Aaaah Denmark. Home of our Princess Mary and Prince Frederik, butter cookies, vikings and three wins in the Eurovision Song Contest.
The last of those wins, of course, was back in 2013 when Emmelie de Forest triumphed with her single ‘Only Teardrops’.
Since then, however, the Danish results have been less than rosy; they failed to qualify for the Grand Final in both 2015 and 2016 and finished 20th last year.
Will the Danish turn the corner in 2018 thanks to Rasmussen and his single ‘Higher Ground’?
Rasmussen truly looks like a heavy metal singer, especially when flanked by his on-stage co-horts in the video below.
But the song is a stirring, dramatic mid-tempo march that feels like it ideally belongs with the visuals projected onto the screens behind.
Huit points de nous.
