This morning, Denmark finally joined their Nordic neighbours in revealing some news about who was going to be fighting it out for the honour of representing them at Eurovision, and with which songs.
There’s no point in us going into all of the details, as they’ve already been presented in a full, comprehensive, clear, and precise manner at the official Eurovision website here. So have a browse.
One thing worth pointing out though, actually it’s worth more than just pointing out, it’s worth screaming from the rooftops, is the participation of Ms Jenny Berggren, formerly of Ace of Base. She’s surprised just about everyone with the announcement that she’ll be competing in Denmark with the song ‘Let Your Heart Be Mine’. What’s more, it’s been composed by not just the absolute schlager legend, Thomas G:Son, but also Jeppe Federspiel. Jeppe has been behind Denmark’s two biggest success stories of the last couple of years, Medina and Rasmus Seebach. We’re expecting HUGE things from this song. No pressure, Jenny darling!
As luck would have it, we heard this news just before we boarded our flight to Luleå this morning, to attend Melodifestivalen prep for the next few days. And who else was boarding the same flight?…………..Why, Mr Thomas G:Son! So we asked him about the song. He said it’s a very up-tempo number. A real dance song.
Oh yes Jenny, oh yes!
