DR, the host broadcaster of the Eurovision Song Contest back in 2001 is gearing up for yet another preselection in a couple of weeks time and it seems like they are pulling off all the stops to organize it in the best possible way including calling over a number of international judges. There has been renewed hope of Denmark doing well at the international event following their last two results noting that back in 2010 they finished in fourth place with the song 'In A Moment Like This' performed by Chanee and N'Evergreen and last year managed a fifth position with A Friend in London and their entry 'A New Tomorrow'. They have been touted for another positive result with the right choice and therefore, they have called on music professionals from the last four (4) winning countries of the Eurovision Song Contest.

This system might prove to be successful and when you consider that there will be both input from the public and this respective jury, then one will note how much effort is being put in by the broadcaster to make sure that the right song is chosen to represent Denmark. There are numerous names in the jury which will surely be recognizable by many people actually with former representatives of the Eurovision Song Contest including winners present in the list compiled. You can note the names just below:
