Denmark had competed in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest three times. The Danish broadcaster DRhosted the first Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2003, having developed the contest’s predecessor MGP Nordic.[1]

Having come in the top five in the first three contests, DR decided to withdraw Denmark from the contest to continue with MGP Nordic with Sweden‘s SVT and Norway‘s NRK.[2]In 2007 DR revealed that they have no current plans to return to Junior Eurovision in the near future, being happy with the MGP Nordic competition.[3]

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) had previously been negotiating with commercial broadcasters to replace the Nordic broadcasters at Junior Eurovision. TV 2 has said however that they had no plans to return Denmark to Junior Eurovision.[4]
