Denmark is taking part in the second semi-final of the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest on the 14th of May, but Danish viewers do not have to follow the first semi-final on a foreign channel this year as DR also will be broadcasting this one live.
DR’s preview shows are as usual broadcasted late evening. They will be aired on DR1 on Sunday the 10th and Monday the 11th close to midnight both days. A special program following Brinck from winning the Danish final to promotion, video production of Believe Again and leaving for Moscow where he will be defending the red and white Danish colours will be shown on the same channel Saturday the 9th of May at 19:30 CET.
Already before this year’s Dansk Melodi Grand Prix DR said out loud that they were going for a victory this year; that a second place wouldn’t be good enough and the program following Brinck to Moscow has appropriately been titled "Let the music win".
