Information

Unlike in most cases, this time DR did not confirm the country's participation in the edition early. The participation was not confirmed officially, as it was only announced on a morning talk show. The country's participation was officially confirmed with the announcement of the 17th edition of the country's national selection. It was announced that for the first time since the 12th edition of the selection, there would be no super-final held; instead the system used between the 4th and 11th editions (bar the 10th special edition)–only one final would be held with ten songs competing.

The selection consisted of a final and was held in Jyske Bank Boxen, Herning. The voters were international juries among countries participating in the 22nd 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.
