|Dansk Melodi Grand Prix|
Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 01 was the first edition of the Danish music competition that selected Denmark's entry for the North Vision Song Contest 5. The selection had two semi-finals and one final held in Herning. L.I.G.A won the selection with "Skylder dig ik' noget". In North Vision Song Contest 5, it got the thirteenth place in the final with 120 points.
The first edition was originally announced by DR to be held for the fourth edition. However it was later postponed and held for the fifth edition. The selection started on 25 August and finished on 14 September with the band L.I.G.A being the winner.
The selection consisted of two semi-finals and a final, all held in, . From each semifinal, the top three songs qualified to the final while the song with the highest score by the jury from the remaining five songs qualified to the final as the "jury qualifier". The competing entries were chosen by the broadcaster after several artists submitted songs, including artists from neighbor countries. However, only sixteen songs were selected including only one foreign song.
Jyske Bank Boxen is an indoor arena, located in Herning, Denmark, that is part of the Messecenter Herning. It hosts concerts, basketball, volleyball, team handball and gymnastics competitions. It has hosted the 2010 European Women's Handball Championships and it will host the 2013 European Short Course Swimming Championships.
On October 1, 2010, Danish financial institution, Jyske Bank purchased naming rights to the arena. The arena's opening event, on October 20, 2010, was a concert by Lady Gaga, during The Monster Ball Tour, with Semi Precious Weapons as her opening act. The arena was also being considered as the venue for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014, before the contract was eventually won by B&W Hallerne, Refshaleøen in Copenhagen.
All the competing entries were selected by the broadcaster. The song presentation was on the day of the semi-finals; each song was presented during their semi-final performance.
Among the competing artists is previous Danish entrant Aura Dione, who represented the country in the third edition of the contest. Swedish band Icona Pop also competed in the selection as the foreign act of the edition.
