Following their triumph in Sweden last year Eurovision 2014 is taking place in Denmark.
The Danish Nudging Network went into overdrive with a song calibrated to the utmost shouting “We really want to host Eurovision!”. It might be fair to say Azerbaijan was the only other country which wanted the Golden Egg – Portugal didn’t even enter for fear they might win. Not that either of those things was ever likely to happen.
Anyway, Denmark. The country of the moment. Think The Killing/Borgen, Nordic cool and bike lanes. But is it really a fairy tale? See our #danbollocks page for what it’s really like. Here we’re tracking the Danes’ approach to hosting what they like to call Melodi Grand Prix, or #escdk on Twitter. Expect snark.
