Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 14 was the fourteenth edition of the Danish music competition that selected Denmark's entry for the North Vision Song Contest 19. The selection had a final and a super-final held in Aarhus. Ida Corr won the edition with her song "Down". In North Vision Song Contest 19, it got the second place in the semi-final with 245 points and the ninth place in the final with 243 points.

Information

Despite the fact that the country hadn't confirmed their participation for the North Vision Song Contest 19, on 20 March 2016, a list with ten artists that would compete in the selection was leaked. The list included previous Danish representatives Medina and Stine Hjelm. Following the leak of the list, DR did not confirm or deny the the rumors. Two days later, the Head of Delegation confirmed that the country would take part and the fourteenth edition of the selection would be held, despite the fact that the broadcaster did not make an official statement. The selection was officially announced a week later, on 2 April 2016, with the format being the same as in the past two editions: ten songs would be competing in a final with the top four most voted songs advancing to the super-final.

The selection consisted of a final and a super-final and was held in Atletion, Aarhus. The voters for both rounds were international juries among countries participating in the nineteenth edition. The non-participants and associate members voted as part of the Rest of the World. The competing entries were chosen by the broadcaster after several artists submitted songs.

Venue

Atletion is a combined sport venue, in Aarhus, Denmark, where the football stadium and the arena are the main parts. It consists of the Ceres Park, the stadium, theCeres Arena which is primarily used for handball and the Store Hal, the second indoor exhibition arena.

The venue hosted the fifth edition of the North Vision Song Contest. It was scheduled to also host the second edition of the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix but pulled off due to being selected as the host venue for the North Vision Song Contest.

Competing entries

All the competing entries were selected by the broadcaster. On 2 April 2016, it was revealed that the ten songs of the selection would be presented one by one. The first song was unveiled on the same day the schedule was revealed with the tenth and last song being revealed on 13 April 2016.

Among the competing artists are two previous Danish entrants; Nabiha who represented the country twice in the eighth and sixteenth editions and Stine Bramsen who represented the country in the fifteenth edition. Camille Jones, Ida Corr, Tina Dico and Oh Land have all competed in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix before.
