Danish broadcaster DR has today outlined the rules and regulations for national competition “Dansk Melodi Grand Prix“, used as a selection process for the countries’ entry in the Eurovision Song Contest.
Whilst a date nor location for the event has not been set yet, DR is welcoming submissions for the contest until September 24th. As always, songs must meet all the standard regulations for Eurovision (detailed rules here in Danish). Furthermore, DR is welcoming entries from foreign composers and producers providing they work with other Danish singers or composers.
From submitted entries, an allocated jury for DR will choose six to take part in the competition, whilst another three or four will be invited by DR into the show. Speaking about the competition, DR’s Head of Entertainment, Jan Lagermand Lundme has said “We would like to continue the positive development of the Grand Prix, where the songs are modern; Melodi Grand Prix is not the same as ten years ago.” continuing, Mr. Lundme said “We want hits – which are up to date and are the sounds of 2013.”
