Rasmussen has won the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix and will represent Denmark at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon. His song Higher Ground has won by a combination of jury votes and public votes. Ten acts participated in the national final, with three song advancing to the super final. Rasmussen won that super final with 50% of the votes.

I am so happy that this song has won the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix. When I first listened to the song I immediately liked it. I thought that the live performance was great and I was very happy to see that staging. It doesn’t need that much improvement in my opinion. His vocals were very impressive as well. I think it was clear that Rasmussen was the best choice for Denmark, since this song will definitely qualify for the final. For now this is my favourite song of all the selected songs. 8/10
