Before Junior EurovisionEdit

MGP 2005Edit

DR held the 6th edition of the MGP contest on 17 September 2005 to select the Danish entry to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.

The final was held at the DR TV Studios in Copenhagen, hosted by Jacob Riising.[1] The winner was chosen through two rounds of televoting and SMS voting: firstly, the top 5 songs were selected from the 10 competing songs to progress to the superfinal, where the final winner was chosen through another round of televoting. The votes were distributed among a number of regions, who gave points to each song.

The winner was Nicolai Kielstrup with his song "Shake Shake Shake", receiving 96 points.[2]
