Denmark, host country of the 2014 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest is somewhat focusing on the major task at hand, but will nevertheless be responsible for an early dress rehearsal tomorrow evening as they host the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, the national selection which will see to the selection of the Scandinavian country. In recent years, the event has proven to be extremely successful, both in terms of quality of production and entries, noting the fame of acts such as A Friend In London and Emmelie de Forest who finished in fifth and first place in 2011 and 2013, respectively.

Earlier this morning, Danmarks Radio (DR) published the full versions of the competing entries in this years' edition of the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, with ten (10) acts vying to represent the host nation in the 2014 edition of the continental competition taking place in the B&W Hallerne, just outside of Copenhagen. Following the performances of all of the acts, the top three (3) entries will be selected by a panel of professional judges comprising of Jørgen de Mylius, Cutfather, Cheif1, Søs Fenger and Camille Jones as well as tele-voting, both having a 50% share. The super-final will also have the same system. You may follow the LIVE report by Emil Calleja Bayliss on escflashmalta.com, where you may also follow all the latest news about the 2014 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest.

A record number of 872 entries have been submitted for next years' edition of the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, the selection process which will see an act represent Denmark on home soil following the astonishing victory achieved by Emmelie de Forest and her song Only Teardrops. Earlier this year, DR had received 692 submissions, a number which has been considerably dwarfed by around 200 more songs. It continues with the strong tradition of hundreds of submissions in countries within the Scandinavian region as noted by Norway, Finland and Sweden.

In three (3) of the past four (4) years, the nation managed to finish in the top five (5) and gained resounding charting success with their 2011 entry New Tomorrow performed by the group A Friend In London who went onto record with the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen. Rasmus Ladefoged, responsible for the Entertainment Section at DR is excited about the prospect of finding another strong entry to represent the country. 'It is so cool! It’s really amazing! It ‘s a very special year for the Grand Prix this year, because we are going to host the Eurovision Song Contest. I think that has helped create the attention, that has now led to this great contribution'.

Whilst no speculation with regards to songwriters and artists has been noted in any tabloid, Ladefoged stated that there is a good mixture of amateur and professional songs whilst a number of wildcards will also be invited to compete within the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix slated to take place on the 8th March 2014 in Odense.

Emmelie de Forest, a young and talented female vocalist from Denmark swooped to victory at the Eurovision Song Contest with the track Only Teardrops co-written by Lise Cabble, Julia Fabrin Jakobsen and Thomas Stengaard. At the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, she was not one of the initial favourites but nevertheless managed to convince both the public and the jury alike following a stunning performance on the night of the final. DR, the national broadcaster responsible for the participation of Denmark is currently pre-producing next years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest whilst also revealing details about the next national selection process.

Rasmus Ladefoged, entertainment editor for the editor went on record stating that 'the last time Denmark hosted the Eurovision Song Contest', they came in second place with 'Rollo & King', ultimately adding 'If we can do a little better next year, I'll be happy'. Last year, Denmark received an astonishing record amount of submissions for their selection process following the disappointing result achieved by Soluna Samay and her entry Should've Known Better and the tally stood at 692 entries. It is expected that the number will be greater than 700 on this occasion. It is quite funny as ultimately only six (6) songs are selected as the broadcaster invites three (3) to four (4) songwriters to write songs as well.
