Has the Eurovision Song Contest become too big and are the Eastern countries stealing the spotlight? That was up for discussion when Danish commentator Ole Tøpholm met with his former colleague veteran Jørgen De Mylius and former multiple songwriter participant Keld Heick.
Keld and Hilda Heick have decided that, at the age of 65, it is time to enjoy the life as a pensioner. Yesterday they releases the album, which is going to be the last one in a careerspand of many decades. The album, that is self financed, is looking back on that long career.
The list of famous people expressing their sorrow in relation to the death of Anders Frandsen, only 51 years old, is getting quite long. Some describe him as being lonely, others as a happy person who loved sun and golfing and was popular among the females, but they are all in shock.
The Danish TV viewers decided to give a ticket for Germany to A Friend I London. They will be representing Denmark at the Eurovision Song Contest trying to bring home the trophy to the red and white coloured Nordic country. That was decided in tonight’s national final that also served a tribute to triple Eurovision participant Tommy Seebach.
Today, a new album by Anne Herdorf, who represented Denmark in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1987, was released. It is an album with cover versions of Danish Eurovision entries, national final songs and of course a new version of her own entry. Two foreign songs found its way to the album in a Danish version.
Mr. Grand Prix Keld Heick has released a solo album with cover versions of rather unknown Rock’n’roll songs from the 1950’s and ‘60’s. For his fans this is very different from the schlager style they are use to, but for Keld it is going back to his roots where he started 50 years ago.
Keld Heick, who has written several Danish Eurovision Song Contest entries, is openly attacking DR for having blacklisted Schlager music. The attack falls together with the Danish Schlager music, the socalled Dansktop, celebrating its 40 years anniversary.
It looks like 2009 won't be Annette Heick’s third attempt to represent Denmark at the Eurovision Song Contest as she is pregnant and expecting to give birth in February, something that could easily collide with a Danish final.
A theatre concert about Four Jacks, a
Danish version of Mills Bothers, will premiere today. Among the four
members are two times Danish finalist Stig Rossen and Mr. Dansk
Melodi Grand Prix, Keld Heick.
