Introducing 2012: Denmark!

All the entries for the 2012 contest have been selected and now My Eurovision Diary will introduce them to you!

Entrant: Soluna Samay

Soluna Samay was born and raised in Guatemala, by her German father and her Swiss-German mother. At the age of 10 the family moved to Denmark, settling down on the small island of Bornholm. As many others before them, they fell in love with Denmark, and bought a small country house which they renovated. Today Soluna lives in Copenhagen, one of the many places she considers home. When you have lived this many places, travelling and performing all over Europe and the world, you get a special relationship to people, cities and countries. A way of living which has taught Soluna a lot throughout the years and which she values highly in her life. This background is the reason that she masters 5 languages. She feels like a world citizen.

When Soluna sings her own songs you can tell that she has something on her mind. But this is also the case when she sings and interprets songs by other composers. She makes the songs relevant and sings them as if they where her own. When they first met Soluna, Isam B, Chief 1 and Remée were so moved by her voice and her personality, that there was no question that she was the right singer to perform their song in the Danish Melodi Grand Prix.

Entry: ‘Should’ve Known Better’

As well as Soluna the song was selected through Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, The song was composed by Chief 1 & Remee and penned by Chief 1 ,Remee & Isam B and it’s sung in English.

Tomorrow we will introduce the Russian entry, note that the entries will be introduced according to the running order!

  1. Once again Denmark sends an entry similar to all but one entry they have sent since 2008, a professionally produced and contemporary song confidently performed. I could remember the melody (both verse and chorus) after having listened to the song only once, and since it is generally a huge advantage to be instant, I expect Soluna to get another good result for Denmark. However, the melody is not very original and reminds me of several other songs which might be part of the instant appeal the song has. Anyway, I really love the melody and think that the straightforward pop lyrics are among the best this year. Due to the lack of originality I give only 8/12 and 13th place on my pre-rehearsals list.
