Den Norsken Sangen 09 was the ninth edition of the Norwegian music competition that selected Norway's entry for the North Vision Song Contest 12. The selection had one Final and one Gold Final (Super-final) both held in Oslo. Qleo won the selection with the song "Someone's Watching Me" being first in both first and second round.
This time, NRK confirmed automatically the participation in North Vision Song Contest 12 with the announcement of the submissions opening for DNS 09. 234 entries were submitted with a jury of 5 people from music companies in Norway having to shorten them into 10. The same format since the sixth edition remained but rumours said that a change is likely for the tenth edition. It was the third time since the seventh edition that there was no foreign act participating.
In the first round only juries from NVSC participating countries could give their votes. After the voting of the first round is closed, the four most voted songs would progress to the Gold Final. In the Gold Final, norwegian televoting decided the winner.
Oslo Spektrum is an indoor multi-purpose arena in east central Oslo, Norway. It opened in December 1990. It is currently owned and operated by Norges Varemesse (Norway Trade Fairs), who also own and operate the Norges Varemesse conference center in Lillestrøm which is Norway's largest conference center.

There were complains when the television personality, model and former stripper Lene Alexandra (in 2005, she and another woman claimed that they had sex with Robbie Williams, which she later has admitted was a lie) was announced to participate with the controversial song "My Boobs Are OK" from the public stating that she isn't able to represent the country in an international level.
