Denmark 2016: DMGP viewers to vote via SMS and App
On February 13th Denmark will select its representative for Stockholm and 10 songs are ready for the final in Horsens. Today, DR announced the voting details for the show. This year, there will be no points in the voting and the viewers will be able to vote by SMS and a new app.
Danish viewers will be able to vote in the app “DR Grand Prix” for free. The app is made both for the adult competition and the children’s competition MGP that will be held on the stage stage a week after Melodi Grand Prix.
Head of Entertainment at DR, Jan Lagermand Lundme, says that the app will make it easier for everyone to vote and this way the best song that most people like will go to Stockholm.
Last year DR released a similar app for X Factor Denmark and this made many more viewers vote during the shows and if the app should collapse, DR has a solution to finish the voting.
During Melodi Grand Prix 2016 the 10 songs will be performed and 3 songs will be selected to a “Super Final” with votes from the viewers and the jury. In the Super Final the three songs will be performed again and only the viewers will select the winner of Melodi Grand Prix 2016, all without points.
