Denmark: DR to reveal the 10 solo artists this Thursday

The ten solo participants in DMGP 2017 are to be revealed this Thursday the 19th of January, with Denmark selecting their Eurovision entrant on February the 25th. A record of 1,115 songs were submitted to compete in this years Danish selection, even though they missed out on the final in 2015 and 2016.

The reveal of the participants will take place at 13:00 CET, with the press conference being streamed online on the DR website. The Danes really want to reach the final of the Eurovision Song Contest again, because as a result of the bad results the viewing figures for the contest have fallen significantly.

This year marks the 60th edition of the Danish selection process for the Eurovision Song Contest and is being held in Herning. Jan Lagermand Lundme the Head of Entertainment at DR has high expectations for the 10 songs competing in this years selection saying: “I am grateful that the ten soloists are so good, because without them you could dream enough so many dreams about qualifying. But with the ten, we can not do better.”
