Denmark: Aussievision's 'Dansk Melodi Grand Prix' rankings 1st to 8th

Following the recent announcement from Danish broadcaster Danmarks Radio (DR), the Aussievision team has ranked the eight entries in the running for Dansk Melodi Grand Prix (DMGP) 2022.

In a change of procedure this year the voting will open early on Monday 28 February on the official DMGP app, until Friday 4 March, in time for the single final of the competition on the Saturday 5 March 2022. The songs are available to be listened to here.

In anticipation for the final, 16 of the Aussievision team have listened to and ranked the entries using the Eurovision voting system (12, 10, 8-3 with 1, 2 omitted due to there only being 8 entries), without further ado, here are the results of the Aussievision jury:

8. Patrick Dorgan - 'Vinden suser ind' (80 points)

Highs: 10 points Wade, 8 points Mark & Mike

Lows: 3 points Cooper, Emma, Laura, Tim & Liv

7. Der Var Engang - 'En skønne dag' (81 points)

Highs: 8 points Craig & Tim

Lows: 3 points Kyriakos, Mark, Dale, Hayley & Fleur

6. Juncker - 'Kommet for at blive' (89 points)

Highs: 10 points Dale & Liv, 8 points Guy

Lows: 3 points Steve, Craig & Hugo

"This is such a great 90s Britpop throwback and as a huge fan of that era this was right up my alley. Nicely put together, love the whistling and the Danish language works really well with it." ~ Dale

5. Josie Elinor & Jack Warren - 'Let Me Go' (105 points)

Highs: 10 points Guy & Hugo, 8 points Emma, Wade & Dale

Lows: 4 points Steve & Fleur, 5 points Kyriakos, Mark, Laura & Mike

"Sounds extremely like 'Love Yourself' by Justin Beiber - not sure if that's a good thing or not, but it's a nice song" ~Hugo

4. Morten Fillipsen - 'Happy Go Lucky' (118 points)

Highs: 10 points Kyriakos, Steven, Mike, 8 points Cooper & Fleur

Lows: 3 points Guy, 4 points Mark, Craig, Hugo & Wade

"Morten just missed out on my 12 points. There was something delightfully Danish about his synth-pop song. The whole thing was cohesive and something I would listen to outside of the contest." ~Kyriakos

3. Reddi - 'The Show' (121 points)

Highs: 12 points Mark, Steven, Craig & Wade

Lows: 3 points Mike, 4 points Emma, 5 points Liv

"This sort of early 2000s throwback isn't really my thing, but I think this is very well-structured and clearly composed with an impressive visual production in mind. Am excited to see this one live!" ~Craig

"The leader singer has a distinctive voice, and whilst the ballad-like opening is fine the song really kicks up a gear when the chaotic rock section begins (injecting life to a really mostly dull/sedate national final selection). I’d likely enjoy a live version of this more too." ~Steven

"If last year was all about the 80s, let’s make this one all about the 90s. Grunge girl group? Gorgeous! Things really kick off when the track goes alt-rock after a minute or so. Would sit nearly next to Jaguar Jonze’s Little Fire in the second half of semi #1. Wishful thinking, perhaps?" ~Mark

2. Confessions - 'Hallelujah' (141 points)

Highs: 12 points Kyriakos, Emma & Guy

Lows: 5 points Wade, 6 points Mike, Dale & Fleur

"This is a really enjoyable, bright and happy pop song. It has a nice melody with some really good hooks… it feels like it’s going to be in my head all day, and I’m fine with that!" ~Guy

"Despite channelling Dr Alban circa 1993, 'Hallelujah' is Denmark's best entry this year. The male and female voices harmonise well and the chorus is catchy enough to remember after just one listen. I love the gospel vibe, particularly in the bridge and the song progresses well although the ending is a bit anti climactic for my liking." ~Emma

"Another 80's inspired song from Denmark that gets my 12 points. It's really catchy. It has a bit of a choir moment which suits the song. The chorus is super catchy." ~Kyriakos

1. Fuld Effekt - 'Rave med de hårde drenge' (163 points)

Highs: 12 points Liv, Cooper, Laura, Hugo, Mike, Tim, Dale, Hayley & Fleur

Lows: 3 points Wade, 6 points Guy

"Raving with the tough boys. Okay. This is very out of the box for Denmark and I am here for it. Who knew Danish rap was a genre...and who knew it works. I'm a fan of national language songs in the modern era and especially in contemporary songs like this. Send them." ~Fleur

"This is exactly what I would NOT expect to see in the Danish line up and I LOVE it! It's giving me a grimey Dizzee Rascal sound and it works. Have no idea how it will come across live, but I don't care, this is fantastic!" ~Dale

"This has instant impact and appeal. There's a retro feel to some of the production, but it works. I don't understand a word, but it doesn't matter! I do fear this may unravel live and the boys come across as dweeby manboys, but I'm happy to see this style of music in a Danish selection." ~Mike

"The only song of this crop that is evenly remotely memorable, so this has to win. The staging could well end up a mess, but if it's anything that works then I want this to win. When I hear this song it's either really catchy or a bit annoying, sometimes both, but at least it adds something interesting rather than all the other bland pop. Not the greatest musical composition ever but the best option for Eurovision." ~Hugo
