Four young men will carry Denmark's hopes to Vienna for this year's European singing extravaganza.
Denmark will be represented at the 2015 Eurovision contest in Vienna by the ‘boy band’ Anti Social Media.
 
The four young men, whose members range in age from 19 to 25, won the right to represent Denmark on Saturday night when their song ‘The Way You Are’ beat out nine other entries at the Danish Melodi Grand Prix contest in Aalborg. 
 
Anti Social Media will compete in the 2015 Eurovision semifinals on May 19th and 21st, vying for a spot in the grand finale on May 23rd. 
 
Austria won their right to host this year’s contest when Conchita Wurst claimed victory at the 2014 contest in Copenhagen. That event was massively criticised for overspending that made it the second most expensive Eurovision contest ever
