COPENHAGEN, DENMARK – Today the first rehearsals started in Forum Horsens, where Melodi Grand Prix 2016 will be held on Saturday. This means that we also got to see the stage for the first time. The stage is very different from last year where the stage was round and in the middle of the arena. This year the stage gets us down the memory lane, back to Jerusalem 1999. The logo of Melodi Grand Prix makes the background of the stage together with LED screens.
Today the three hosts Jacob Riising, Annette Heick and Hilda Heick had their first rehearsal on stage. They promise an amazing show with lots of glitter. Tomorrow the 10 artists will rehearse on the stage for the first time to get ready for the show on Saturday.
DR has also announced the first four members of the jury. The members are radio host Dennis Johannesson, songwriter John Gordon (Germany 2010), choreographer Vicky Leander and singer Christina Chanée (Denmark 2010). A fifth member of the jury will be announced shortly. The jury will decide half the voting on Saturday in the first round. In the super final only the viewers will decide the winner.
The winner of Melodi Grand Prix 2016 will represent Denmark in the second semifinal at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 in Stockholm on May 12th. Last year Anti Social Media failed to qualify for the Grand Final in Vienna.
