Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 1986Edit

The Danish national final to select their entry, the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, was held on 22 February 1986 at the Danmarks Radio Studios in Copenhagen, and was hosted for the ninth straight time by radio and television host Jørgen de Mylius. Five regional juries across Denmark selected the winning song out of five songs that survived a semifinal round.
