Having come in the top five in the first three contests, DR decided not to participate in the contest from 2006 onwards to continue with MGP Nordic alongside Sweden's SVT and Norway's NRK. In 2007, DR revealed that they had no plans to return to the contest, being happy with the MGP Nordic competition.
The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) had previously been negotiating with commercial broadcasters to replace the Nordic broadcasters at Junior Eurovision. TV 2 has said however that they had no plans to return Denmark to Junior Eurovision.
