Lighthouse X (pronounced "Lighthouse Ten") is a Danish pop group with a special social profile consisting of Søren Bregendal, Johannes Nymark and Martin Skriver.

The band was formed with the goal of helping people who face challenges in their lives. They work as ambassadors of three different non-profit organizations who also receive a percentage of the groups profit. In February 2016 the band took part in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2016, the music competition that selects Denmark's entries for the Eurovision Song Contest. The competition was held on 13 February 2016 at the Forum Horsens in Horsens. The band performed "Soldiers of Love" in the Final making it through to the Super final winning with 42% of the public vote. They will perform at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 during the second semi-final on 12 May 2016. Johannes Nymark had previously been a keyboard player for Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest 2014.

I hope their non-qualification is a big wake up call. I'm desperate to see something daring and non-mainstream from Denmark, preferably in Danish!

Well they had a great opportunity with this:

It's not exactly 'daring' but it's in Danish and a lot better than what they actually sent. It came 3rd.

I think there are several entries better than what they chose and would have probably qualified. The two above, "Love me Love me" "Mi Amore" "suitcase" "Summer without you" and possibly even "Hotel A" would have all probably qualified.

I don't care much for which artists are going to perform or not. Im more into variated genres of music than we have seen in the NF... more like Finland's NF actually !!

I think it would be great if we had more soul / funk, pop, rock, even punk rock and heavy metal instead of only one or two genres

My song is more of a mix between Belgium 2010 and Cyprus 2015, and I don't think that's the style of song Denmark will go for. I entered it in hope... Let's see how it goes down in the boardroom when they judge the songs

Some more details have surfaced regarding Denmark’s selection for 2016, where the Nordic country will be attempting to find a song to return them to the Eurovision final.
The national broadcaster for Denmark, DR, has confirmed that Dansk Melodi Grand Prix’s final show will take place on 13th February 2016 in Forum Horsens, Horsens. The city last hosted the selection in 2008 when Simon Mathew was chosen to head to Belgrade for the country and kick-start a 7-year finalist streak, ended by Anti Social Media’s “The Way You Are” in 2015.

Sure thing, but this is definitely not a bad sign is it?
Plus DR said that MGP will change, which a great thing because usually the general quality of songs there is pretty bad.
I think it's possibly that the trend of Denmark winning in Sweden will continue, even though I don't want it to happen.

We'll see, I don't want to prejudge. This could be a good sign, but it can also be a bad sign. However, DR released the try-out in June so composers had months to prepare their songs.

I agree with you but it's also up to the Danish broadcaster to choose songs that are worth something. Given the lineups of the past years, I can't believe they featured everything that deserved a chance to shine. I'm convinced they especially go for safe music because they surely take into account what they think Danes might like - and what could achieve a decent result in Eurovision - but I'm sure they also receive unknown talented people with edgier material.

That's just my opinion, but Denmark needs to look further than their own safe music world that lasted far too long and eventually led to a failure this year. "Daring" or "memorable" should be the adjectives they should keep in mind when making their selection tbh.

I understand what your saying and to an extent I agree. But at the same time their current radio friendly adult contemporary entries are in a way their signature. You can tell its a Danish entry. The biggest problem the contest faces today (besides the behind the scenes rigging) is that all the songs are sounding alike and you can't even tell what country they are from. I don't think you can say the same about the Danish entries even if you don't like them.

Last year's song was a misfire and one of their weakest in years. It felt more like a ESC parody from someone who usually dislikes the Danish entry. After "Only Teardrops" (when they pandered to the ESC fanbase) it sticks out like a sore thumb and doesn't go well with the other entries they have sent.

Perhaps they should be a little more adventurous, but maybe that's not their style. And I would hate for them to change their sound, which has been more successful then not, just for success (something that fans say to trash certain other countries).

I acknowledge that I don't know the Danish music scene outside the Eurovision bubble, but I guess songs can still be current and radio-friendly without sounding like everyone else.

To be honest with you, what Denmark sent since 2009 (minus Only Teardrops) sounds like average Brit/American easy pop-rock to me, and I never felt like it was particularly Danish. But again, my judgement is certainly influenced by my ignorance about what's popular in the country, if that's what sells, then I understand they always went for this type of song. Still, that shouldn't prevent them fro trying new styles.

And "Only Teardrops" just came out of the blue with a different sound, and they won. So without selling their souls to the devil, they're able to offer other things that find an audience. Right now this is becoming linear to me. Please take it as a personal opinion, not as a "truth" I want to impose. :)

Well I don't know able the Danish music scene either, I simply mean in terms of Eurovision. In ESC bubble a Danish entry moves more towards pop-rock AC genre. Everybody else is usually style wise either dated, left field alternative or pure pop so I think the type of entries the Danes send is easy to identify and pick out of a crowd.

And I personally think "Only Teardrops" was selling their sole to the devil as you put it. It was ESC calculated by numbers that can only exist in ESC universe and nowhere else. It's a ESC stereotype and in terms of recent Danish entries it sticks out like a sore thumb. The hardcore fans were cheering crazy for it when they normally called the Danish entry "blah." They pandered to the ESC audience and the EBU rewarded them for it. After all it was the year when things started going down hill with all the manipulation.

I agree with you 100%. All the Danish entries since 2004 are very bland in my honest opinion, they're all in the same style. You can say they come from Denmark because that's the same style they send every single year. Still, I liked their 2011 and 2012 entries though. 2013 was different, even if still radio-friendly, and even though it wasn't one of my favourites I can see how it won in a quite bland year. It's like you said, they didn't need to sell their sould to devil to win.

"Only Teardrops" radio friendly, seriously :?

That song was tailor made for ESC and and only exists because of it. It's an ESC stereotype that is anything but different :lol: I don't know what radio station would ever play that. A lot of songs from that year could at least pass off as an average album track, and OT is certainly not one of them.

I don't think I entirely want Eurovision to be all about radio-friendly songs, though. There are thousands of mainstream, radio-friendly pop tracks released each year, and to me most of them seem to meld together into one amorphous blob; if Eurovision added forty more a year to that list, I don't feel like it'd mean much. If the contest essentially provides an area for a genre that could never exist anywhere else, then... well, I'd much rather it continue to support that genre (and others, of course) than add another forty radio-friendly pop tracks each year. If ESC was just a representative slice of the kind of mainstream pop that's already everywhere, I don't think I'd have been all that attracted to it in the first place - it's entirely because the contest was different that I started to get into it.

I agree I was just responding to the above posts who said "Only Teardrops" was different yet still radio friendly. As if Denmark was taking a risk while still being true to their radio friendly ways. Sorry but I don't agree with that, it wasn't current or radio friendly at all and in the ESC world as safe and predictable as one can get.

I liked the song a lot but it didn't feel genuine coming from Denmark, it was far too calculating. It was like Denmark was Eliza Doolittle and ESC fans Henry Higgins molding them into what they thought was ESC perfection. Even "In a Moment Like This" despite being just as calculating, and a Swedish import to boot, felt more true to what they normally do (it probably would have gotten lots of radio play in the 80s). If you think about it "Calm after the Storm" achieved to perfection what Denmark tries to do. It actually has more in common with most of the Danish entries that everyone loves to call blah and bland then the typical ESC ones that fans worship.

I didn't say "Only Teardrops" wasn't ESC calculated, I meant it was different compared with what Denmark usually sent. Let's be honest: it was meant to please the highest number of people, the way of singing and presentation was partly inspired by the previous winner imo, and there was nothing bold composition-wise. It was catchy for sure, and I wouldn't blame Danes for choosing this because no one would ever listen to it outside Eurovision. Each year, lots of entries are specific to the contest actually.

It wasn't the best song of 2013 to me and I doubt it was the true winning song given the fishy results we got, but I felt like it was refreshing to hear something else from Denmark, even if it was a "pure ESC hit". I'm not gonna lie, that genre they send over and over again leaves me cold, maybe that's why I'm hoping for music diversity from time to time.

Well it is a rather boring bunch of songs, as it often is with Denmark. But for me it is almost obvious that it is made for Anja Nissen and her "Never Alone". Cool song which I can see do rather well in Stockholm. Reminds a little of "You" (::se 2013) and I could almost put money on that the Deb-family is involved in this song as well. I also like Jessicas song, which felt summerish and fun. But the contender for winning will problably be Bracelet, typical danish rock-popish sound that often works. Wouldn't be surprised if Denmark choose wrong and go for the more generic sound (even if all the songs are basically generic this year...).

Apparently, the songs are available now due to a human error. The Sony employee who uploaded the album to Spotify's database entered 29 January 2015 as the release date, instead of 29 January 2016.

At least, that's what Jan Lagermand Lundme claims.

As usual I dont find many interesting songs in the Danish MGP. But I have to agree with most people in here; it has to be Simone! Heart Shaped Hole would be a really good choice for Denmark, and we would probably see Denmark back in the final.

What I find a bit strange is the total lack of diversity of genres and songs in the Danish MGP - year after year after year most of the songs sound like they were written to fit a certain "danish Eurovision sound".
Unfortunately that has lead to Denmark sending many ok songs. But in my opinion they have failen to send a REAL 12pointer. Denmark has even won the contest 3 times... I was never a bit fan of Dansevise. I really did not see why Fly on the Wings of Love did that well. And then, to top it all, Teardrops won in a pretty bad ESC year, without even being in my personal top 10...

It would have been a decent song to add to this bunch of songs, it was like Tom Dice "Me and My Guitar" and John Karayiannis "One thing I should have done (original version, not the ruines ESC version". There isnt anything like it in the final 10 so it wouldn't have clashed with any other songs

I thought we would get some innovation from Denmark after last year flop, but it seems I was wrong.... :/

There's nothing really interesting. At least "Soldiers of love" is nice and catchy. Kristel, Bracelet, Simone or, maybe, Veronicas could qualify (not sure though), but that's all about it. Denmark won't be back to top-10 this year and it's not so unlikely to see them staying in the semifinal again if we take a look at this NF.

Am I the only one who thinks there are many good songs this year?
Almost all of them would, at least, qualify but if I had to choose I would definitely send Simone.

LalehForWD
11th January 2016, 11:11
I think it's a great selection of songs, perhaps the best in years? In the end it's the live performances that counts though.

Regarding people saying the songs sounds similar, maybe they all have the same producer via DR? Anyone knows?

Simone and Muri & Mario are my choices so far. Simone perhaps even able to win the whole Eurovision which would be so epic? :lol::lol:

Zorjan
11th January 2016, 13:11
The songs are indeed very similar and most of them quite bland as well :s The only real difference between this year and earlier years is the fact that I hardly know any of the singers (the only ones I actually do know are Simone and Søren Bregendal from Lighthouse X)..
I do believe, however, that Simone has the best song in DMGP since 2013! I'm not sure it'll win, but I think it may do very well in Stockholm if she performs it well live :D It's one of those songs I listen to over and over again :D

If Simone can deliver Heart Shaped Hole vocally good live (as i know she can) - I hope and is almost 100 procent sure she wins DMGP.

I've just heard Simone's Heart Shaped Hole on Wiwibloggs and it immediately... "clicked in", you know? I liked it from the start. A lot.
Best song of 2016, so far.
Maybe Denmark is going to win again after Sweden? I wouldn't mind, this time.

VikingTiger
11th January 2016, 23:40
So it seems that Simone is the one.... reading this forum. I think she is the best choice, and I can see another decent danish result in Stockholm - but a winner? Definitely not...

Oh christ, Bracelet has the two sons of Nanne Grönvall (member in Swe 96 and been in Melodifestivalen about 15 times, most recent in 2009), Charlie and Felix Grönvall. They were in MF 2014 in the group Little Great Things.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxV4uLp7YuE

Sure I have nothing against them to be honest, and I got a feeling that Bracelet will be in the top 3 in the end...maybe together with Simone and Anja Nissen if they all three work live.

And to add my opinion of Simone, I really like the verses, but the chorus is not working at all for me, way too generic. Has to be rather cool live to make it work.

I don't think more flops will help the situation....... Denmark simply need better composers who understand the meaning of the word "new" and we also need a better screening panel who well pic songs that doesn't sound alike ..... Another flop and DR will once again blame the composers and not rethink the whole concept like Christer Björkman did for Melodifestivalen some years ago

The more I listen to the songs from this years DMGP, the more I like most of the songs. I really think we have a bunch of good songs this year. The best in many years. Sure there are some that are a bit similar. But the songs are still good. I do not get those who say it is a crabby bunch of songs. Many people say we should send something different than what we usually send. We did that last year. Look where that got us.
Anyway let us hope Simone wins this years DMGP and get us in the final again.

It would make more sense to me. She's describing herself in the process to make a surgical removal, so she puts on the surgical mask, she scans the body with a finger to find the point, and then she chooses the blade with which she'll do the cut.

Now when reading the lyrics, finally I start to understand why people like Simones song.

Woah, ok Denmark has one song to get me on their side. Simone's "Heart Shaped Hole". What a mighty fine contemporary pop song. It has such wonderful melodic twists and turns. That bridge is glorious with the 80's synths. I just love it! Providing all the pieces come together on stage, please do not make a big mistake here Denmark.

Acording to a Danish newspaper, Anja Nissen's song "Never Alone", written by Emmelie de Forest might get disqualified. It's because Emilie de Forest have been singing it to 10 of her concerts.

But as long as it was not recorded on anything (video/CD/Tape recorder/etc.) and circulating around does it actually matter?

Did it happen before or after the last September?
The song is the original one; the fact that Emilie de Forest performed it first doesn't change that. So, only the fact that she sang it before 1/9/2015 could disqualify the song.

The rules reads:
"By performing, publishing and sales mean that the original work must not have been or be played at public venues, including radio, television, concerts and on websites (eg YouTube and others). Has the work been published previously, for example, on SoundCloud or similar. DR must immediately be made aware of it, and DR decides whether the work can participate in the competition. "


I see. DR's rules are stricter than EBU's.
They may have a point, then.

Well if the song does get disqualified, then I guess Simone is the winner. The only song I see fighting Simone for the win is "Never Alone" sung by Anja Nissen

I think it's because it was written by Emmelie de Forest. If one of the authors was a complete no-namer, it would've been disqualified without asking. #Iknowitwasarhetoricalquestion

He says that released as in "sung at a concert" is not the same as released as in "put on record and sold" and only the latter would break EBU's rules.
I don't think so.
While it may not give Anja an advantage, I think it still breaks the rules. He should have a talk with EBU about this.

I'm happy that it's one less competitor for Simone and HSH, but I'm also sorry for Anja Niessen: she has literally travelled half the globe for nothing and now she sees herself excluded because of something that it's entirely not her fault.
I hope that she gets the chance to compete with a new song (if she has any available).

22nd January 2016, 03:16
Just heard the songs !!! Soooo...

- David Jay - Rays of Sunlight: ( 6/10 )
So uptempo i really like it ! I wanna dance ! It's the right up beat song for a man to sing. Great and warm voice. Maybe some will consider as an old fashion song but i think is a safe choice. Not a stand out song but a song to cheer you up ... a bit.
On stage: Sure a lot of dance and not a stunning performance...


- Simone - Heart Shaped Hole: ( 8 /10 )
A lot of mystery mood and little dark. I really like it !!! It's not a classic baland but neither an uptempo song. So good but not something that stole my heart from the first listening. Good choice for Denmark, maybe hopes for something good in May but we need to know all the songs first.
On stage:Really promissing ! The song need that mystery mood on satge too. Hope Simone can sing live! The must prepare something really good if they want the ticket to Stockholm!

- Muri & Mario - To Stjerner: ( 9/10 )
Soooo different from the other ! Sooo fresh ! It's a typically 2016 song! Reminds me a bit 'Lean on' ! Love the Danish,great choice than English ! It is a risky song for Eurovision cuz is not a typicall pop song that we all used to see on Eurovision! It's worth to take the risk and who knows...!
On stage: I think that the staging is sooo difficult ! Needs something modern not something usual ! I am afraid that all the performance will help the song stand out or it will ruined it

- Sophia Nohr - Blue Horizon: (3/10)
Boring. Boring. Boring. Such a mess in the melody ! Maybe they aren't sure about the style of the song that they wanted to participate with so they did a mix up. Really nothing intresting,not even her voice. Tottaly wrong choice for Denmark!
On stage: Don't expect something amazing ! Just hope not to be alone in stage and not being motionless

- Veronicas Illusion - The Wrong Kind: ( 4/10 )
One more act for the night. Nothing that i will waiting to see on stage but not even wondering when it ends. I don't like her voice ! A lot of teenage joy for me that i can't handle it. Just Ok, next.
On stage: Sure lot of jumping up and down and something that covers all the stage but without a reason

- Lighthouse X - Soldiers of Love: ( 7/10 )
That is what i am waiting from a male group ! Intresting voices ! Classic pop group song but has a lovely melody without many screams or a really up beating end ! Not a stand out but a good song! Nice choise but not for a top place in scoreboard...
On stage: Hope for a performace and not a fancy choreogrphy ! The key will be the simplicity as the songs allows

- Kristel Lisberg - Who Needs a Heart: ( 4/10 )
For some reason i don't like it. But i can't find exacly why... Maybe because the refrain is too sloow,or because the song doesn't have a great pick at some point i the song. Maybe because noting happens to that song! A song for a fairytale movie such as Cinderella... Not a song to remember among the others.
On stage: I am afraid boring too. A nice idea will be if we see on stage any fairytale act ! Other way why to see it ...

- Jessica - Break it Good: ( 7/10 )
I like it ! It makes me move! I love that tune ! Has something from summer i don't know ! It's not something special or something that will blow your mind. Just a happy song. You like it or hate it.
On stage: hhmmm dancing of course !

- Bracelet - Breakaway: ( 5/10 )
Ok! Nice song but ... Something missing ! Just another group for teenagers that brings a lot of joy ! Something pop something rock not clear enough ... Confusing a lot. Not a great choice though...
On stage: Something like a group with their guitars playing and at the middle or in the end of the song will start jumping or moving around the stage with no reason...

- Anja Nissen - Never Alone: ( 5/10 )
I want to love that song (because of Anja) but i can't. A lot of drums. A song try to write an anthem for someone with no reason. It's the same Never Aloneeee and Never Aloneeee all the time ! Why? I get it Never alone ! Sure i'll remember it but i don't like it ! I like the idea send Anja but with other song more powerful and not this...
On stage: Don't know ! Drums,dancing,stupid choreography and easy learning ... Hope not ! I pray for something wow or else ... sorry Anja


For me the only choice is Muri & Mario !!!! xcheer xcheer xcheer

But also Simone or LighthouseX will be good choices too

Honestly, this is so a two-horse race, and to be honest... I actually like them, both Simone and Muri & Mario.

Now, I do think Simone has more potential, I can see her been better received at the contest and even being a favorite to win. Muri & Mario... they seem more unpredictible: they sound modern, current, catchy, but I don't now if they could work at the stage.

But in any case, if they end up picking any of those two, I'll be happy.

Muri & Marios song is classical danish signature (or designer-) pop. Which has been part of the danish music stage since the 80's with artists such as Tøsedrengene, Dodo and the dodo's + Laid Back..... The signature part serves at something witch the listener can recognize and therefore it is repeated several times (like the flute part in Emilie de Forest winner song)

However danes who like pop songs witch sounds more unfamiliar (or "new") will properly vote for Simone. I think the structure in Simones song is a big mess. It doesn't end anywhere near where it started ..... in a another way people could say I like the beginning, but hate the end or vice versa!!! Simones song sounds more like euro-pop where Muri & Mario sounds more like traditional danish pop.

I think it will be a close run.....

However, Jessica's and Sophia Nohr's songs are the most memorable to me, probably also Muri & Mario.

In the show he can be free to air his opinion on the songs as that's what he is there for, but before? no.

I don't think that the heart shaped cobweb was the best idea for the staging. :?
Her voice seems great, though. xlisten2

Exactly.

If she wins, maybe she will change it, but not likely

I still want her to win. Best song, regardless of the staging. xlove

From the country who gave us King Brinck, King Simon Mathew, Queen Emmelie of the forest, The legend who should have won but those idiots won, Anne Gadegaard, etc.... I think you can pick another winner tomorrow!

I finally had a chance to listen to the ten songs in its entirety and boy, another weak line-up, at least according to my taste. There isn't truly anything that genuinely excites me. That being said, I took a stab at coming up with a ranking so there it goes.



1
Sophia Nohr
Blue Horizon


2
Simone
Heart Shaped Hole


3
Jessica
Break It Good


4
Veronicas Illusion
The Wrong Kind


5
Jay David
Rays of Sunlight


6
Kristel Lisberg
Who needs a heart


7
Anna Nissen
Never Alone


8
Bracelet
Breakaway


9
Muri & Mario
To Stjerner


10
Lighthouse X
Soldiers of Love




I don't think anybody has Sophia Nohr at their top but it's the only passable song for me. Simone's song is my Runner-Up but I can't say I'm in love with it. So I'll be rooting for Sophia but know it's not going to happen.

As someone who really likes to hear songs in the language of the country I should go for Muri & Mario, but the song just doesn't do anything for me....
After a second and a third round of listening to all the entries, I still have no clear favorite. There are a bunch of songs that are nice to listen to, but no one that really made me say "wow" - this is it.

Hey guys, greetings here from Melbourne Australia.

I am really desperate to watch the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix this year. Unfortunately, I work Sunday mornings when it is on. Every year, I go to watch it, and the result is ruined going onto the website to watch the live link. Can anyone suggest a link that is ready made to link right to the video stream itself? Id be so grateful if anyone could PM me or email me sokratis.lakrindis@gmail.com

I can't promise much here, but considering we can vote in the Semi and Final, I'd promise to vote for your favourite song come Eurovision :D

This is the weakest Dansk MGP EVER!!!! :( xcry

I dislike everything! xcry :(

It's so weak and horrific...

I think I want Muri & Mario “To Stjerner” to win.. xshrug

Yep I also think its another weak final in Denmark this year too...

Not one song stands out as something catchy after one listen, the closest are Muri and Mario, I wonder what the translated lyrics would be like if the win...
I think Annas song is a bit boring and Simones the most intelligent but the less accessable it is not a easy listen song at all.

I havn't decided yet who im going to vote for I want to se the live show first

Weak final? :confused:
I'm more nervous for DMGP's outcome than for Sanremo's. http://i.imgur.com/loOLwka.gif
