Denmark calls for songs for Melodi Grand Prix 2011

Less than a week after the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 concluded, Danish broadcaster DR has started preparing the 2011 edition of their national selection Melodi Grand Prix. Just like this year, the local competition will feature one show only, to take place in February 2011.

No major changes apply to the 2011 running of the Danish MGP. Singers interested in taking part can submit their entries until September 27th. Out of all the submissions, six songs will be chosen by a secret committee. Another four artists will be invited by broadcaster DR as wildcards.

Participants must have Danish citizenship or have "corresponding, strong relationships with Denmark", i.e. having resided for a "considerable" number of years in Denmark, etc. As for the language of the entries, DR allows, in colsultation with them, compositions in any language in both the Melodi Grand Prix and the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest.

The only show to feature Melodi Grand Prix will be held in February 2011, when the 10 acts will compete for the right to represent Denmark at the Eurovision Song Contest.

This year, Denmark was represented by Chanée & N'Evergreen in Oslo with the song In a moment like this, ending up in 4th place in the final.

It seems that you have big interest in these genres. The biggest Danish rockfestival will be held soon. Take a look here too:

There are many decent rockbands here in Denmark. I like Nephew, but my favorite will be Kashmir if Denmark ever will send a rockband for ESC. But it will never happen as the ESC election is chosen by the majority.
Lets fingers crossed :D

To mention some: Rumors said fire, Carpark North, Kashmir and many other alternative bands.

Bennyfried
Glad to hear that. As I told you before I like your taste of music :D

I agree, but I don't like the super final at all. It's just another way to earn money on people having to vote twice in the final. So is the second chance round and duels. I hate the duels, but I can live with the second chance round. I just think they could have sent top 3 or 4 straight away to the final instead of having to go through a second chance round first for that OR get 1-2 jury wildcards.

For Denmark I'd love to see The Raveonettes, Mew or The Storm.

I dont really know what happened to Unite. I guess they were as a group until last year, then they flopped somehow :D

But we still have Outlandish here. And they are just great :D

In Athens ESC Annet Artani from Cyprus had the biggest applause in Arena after Anna Vissi, but Annet Artani's song wasn't appreciated very much outside Arena, I guess! :D

Roselil
Yes, medina will be the best choice, but that won't happen! So I wanna Trine Jepsen to participate again in her hot pants like last year! :D :D :D
And does band Unite from Dansk MGP 2008 still exist?

I don't know why I'm with Denmark. Generally I support different teams in each World Cup. The funny thing is that the teams I support do well. I was with France in 1998 (champions), South Korea 2002 (4th place), Germany 2006 (3rd place) and now Denmark... Let's see how they do!

Wow, they are lucky to have you as their supporter then. You are like a lucky charm ;) I remember Euro 1992 in Sweden, when Denmark wasn't even supposed to participate but took Yugoslavia's place when they had to withdraw because of the war.. and Denmark won!!! :D Gosh! I was so happy for them (I almost cried). This song is a legendary song from that time (I absolutely love this song and I never get tired of it (L) ).

VI ER RØDE, VI ER HVIDE. VI STÅR SAMMEN, SIDE OM SIDE :D

I love our Norwegian football songs too: "Alt for Norge" and "Bønda i fra nord" :D

I know that norwegian and danish people have some history hehe. But be sure I would support Norway if you participated in the World Cup this year!

And coming back to ESC, Denmark please send Nephew in 2011!!!

I agree as regards England, but I think they'll go far this year. I believe they'll be in the final versus Argentina. But anything can happen in football.

And yes, I can't wait for the World Cup to begin! I'm with Greece and Denmark this year!

Why Denmark? I'm not..hehe. Well, I have to see how they play. Their coach have always been so mean to Norwegian team..grr...so thats a touchy spot.
I cheer for England. They have been so unlucky most championships...I really hope they go far this year. I usually cheer for Italy too (because my sisters x boyfriend is from Italy, so we have always been wearing Italian shirts and cheered for them....but they are not together anymore, so) hehe...

I hope for something new too, something a little less poppy. I wish Danish MGP also had semi finals = more songs, but no second chance round or duels like we do.

I can't believe we adopted the duells they have in Sweden. It's so unfair. I think it's okay with a second chance and the two most voted for goes to the final. Duells is totally rubbish and unfair! IT all depends on who's their opponent are in the "draw", and thats not fair.I kind of like the second chances, cause Björn Johan showed that it is possible to score high even though you weren't voted straight to the final. And one more thing I hate about MGP Norway is that they ruin the excitement by revealing the score from the lowest to the highest from the jury and the televoters in the super final (no excitement at all for the artists and us then).. They should just reveal the points in random order. Agree?
