Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 11 was the eleventh edition of the Danish music competition that selected Denmark's entry for the North Vision Song Contest 16. The selection had one final held in Odense. Nabiha won the edition with her song "Kill It with Love". In North Vision Song Contest 16, it got the twenty-third place in the final with 61 points.
The edition was announced along with the confirmation of the country's participation in the sixteenth edition. It was reported that the format of the edition wasn't decided at that moment. Some days later, it was revealed that the edition would be smaller, similar to the eighth edition's format. Five songs were selected to compete in the edition, all performed by Danish singers and bands.
The selection consisted of only one final and was held in Arena Fyn, Odense. The voters were international juries among countries participating in the sixteenth edition. The non-participants and associate members would vote as part of the Rest of the World but were later counted as normal voters. The competing entries were chosen by the broadcaster after several artists submitted songs.
Arena Fyn (officially: Stadium Arena Fyn) is a sports and concert arena in the southeastern part of the Danish city of Odense. It has an area of 8,500 square metres (91,000 sq ft) and can accommodate 4,000 spectators at sporting events and 5,500 at concerts, where the floor is used.
The Scottish band Travis had a concert in the arena in the October 2007. It is also used for sports, including the Nordea Danish Open. The handball HC Odense (formerly Team Odense GOG) has played their home games in the arena. The Denmark Open has been held in Arena Fyn since 2007. The sports equipment shop Stadium has sponsored the arena since June 2010.
All the competing entries were selected by the broadcaster. The five songs of the selection were presented in five days, one by one. It was initially announced that four songs would be competing, like in the eighth edition but it was later changed to five songs.
Among the competing artists is previous Danish entrant Nabiha who represented the country in the eighth edition of the contest. Emmelie de Forest and Christopher have also competed in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix before.

Voting and results
The voting system, as the selection in general, was simplified. There was no jury application this time and therefore the voters were not divided into jury groups. All the countries were able to vote, including the countries that withdrew from the respective edition of the contest as well as the associate members. Even though it was decided that non-participants votes would be combined so that they would not affect the results as much as participants do, it was later decided that they would vote as normal voters too.
