Denmark has enlisted former elite ice skater Leonora Colmor Jepsen as their Eurovision entry this year, but if they were secretly hoping she’d bag some extra points showing off her skills from the rink, they’ll be woefully disappointed — she spends her entire set sat on a gigantic chair.
Perhaps she’s taking a break from all those spins? Or maybe someone figured out the impracticality of building an ice rink in Tel Aviv.
At just 20 years old, Leonora was born in Hellerup, just north of capital Copenhagen. She’s been skating since the age of seven, winning various titles including Denmark’s Junior Champion. She also competed in the Nordic Championships and the World Championships for Juniors.
Check out her ice skating skills below.
She no longer competes at elite level, and although she still choreographs routines, she’s since turned her attention to her other passion: music.
What is Denmark’s Eurovision 2019 song called?
Written by Lise Cabble, Melanie Wehbe and Emil Lei, Denmark’s entry is called Love Is Forever. And yes, the song is as frothy and forgettable as it sounds.
