It’s just a couple of weeks ago that a new king was crowned in Denmark, and soon we will find out who will be crowned the winner in Denmark’s biggest music competition. Because the 8 acts and songs competing in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2024 – the Danish selection for Eurovision – were revealed today, Thursday 25 January.

Among the eight finalists are Eurovision alum Basim and successful artist Aura Dione, along with upcoming artists from different spectres of the Danish music scene.

One of these acts will go to Eurovision just on the other side of the Öresund Bridge in Malmö, hoping to emulate the success that Denmark has had the previous times Eurovision was held in Sweden.

They won both in 2000 in Stockholm with the Olsen Brothers and of course again the last time Eurovision visited Malmö in 2013, where Emmelie de Forest took the victory.

Format of DMGP 2024

This year’s Danish final will be held in the DR Koncerthuset in Copenhagen on 17 February.

Three songs will go through to the super final decided by televote.

The winner will then be chosen in the super final, where the televote counts for 50% and the jury vote for 50%. The jury in the super final will consist of 10 fans from Denmark, 5 foreign fans and 5 foreign music professionals.

Hosts of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2024 are Stéphanie Surrugue and Sara Bro.

Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2024 line-up

Aura Dione – “Mirrorball Of Hope”

Composers: Alexander Brown, Aura Dione, Michelle Leonard, Andres Artiles Jerrik

Aura Dione has Faroese, French and Spanish heritage. She grew up on the seven seas, before her family settled on the Danish island Bornholm when she was seven years old. Her debut single came out in 2007, and it didn’t take long for her to establish herself as one of Denmark’s most successful artists, with the single “Geronimo” being her most successful song to date.

Aura’s debut also had a big impact in Germany, where she has topped the charts with “I Will Love You Monday”.

Now the time has come for Aura to make her debut in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix with her self-penned entry “Mirrorball of Hope”. An anthem of never losing hope and faith in the world, even in the difficult times we currently are in:

“I dream of being able to inspire and bring the world together with a song about hope. And to give a voice to those without one: After becoming a mother, I have rediscovered the primal power, and want to
remind people of the power we all possess… stand strong, Like a Mirrorball of Hope.”

Basim – “Johnny”

Composers: Frederik Nordsø, Frej Randrup Lund, Basim Moujahid, Frej Randrup Lund

This year marks ten years since Basim won Dansk Melodi Grand Prix with “Cliche Love
Song”. The earworm, that came ninth at Eurovision 2014, has since become a fan favourite among Eurovision fans. A decade after his victory, Basim is back in DMGP with his entry “Johnny”.

Basim was 15 years old when the public first got to know him as a participant in the first season of X-Factor in 2008, where he made it through to the semi-final. The 31-year-old artist is nowadays one of the most sought-after songwriters in Denmark, and he has written several hits for artists both at home and abroad.

Basim also achieved a number one record on the Japanese album chart, which is one of the world’s biggest music markets.

“I am very grateful to have the opportunity to stand on the big stage again with one that means a lot to me. My chance meeting with Johnny later proved to become more important in my life. It taught me the importance of appreciating them people who mean something to you while they are here. I look forward to sharing my story with all of Denmark.”

CHU CHU – “The Chase (Zoom Zoom)”

Composers: Nina Vejen Henriksen, Emma Lincoln, Merle Pi Madsen, Christopher Engel Snitkjær, Amy Jeyasri Larsen

Camilla Chu Xu Bjørner, with the stage name CHU CHU, grew up in Denmark and China. She is known for her explosive energy and unique musical style, which she brings to the big stage at DMGP 2024.

CHU CHU has a unique, powerful sound, plus a rebellious energy and attitude that, according to herself, will rub off on the audience, give them the strength to take their place and be exactly who they are. With her entry she is ready to deliver a powerful show of force for the festive event of the year:

“Performing “The Chase (Zoom Zoom)” at Dansk Melodi Grand Prix is an honour. The song represents a journey through pain and recovery and I can’t wait to share this emotional experience with you all!”

CHU CHU is known for her unique and innovative approach to art, which she takes with her on the stage for her performance. CHU CHU’s presence at the DMGP thus represents more than just music: It is a celebration of personal strength and endurance.

Janus Wiberg – “I Need Your Love”

Composers: Søren Balsner, Nick Tsang, Janus Wiberg, Símun Dam, Danny Baldursson, Marius Ziska

Janus Wiberg is one of today’s biggest voices from the Faroe Islands and his debut single, “Mitt Vakra Føroya Land” (“My Beautiful Faroe Islands”), has been repeatedly described as an “unofficial national anthem” by several journalists in the Faroe Islands. And now Janus is ready to take the stage at Danish Melodi Grand Prix 2024 with the entry “I Need Your Love”.

The 33-year old Faroese singer was born and raised in Tórshavn. His distinctive rustic, intense vocals went straight into the hearts of people and onto the Faroese radio stations.

He has co-written his entry with songwriter, Carpark North bassist and producer Søren Balsner, as well as songwriter and producer Nick Tsang, who has toured and recorded with big names like Backstreet Boys, Ed Sheeran and Lewis Capaldi.

Janus wants to capture everyone’s hearts with the song, which is about lost love. The song is the first of a series of releases from Janus this year, and with the song the bar is set high.

RoseeLu – “Real Love”

Composers: Anders Bønløkke, Anders SG, Rosa Frydensbjerg, Jakob Groth Bastiansen, Joachim Ersgaard, Stine Bramsen

Behind the stage name RoseeLu is singer and songwriter Rosa Frydensbjerg. She has established herself as a distinctive personality on the Danish music scene with her extraordinary vocals and songwriting. RoseeLu had her breakthrough with the single “Playing Alone” in 2021.

RoseeLu will soon take a new step in her career, when she will present her new sound for Dansk Melodi Grand Prix with the song “Real Love”. She wrote the song in collaboration with the Alphabeat members Anders S.G. and Anders Bønløkke and produced by Jakob Groth Bastiansen and Joachim Ersgaard.

With her sensitive lyrics, RoseeLu wants to create a common point of view that many would recognise when it comes to love, posing the eternal question: Is it just a fling or is it true love?

Saba – “Sand”

Composers: Melanie Wehbe, Jonas Thander, Pil Kalinka Jeppesen

Saba Lykke Oehlenschlæger goes by the stage name SABA. Last year, she had the lead role in the musical HAIR, replacing her twin sister who got pregnant. Now she enters Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, where she is looking forward to really making a mark as an artist and singer. She wants to inspire people with her entry to seize life and follow their dreams – exactly as they are.

SABA will perform the song “Sand”, that was written by some familiar names in the song-writing team: Melanie Wehbe (winning with The Mamas – “Move” in Melfest 2020), Jonas Thander (competing as a songwriter in Eurovision 2016, 2019 and 2021) and Danish pop artist Pil Jeppesen.

SABA was adopted from Ethiopia to the small town of Ringkøbing in Jutland when she was just eight months with her twin sister Andrea. As an adult, SABA began to dream of something more and moved to Copenhagen, where she founded her own company as an entrepreneur.

SABA’s goal was clear: To create her own path where there is room to be different. Therefore, she created an online agency, founded a successful business and started a modelling career.

“My goal by participating in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix is to establish myself more as my own, as you are often perceived as a unit when you have an identical twin sister. I want to show off my skills and value as an artist and singer.”

Stella – “Sign Here”

Composers: Tim Schou, Sophie Darum, Søren V. Christensen

Stella grew up in Assens on Funen with a dream of making music. Therefore, she has thrown a lot of energy into finding her own raw and direct expression as a songwriter and singer. Stella’s talent is sparkling clear throughout, and has quickly translated into her own songs and collaborations with some of the industry’s most talented producers and songwriters.

Now she is ready to enter the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2024 with the song “Sign Here”, which she co-wrote with former Eurovision participant Tim Schou (from A Friend In London) and Søren V. Christensen — the same team that were behind last year’s DMGP entry “Lige her” from Søren Torpegaard Lund.

Through all this, Stella has worked to be a shy advocate for introverted people, who don’t hold back to reach for their dreams: “Sign Here is about my journey from safety in Assens to adulthood in Copenhagen, and all the choices that have to be made. I think a lot of us can relate to the big upheaval in life that comes with standing on one’s own two feet”.

Stella believes that her song will make a difference, and she wants to prove it by performing on one of the biggest stages in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2024.

UBLU – “Planetary Hearts”

Composers: Marie Rørbæk, Martina Nielsen, Adam Spanggaard Saarup, Andreas Darger, Frej Fogh Darger, Emil Emborg

UBLU is the sound of a latex whip hitting the dance floor. The sound of a disco ball filled with cracks. The sound of a rebellion against everyone who says you don’t belong. And most importantly: the sound of a group that will perform at Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2024.

UBLU has roots in the world of rock music, where they combine angular guitar riffs and pounding bass passages with the pulse of club music. UBLU loves pop’s grip on the catchy chorus where no emotion is too great. That’s why they made the entry “Planetary Hearts”, which is impactful, danceable and catchy:

“Planetary Hearts is about feeling a longing for something, that you don’t necessarily know what is – so the only thing to do is to leap into the galaxy. About letting go the old and step into the new, even if it feels dangerous.”

UBLU are doing something they have long been dreaming of – to enter Dansk Melodi Grand Prix. It just took courage, the kind of courage that “Planetary Hearts” is about.

hope she can sell it well live

It’s a decent batch, the entries are very middle-of-the-road overall, but well produced and a couple of entries actually stood out for me (Saba and Chu Chu).
Denmark leaves a lot to be desired as usual. They have a great rap scene, acts like Lukas Graham or Mø and good EDM producers, yet none of that ever makes it to DMGP.

International fans always say we play safe, but they want us to send Saba. I do like Saba and I think it would be a great eurovision entry, but is it not just another safe entry? That is why I like Chu Chu. A little bit risky and you would not expect it from Denmark. So I will probably vote for Chu Chu. If the live is bad, then it will be Saba tho 😉

Because of Kaarjas’ entry last year, this year, the national finals are full of weird songs, most of which are not either different / unique, or well worked (prepared, staged, performed, etc.). Playing safe did not favour any country in Eurovision ever. The song must be good, staging and performance must be good, vocals must be flawless, there must be a story or a hook or both. I am afraid this year’s DK songs are nothing of the above. I’m so sorry as a Danophile, but only Saba/ Sand stands a chance of just qualifying. I am so sorry for… Read more »

I really think international fans are overreacting insanely. Yes, the level is not at the level of UMK or melodifestivalen, but DR has shown that they would like to try. You don’t create a winner overnight. DMGP needs to be rebuilt and this year they have taken a step in the right direction. I’m not saying it’s fantastic, and I agree that many of the songs are similar, but it’s a good step in the right direction for the upcoming years. And then I just still think it’s funny to hear when international fans say that Denmark always plays safe,… Read more »

I mean, it’s Denmark so overall nicely middle-of-the-road and pretty safe, but I do hear a bit more variety than in recent years. Also most of these are well-produced and I hear some strong voices. Denmark has options. Chu Chu would be the most refreshing choice (I can imagine this being really cool on stage). Saba has a good voice and a pretty strong song which at least builds a bit differently. I must say I enjoy Janus Wiberg as well; it’s safe but his voice is great and that bridge and last chorus are actually impressive. I feel sad… Read more »

At least Saba’s Sand saves the day. The only song with a decent chance of qualifying for the final if performed well.

Unfortunately, the Danes have no other option than Saba. It’s a good song actually. Dynamic and has something to say!

Most songs are generic, bland, or indifferent.Good luck Denmark!

Oh Denmark, what have you done? I feel the last couple of years you have had some interesting entries but this is all over the place. There are the expected swathes of banality but the ones that may be regarded as different are really wide of the mark. Planetary Hearts is so confusing Johnny has the most depressing of material set against a happy-clappy pop tune. And I am asked to consider that something is “like” a mirrorball of hope – which is quite hard to conceptualise when I have no idea what a “mirrorball of hope” is to start… Read more »

I think it’s probably because Denmark votes for these kind of mellow happy pop tunes and he wants to win again. I agree, I find the topic and the music paired together are a bit of a mismatch, although the lyrics with the flowers raise a good point. The composition is still weak though imo.

Indifference is what I feel after listening to all. Denmark could easily stay in the semi again with any of those. For me, the downfall started right after Emmelie with Basim (so no need to repeat that one) and was only paused with „Yes“, unfortunately in the canceled year. I believe this would’ve been a televote magnet. „Only Teardrops“, indeed. Sounding better with every new edition of DMGP.

I’ve always said that I find odds to be BS, and this year, even more so because we’ve seen countries rise up and down for the wrong reasons.

Interesting that after a few years of having an influx of Danish language songs that all entries are in English. I don’t think there’s anything that is immediately a standout. There’s clearly some variety here and as a whole feels stronger than recent years. But largely nothing feels like sure qualifiers just all decent passable entries. I was a big aura back in the day but the song didn’t grab me from the onset—have to listen a few times—is she still a big deal in Denmark?

Frankly, Denmark should withdraw from Eurovision 2024 to set a statement that Malmø is their own (occupied) city hehe
