Denmark this year chose Reiley as its representative. Reiley was born on November 24, 1997 in Tórshavn, Faroe Islands. He is a singer, songwriter and social media influencer.

His birth name is Rani Petersen, but he is known by his stage name Reiley. He gained fame through TikTok, where he started posting covers in 2019. A few years later, he made his debut with the release of his single “Let It Ring” in 2021. A few singles followed before entering the Danish national final for Eurovision earlier this year.

At the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, he sang his song “Breaking My Heart” and managed to win with 43% of the votes, thus representing his country at Eurovision. The single was composed by Bård Mathias Bonsaksen, Hilda Stenmalm, Rani Petersen and Sivert Hjeltnes Hagtvet.

The entry has already managed to enter the Danish charts. Despite the fact that Denmark has competed 50 times in the contest, Reiley is the first representative who comes from the Faroe Islands.

Denmark will open the second semifinal!
