concretely, the savings that there are only eight songs in the 2020 edition of the competition. It is two fewer than usual, which so far has been ten songs in the MGP's.
- Yes, it is true that we spend a little less money at the MGP this year. In turn, we spend little more on other children's programmes, so on the way we go in zero, says senior manager for kids and lifestyle in the DR, Signe Aggerholm, to Ekstra Bladet.
She says that DR since the turn of the year as something new, also have made television for children between zero and three years and has expanded the Ultra-the target group from 12 to 14 years. It has cost me.
- Therefore we have had to prioritise our resources, and it means, among other things, a MGP will be shorter in years. In turn, we have decided that the show must be just as creative and ambitious as it usually is. It will not cut on, says Signe Aggerholm and continues.
- We are not interested in living with a halvfesent MGP, we believe, therefore, that fewer songs were the best solution inside the framework, we have, she says.
