Eurvision 2014 – Danish Plans update and potentially a bigger Dansk Melodi Grand Prix.

The rhyming couplets thing – I never got!

Eurovision Ireland

It is just over 2 weeks since Denmark won the honor of hosting the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest but Danish broadcaster DR have already started discussing how they will host the contest. Jan Lagermand Lundme is head of entertainment for DR since 2008 and is responsible for Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, X Factor and similar content. He has spoken of the first thoughts for the contest in 2014.

Firstly it is expected that the show will use the Malmo edition as a blue print when it comes to creating an intimate show. “The 2001 Eurovision experience taught them a lot. A show with 38,000 (at Parken) spectators was good for 2001 but not for 2014.” When it comes to presenters DR were highly impressed with Petra Mede and  “Therefore there will be no rhyming between the hosts” (like between Søren Pilmark & Natasja Crone in 2001)
