We continue the National Final Reminder with something from 2016. Today, we will travel to Denmark.
Denmark back in 2016 decided its representative through Melodi Grand Prix 2016, the show that is still in use today. From the 982 submitted songs, 10 went to the live final.
Anja Nissen and her song “Never Alone” finished second in the superfinal, beaten by 6% from the winning entry. The song was composed by ESC winner Emmelie de Forest along with Rune Westberg and Maureen Anne McDonald (MoZella).
Anja Nissen was born on 6th of November 1995, in New South Wales, Australia to Danish parents. She was the winner of the 3rd season of the Australian edition of The Voice. Her first Eurovision attempt came in 2016 and one year later, she made her dream come true. In 2017, she won the Danish national final with her song “Where I Am”. At the final of Eurovision the song finished 20 out of 26 competing entries.
