It's hard to believe that just one year ago A Friend In London won Dansk Melodi Grand Prix in Ballerup. They then went on to achieve a very respectable 5th place in Düsseldorf last May.
Tonight Denmark will once again choose their entry, this time as Dansk Melodi Grand Prix is held in the northern city of Aalborg with just as much glitz and glamour as last year.
Nine talented acts will battle it out for the top spot in Aalborg, all vying to represent their country in Baku in May. Also, this year four international juries from Azerbaijan, Germany, Norway and Russia will help to decide the result in addition to the Danish jury and public.
The show will also be available to watch LIVE starting at 20:00 CET on DR's website.

The Nine Acts

Why not take a look at the list below of all nine acts participating tonight. You can listen to all of them on broadcaster DR's official Dansk Melodi Grand Prix website and also vote on your favourite (although this vote will not be part of the show).

Interval Act

Last year's winners of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix - A Friend In London - will perform their winning song New Tomorrow in the interval act but this time with a bit of a twist as Howie. D. from the American supergroup Backstreet Boys is going to join the band on stage and sing the song with them. It ought to be an amazing performance!

Voting

The knock-out style of voting that has decided the winner in previous years has now been replaced a new voting system:
  • Three acts are voted through to a superfinal, decided by the Danish jury and the viewing public.
  • Final vote is between the Danish Jury (10%), International Juries (40%) and the viewing public (50%).
We hope you enjoy the show tonight and stay tuned to Eurovision.tv to find out who has won Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2012.
In the meantime why not take a look at some photos from the dress rehearsal held last night in Aalborg:
