In the Danish final, there has been a high class of Eurovision entertainment. Beside of the 10 participants there were three former ESC winners performing live on stage. Brotherhood of Man from the United Kingdom (winners of 1976 with “Save your Kisses for me”), The Herrey’s from Sweden (winners of 1984 with “Diggi-Loo-Diggi-Ley”) and Johnny Logan from Ireland (winner of 1980 with “What’s another year” and 1987 with “Hold me now” performing their songs in front of an enthused Danish crowd. There have been a lot of former Danish participants in the show like Hot Eyes (Denmark 1983, 1985 and 1988), Anne-Christine Herdorf (Denmark 1987) and some more watching that show in the audience.
The general quality of the show has been enormously high with lots of temporary music which could all be played in the radio and a huge phenomenal stage setting. Unfortunately, there were no ballads or rock songs, just Danish pop songs. So the quality was quite equal, for the juries and tv spectators, so the more difficult was it to find the right song to represent Denmark in Malmö.
After the presentation of the ten songs, there was a super final with the three best songs. These were Simone Egeriis ”Stay Awake”, Emmelie de Forest “Only Teardrops” and
Mohamed with “Unbreakable”. The five jury members have declared Emmelie and Mohammed with 11 points each as the winners, the rest of the points came by televoting, which made the clear winner with a little surprise: it has been Emmelie de Forest with “Only Teardrops”. This has probably been the weakest song of the night. The others would have had more chances internationally. The song “Only Teardrops” has some folkloristic elements with flutes and drums, very 90’s, which has been heard so often at Eurovision.
