Popular Danish final trio that got reduced to a duo shortly after their second attempt to represent Denmark at the Eurovision Song Contest is currently half way through their selection of a new member. 10 girls are left in the competition where the public will now be voting – one of the hopeful ones is daughter of a former Eurovision participant.
The selection started on the internet where people could sign up for an audition. 100 girls were chosen and with 50 each day they presented themselves to the two Sukkerchok singers Malene and Kat and their manager on Tuesday the 17th and Wednesday the 18th of August. The auditions was a part of the morning programme on TV2 that is broadcasted from Tivoli, Copenhagen and each of the 100 girls were asked to present themselves, to dance and to sing one of three Sukkerchok songs. They had in advance been told that they could choose between Hvor Som Helst – Når Som Helst, Besat and Det Det´. The latter being their 2009 Dansk Melodi Grand Prix entry that finished third.
After seeing and hearing all 100 girls the duo and their manager selected 10 they will like to go through to next stage. Those girls were presented in the same morning programme today. Malene and Kat both said that they were feeling less sure to be able to find a suitable girl after the first day of auditions, but the second day made them more confident. They are looking for a girl who has the whole package; a good look, performer gen and of course a fantastic voice. The voice alone will not be enough and during the rehearsals several blonde girls have been told that they would prefer a non blonde. Malene and Kat are both blondes whereas the girl who left the trio was brown haired.
Most of the girls have singing and performing experience and one of them can even brag about being the daughter of a former Eurovision Song Contest participant; Debbie Cameron who represented Denmark in 1981 together with Tommy Seebach.
It is now up to the public to cut those ten girls down to five possible new Sukkerchok members. A semi-final will be held on Wednesday the 25th where these five girls will have to do a live performance. Based on that the public cuts down the five to three girls for the final on September 3rd where Malene, Kat and their manager will decide who they will be recording and touring with and who knows maybe represent Denmark together with in Germany next year.
