|Singer||: Emmelie de Forest|
|Song||: Only Teardrops|
Emmelie de Forest has quite an impressive story to her name already. On 14 May Emmelie de Forest will fly the Danish flag in the first semifinal of the Eurovision Song Contest 2013.
Growing up in the town of Mariager in the North Denmark Region, Emmelie started singing professionally from an early age. Since she was 14, she has been touring all over Denmark with the Scottish musician Fraser Neill, performing both own songs and folk/blues-versions of hits from e.g. Nirvana and Johnny Cash. An important part of Emmelie's stage performance has always been her footwear - or the lack of it.
