The final of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2023 will be held on February 11.
Gustav Lützhøft, senior editor at DR Kultur, Debat og Musik commented:
Dansk Melodi Grand Prix is a proud tradition and a musical folk festival that brings us together across generations and tastes. Therefore, again this year, the ambition is to create a show that brings Danes together at home in their living rooms, and that celebrates music and the art of songwriting
Carsten Rasmussen, Mayor of Næstved added:
We are happy that DR has chosen Næstved as Grand Prix City 2023. If we have to say so ourselves, it is quite obvious, because Næstved is a city with lots of music culture. We have even hatched two Grand Prix winners: From Næstved Musikskole singer and actress Flora Ofelia, who won the children’s Melodi Grand Prix in 2015, and from Næstved Ungdomsskole drummer Ihan Haydar, who won the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix in 2012 and also competed in 2022.
A total of eight songs will be selected to compete in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2023 from public submissions and submissions from the Danish music industry. The submission window for the 2023 edition of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix has opened and will remain open until October 28 at 12:00 CET.
Reddi represented Denmark at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 with “The Show”. They finished 13th in Semi-Final One with a total of 55 points. Its highest points came in the form of 6 points from the Icelandic jury and Latvian televote.
