According the news from DR the Danes Jesper and Lauritz, together as Fyr og Flamme have topped the Danish charts. This has not happened since nine years anymore, when Emmelie de Forest went number one in Denmark immediately after winning the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix. Is this a good sign?
In the international bets the Danish song “Øve os på hinanden”, can be found on the lower ranks and a win is seems to be unrealistic. Furthermore the song is even sung in Danish, and the aim is to do this in Rotterdam as well. Even if a song is in its native language it can be a winner internationally like Serbia with “Molitva” by Marija Šerifović in 2007 or Portugal with “Amar Pelos Dois” by Salvador Sobral in 2017.
Definitely, it’s a good sign if the country stand behind its song and there are always surprises. It’s all a matter how the song will be presented and if the international audience can be impressed.

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
