One of the latest developments today came from Denmark, the quiet country of the north, Denmark made the first statements today in the morning.
Here are all the details;
Martin Brygmann and Tina Müller will lead this year’s big music festival.
Actress and musician Martin Brygmann and TV host Tina Müller can start practicing that phrase . Together, they will host this year’s edition of Denmark’s largest music festival.
– I am extremely proud to be allowed to host something as traditional as the Danish Melody Grand Prix. I myself grew up with the Grand Prix and, like many others, have stood with the hairbrush in hand and sung along in front of the television, so I am really looking forward to being part of the party and gathering the Danes, says Tina Müller.
Martin Brygmann is also looking forward to leading the Danish Melody Grand Prix, which this year rolls across the screen for the 51st time.
– I’m looking forward to it completely insanely. I’m so proud to have been given this task. It’s a very fine torch I look forward to carrying forward.
A legendary show;
43-year-old Tina Müller has for many years worked with journalism in the world of sports, but now also hosts the program ‘Hammerslag’. In addition, she has been in the front several times at DR ‘s big sports show, which she also hosted as late as the beginning of the year.
– Of course, it’s something other than standing in a handball hall or on a football pitch, but I do not think it will be so much different to host the Grand Prix. Both parts are about inviting people to a joint party, regardless of whether it is about sports or music, says Tina Müller, who is currently also helping to cover the World Cup in handball.
Her co-host, Martin Brygmann, has also previously hosted several major TV shows, most recently ‘ DR ‘s Store Juleshow’, which rolled over the crawling-decorated TVs in December.
But even though the hosting position is also new for 57-year-old Martin Brygmann, the Grand Prix universe is far from foreign to him. He has previously been a member of the competition’s professional jury, just as in 2005 he helped write the song ‘I Must Be Crazy’, which was performed by the group Sweethearts.
– The Grand Prix is a legendary show that I have always followed. It is something that has always brought us Danes together, he says and adds:
– In a way, you can use the Grand Prix to take the temperature of our society and the time we live in. When you go back to the archives and look at previous Grand Prix, those shows often represent the trends and topics , that filled our society at the time. I think it’s fun to be a part of.
Lots of partying and colors waiting;
Last year’s Melodi Grand Prix went somewhat differently than planned, when the audience was denied access to the show, which was held in the Royal Arena in Copenhagen, due to corona restrictions.
Instead, it was images of an empty hall that rolled across the TV screens.
This year there will also be no live audience. The show has been moved to studio 5 in DR Byen, which will give this year’s Grand Prix a more cozy and intimate atmosphere.
However, there will still be room for lots of partying on television, promises Tina Müller.
– Our biggest task is to create a formidable atmosphere in the living rooms, even though the Grand Prix looks a little different this year. I think eventually we all need a shot party and colors.
A total of eight songs are participating in this year’s competition, and although Martin Brygmann is looking forward to the role of host of the country’s biggest music festival, he emphasizes that it is first and foremost the musicians who are the big stars of the evening.
– As hosts, our task is to tie the show together and create a good atmosphere, but we must first and foremost make the artists shine. It’s the eight artists and their songs that need to be in focus, because it’s their night.
