DQ – July 2016

DQ Promo PhotoDQ was the first solo drag performer to take part in the Eurovision Song Contest, representing Denmark in 2007.

DQ is the stage name of Peter Andersen, and he co-wrote the song “Drama Queen” which sadly failed to qualify from the Eurovision semi-final in Helsinki, finishing 19th out of 28 songs. DQ had also failed to qualify initially from the semi-final of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix but managed to secure a place in the final as a wildcard, before of course going on to win.

DQ is a firm fan favourite on the Eurovision scene, and is well-known for doing multiple costume changes and performing a range of Eurovision songs. Let’s just hope that feathered headdress fits on the RVT stage!
