The latest winner of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix is Reiley, who is originally from the Faroe Islands. He brought “Breaking My Heart” to the Eurovision 2023 stage in Liverpool, but sadly didn’t manage to qualify to the final, finishing in 14th place.

The last time Denmark qualified for the final was in 2019, when Leonora achieved a left-side finish in 12th place with 120 points. Will 2024 be the year we see Denmark back in the Eurovision final?
