Denmark is scheduled to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin, Italy. The Danish broadcaster, DR, will use the national selection Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2022 to decide their representative.


Prior to the 2022 contest, Denmark has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest forty-nine times since their first entry in 1957.[1] Denmark has won the contest on three occasions: in 1963 with the song "Dansevise" by Grethe and Jørgen Ingmann, in 2000 with "Fly on the Wings of Love" by the Olsen Brothers, and again in 2013 with "Only Teardrops" by Emmelie de Forest. In the 2021 contest, "Øve os på hinanden" performed by Fyr & Flamme failed to qualify from the semi-final by just one place, coming 11th with 89 points. Denmark has selected all of their Eurovision entries thus far through the national final Dansk Melodi Grand Prix.
