Denmark was represented at the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 by Jakob Sveistrup with the song "Talking to You". He placed third in the semi-final and then ninth at the final. His song was selected through Denmark's national selection process titled Dansk Melodi Grand Prix.

The 2005 edition of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix took place in Forum Horsens on February 12, 2005, hosted by Jarl Friis-Mikkelsen, Birthe Kjær, and Annette Heick. The Olsen Brothers, winners of the Eurovision Song Contest 2000 entered a song in the competition in the hope of repeating their triumph but placed only second. The winning entry was "Tænder På Dig" by Jakob Sveistrup. However, for Eurovision the song switched to English lyrics, with the new title "Talking to You". The song is written and composed by Jacob Launbjerg and Andreas Mørck.

Jakob Sveistrup is a 33 year old school teacher and works in a special school for children with autistic spectrum disorder. Jakob Sveistrup lives and works in Odense. He became known by the Danes when he participated in ‘Star for a Night’ on DR TV in 2003. He nearly went all the way but was beaten in the final.

The spokesperson who revealed Denmark's votes for other countries was Denmark's 1983 entrant Gry Johansen.[1]
