HERE ARE THE EUROVISION 2014 HOSTS
COPENHAGEN, DENMARK – Danish national broadcaster announced three hosts for Eurovision Song Contest 2014. DR wanted to do something new although having three hosts is something we saw in 1999, 2010, 2011, 2012 Eurovision editions.
The three hosts are two male and one female presenters: Nikolaj Koppel, Pilou Asbæk & Lise Rønne.
Nikolaj Koppel says: “You can’t really compare being the host of the Eurovision Song Contest with much else. It is a task in a league of its own. I will do my utmost to reach out to every corner of Europe and the world, so everyone can enjoy and feel welcome at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest.”
Lise Rønne continues: “This is something of a dream job for me – I am both excited and a little daunted by the task ahead, but I can’t wait to get started. I see my role as trying to create a sense of calm and closeness in the middle of a giant show. When all that is said, I am looking forward to welcoming everyone to the party!”
Pilou Asbæk will have his debut as a TV-host for the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest. Although he is a new TV-host, he comes to the job with great experience as an actor – including as the star of DR’s political drama series, Borgen, which has been shown in more than 70 countries worldwide.
Pilou Asbæk comments: “When I was offered the job as host, I didn’t have any doubts whatsoever. I just had to do this. When I think about what lies ahead, I must admit that I am a little nervous – but I will do everything in my power to become a great host for the Eurovision Song Contest. I am sure that this will be a fantastic experience – and a party that everyone is invited to join!” (source: eurovision.tv)
