Aura Dione won the edition with her song "In Love with the World". In North Vision Song Contest 7, it got the first place in the semi-final with 97 points and the eleventh place in the final with 116 points.
DR decided to keep the format of the second edition as it seemed to be successful. However, it was decided that there will be two artists competing in the duels instead of eight different. The edition started on 10 January 2014 and finished on 27 January 2014 with Aura Dione being the winner.
The selection consisted of seven duels, divided in three parts: the quarterfinals with four duels, the semifinals with two duels and the final with one duel.

From the quarterfinal duels, two songs advanced to the semifinal duels and from there two songs advanced to the final duel from where the winner was decided. The only difference from the previous edition is that in each duel, except the final one, the songs were by the same artist. Because the two competing artists were selected already by the broadcaster, the songs were not selected as in the previous editions and instead the artists selected them by themselves.
