the one in 2020 and not the half-baked one that made us a laughing stock during the 2021 nf season
