Koppel, Asbæk and Rønne announced as Copenhagen host trio


An X Factor presenter, a Denmark’s Got Talent judge and a Borgen star – Denmark have pulled out the celebrity stops with their Eurovision 2014 hosts.

Lise Rønne, Nikolaj Koppel and Pilou Asbæk  will be taking to the stage in Copenhagen to guide the audience, and thousands viewing from home, through a musical whirlwind. Last year’s enigmatic host, Petra Mede gave a spectacular half-time show: will the broody Scandinavian Asbæk follow suit in his TV hosting debut?

I’m hoping for Rønne to be lumbered with the peppy backstage chat whilst the men take command of the stage…but perhaps that would be breaking just too much with Eurovision tradition, which has never seen a boy-girl-boy host combo before.
