Meet REDDI, Denmark representatives in Eurovision 2022

This year Denmark has chosen REDDI as its representatives on Eurovision 2022 that will take place in Turin next May with the song “The Show”. But who are REDDI? In this article you will have the opportunity to know more about Denmark’s band for Eurovision 2022.

About REDDI

Danish band Reddi, consisting of Mathilde Savery, Agnes Roslund, Ida Bergkvist and Ihan Haydar will perform the song The Show at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.

Ihan Haydar, born in 1993 in the Danish town of Naestved, was previously a member of the Danish band L.I.G.A. and played drums when Soluna Samay represented Denmark with “Should’ve Known Better” at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2012. This year, she was one of Reddi’s dream artists to participate in the Danish Song Contest together with producer Chief1.

Mathilde Savery is a guitarist and vocalist whose style resembles 80s rock. She had played a few festivals in her country before joining this project.

Agnes Roslund is a 19-year-old guitarist born in the Swedish city of Malå. The artist was part of Samira Manners’ backing band at Melodifestivalen 2022 but left to join the band Reddi and compete to represent Denmark at the European contest.

Swedish-born Ida Bergkvist is a bass player who has been performing in shows and concerts for several years. With the help of Reddi, she has won her ticket to Turin.

The song takes us back to the last decades of the last century in a cry to be true to yourself when others doubt you saying that you will never let go and that you are not sorry to be the way you are. It can also be interpreted in the message that all the destructive comments people make about you can take their toll and hurt you but in the end you have to try to find a way to overcome them and cancel them. They complete the message of the song with their flamboyant and flamboyant style of dress and an energy on stage that makes the song take on strength and meaning.

Lyrics

All the things you said when I was just a kid
Telling me that I, I needed to fit in
Year after year, I never understood
How you could’ve dropped me when I needed you the most

If this is what I want
That’s how it’s gonna be
I am not afraid of what’s in front of me

You can try me
You can’t stop me
And I will never let it go
I will keep up with the show
I’m not sorry
This is all me
And I will never let it go
I will keep up with the show
[Post-Chorus]
So you, you, you
You can try me

All the things that I, I wanted to forget
The worst thing you said kept playing in my head
You never followed and now you’re blocked
And now and forever, I’ll show you what I’ve become

If this is what I want
That’s how it’s gonna be
I am not afraid of what’s in front of me

You can try me
You can’t stop me
And I will never let it go
I will keep up with the show
I’m not sorry
This is all me
And I will never let it go
I will keep up with the show

You can try me
You can’t stop me
And I will never let it go
I will keep up with the show
I’m not sorry
This is all me
And I will never let it go
I will keep up with the show

And I will never let it go
I will keep up with the show
So you, you, you (One, two, three, four)
You, you, you
You can try me

Denmark in Eurovision

Denmark first appeared in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1957. The country is located in Scandinavia. In 2001, the Danish capital of Copenhagen played host to the biggest crowd ever to that time when 35,000 people attended the Grand Final in the city’s Parken Stadium.

Denmark, birth country of one of the world’s most the famous fairy tale writers, Hans Christian Andersen, has won the Eurovision Song Contest three times; in 1963, 2000 and 2013.

Denmark made its debut in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1957 and got off to a strong start, finishing third with its very first attempt. Shortly after this, Grethe & Jørgen Ingmann won the contest with Dansevise in 1963. However it wasn’t all plain sailing; following a poor placing in 1966, Denmark withdrew from the contest, not to be seen again until 1978.

In 2000, the competition took place in Stockholm and Denmark scored its second victory in the Eurovision Song Contest with the Olsen Brothers and Fly On The Wings Of Love. Despite being an initial rank outsider in the betting odds, the brothers commanded a convincing lead from the start of the voting and took the contest to Denmark for the first time in nearly 40 years. Rollo and King flew the flag for the home team in Copenhagen in 2001, finishing second, before the tables turned and Denmark scored its worst-ever placing, last, the following year.

In 2013 the Eurovision Song Contest was held in Sweden, and, as happened in 2000, Denmark won the competition. Emmelie de Forest’s Only Teardrops won both the jury and televote in Malmö and took the competition to Copenhagen once again.
