Final

The DMGP was held at the DR TV studios in Copenhagen, hosted by Jørgen Mylius. 12 songs took part with the winner being decided by voting from five regional juries.

At Eurovision

On the night of the final Brixx performed 13th in the running order, following Spain and preceding Yugoslavia. Denmark was one of very few countries to provide a contemporary-sounding entry in a contest dominated by 1970s-style Eurovision songs, but this proved not to be what the juries were looking for in that year. At the close of voting "Video, Video" had received only 5 points (3 from Portugal and 1 each from Ireland and Sweden), placing Denmark 17th of the 18 entries, ahead only of the nul-points entry from Finland. The Danish jury awarded its 12 points to contest winners Germany.
