Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 16 was the sixteenth edition of the Danish music competition that selected Denmark's entry for the North Vision Song Contest 21. The selection had a final and a super-final held in Copenhagen. MAIA won the edition with her song "Tordenkys".


On 27 August 2016, DR confirmed that Denmark would be competing in the twenty-first edition of the North Vision Song Contest. However, it was speculated that Dansk Melodi Grand Prix would be cancelled with a new selection replacing it. On 31 August 2016, however, it was revealed that the edition would be held in order to select the country's entry in the edition. The format being the same as in the past three 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 B&W Hallerne, Copenhagen. 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.


B&W Hallerne is a former industrial complex located on the island of Refshaleøen in Copenhagen, Denmark. Built in the early 1960s by Burmeister & Wain, the complex consists of two large halls which were used to build ships until 1996. Currently the facilities are used for culture and entertainment activities.

On 2 September 2013, Danish public broadcaster DR announced that it had chosen B&W Hallerne as the host venue for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014. The contest was held at the Section Hall 2, which was converted into a music venue with a capacity for 10,000 spectators. The surrounding buildings and areas were transformed into 'Eurovision Island' which was used for additional services related to the contest.


The schedule of the edition was published along with the announcement of the edition's format. The artists of the edition were presented on 31 August 2016 while their songs were presented three days later, on 3 September 2016. Just like in the last few editions, there was no running order draw held. Unlike in the previous editions, there were no dates announced for neither the final or the super-final.
