Melodi Grand Prix: Denmark to select 2018 entry in February in Aalborg

The 2018 Danish national final will take place on the 10th of February in the North Jutlandic city of Aalborg. Hosts of the show will once again be Annette Heick and Johannes Nymark. A big fire recently left doubt about the arena, but it will be ready in time.

Aalborg was favourite to host next year’s Danish final, Melodi Grand Prix, but a big fire in the beginning of July threatened to destroy that. However it turned out the damages to the arena aren’t bigger that they can be re-build and ready in time for the Danish final 2018.

The 2018 Danish final will take place on the 10th of February in Gigantium, Aalborg. Hosts of the show will, just like here in 2017, be Annette Heick and Johannes Nymark. It is Annette’s third year in a row as host. Johannes was part of the trio Lighthouse X which represented Denmark at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest. Their entry Soldiers of Love unfortunately failed to make it to the final.

2018 will be Aalborg’s 7th time as host city for the Danish national selection.

In July the Danish broadcaster, DR, announced some changes to their selection, but the main format remains the same with 10 songs competing to represent the country at the Eurovision Song Contest. This year, Anja had the honour to do so with the song Where I Am which you can enjoy in the video below – this time in a special Multi Cam edition:
