The 2013 show has been one of the most anticipated in the history of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix with a lot riding on the result, where Denmark will compete just over the bridge in neighbouring Sweden on the 14th of May. are at the Boxen Arena in Herning to cover the final so make sure you keep an eye on Twitter (@Eurovision) for live updates throughout the show.

The buzz in Herning

Dansk Melodi Grand Prix has literally engrossed the entire town of Herning, and there is a lot of gossip and "buzz" floating about about who the winner will be. Looking at comments and reactions on and our official social media channels, it seems that Emmelie de Forest is the big favourite abroad with Only Teardrops. However, on broadcaster DR's own website, a poll has Simone with Stay Awake as the runaway favourite with the Danish public. 

However, as we saw in 2012 , a lot can change on the night. Soluna Samay won what many describe as a shock victory in Aalborg with Should've Known Better, so as the old saying goes, "anything can happen".
