There's some real clangers in here, Step It Up and Love Is Forever were particularly horrendous. My choice would be League Of Light after one listen, it's got a One More Time does Emma's Circle Of Light feel to it. That Vibe isn't too bad a back up choice, the rest are all bland or terrible.

My initial favourites are Anywhere, which sounds like a solid Clean Bandit album track, and League Of Light, which feels like a bit of a sonic successor to Higher Ground.

I like Love Is Forever is too! It reminds me of Lenka or something like that.

But yeah, some tragic stuff in this selection too. Step It Up sounds like a Eurovision nul pointer and Dronning af baren is just dire. And a lot of the others are very plain.

"Bland", "plain".

I'm indeed in a DMGP thread.

Leonora, Julie & Nina and Leonora to the final

Don't think any of them has a chance to qualify in Tel Aviv

Really nice on first listen! Can see this doing very well. It could even win the thing.

! I like it, like I said it's a bit like Lenka or something and it's indeed very twee and cute. Didn't expect it to win though.

Bitter old witch Adam hating on such a cute track! I actually really like this on first listen (I think? I have the vague memory of watching one of those videos with an ice skater in it but I don't remember this one) and whilst I did really like League Of Light, I wasn't so in love with it that this one won't do as a substitute. Also before he drops in here I'm betting Ryan will stan this!

Also, first time a Danish song has non-English lyrics since 1997!

I'm delighted that my favorite entry by Leonora won! It is such a sweet song with nice staging too. It reminds me of Lenka but I'm worried how it turns out in Eurovision since people could find it cheap and too cheesy.

Denmark’s place as my 43rd favourite Eurovision country remains intact for another year then.

Utterly, utterly woeful.

This one leaves me really torn. I find it a bit too twee and her voice annoying which leads to me not wanting to admit to liking it, but on the other hand it keeps getting lodged in my head and I have to admit it’s really catchy.

Far from the worst thing they’ve sent recently at least, it stands out and isn’t bland.

Sounds like the soundtrack to some awful, cringeworthy advert. Next!
