Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 1993Edit

Danmarks Radio (DR) continued to use the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix contest to select the Danish entry for Eurovision.

The final was held on 3 April 1993 in Odense, hosted by Keld Heick and Kirsten Siggaard. Ten songs competed in the contest and the winner was selected over two rounds of voting. In the first round, a nine-member jury selected the top five songs to advance to the second round of voting, where the winner was selected solely by a public televote. The results of the public televote were revealed by Denmark's regions and led to the victory of Tommy Seebach Band with the song "Under stjernerne på himlen". This was Seebach's seventh appearance at Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, having previously won twice (in 1979 and 1981 (with Debbie Cameron) as well as placing 2nd in 1982, 4th in 1984, 2nd in 1985 and 4th in 1987. The show was watched by 1.9 million viewers in Denmark, making it the most popular show of the week.[1]
