Den Norsken Sangen 10 was the tenth edition of the Norwegian music competition that selected Norway's entry for the North Vision Song Contest 13. The selection had only one final held for the first time in Valhall Arena in Oslo, celebrating ten editions of the selection. Katastrofe won the final with the song "Holde rundt deg" marking the second song in the contest being sung in Norwegian language.
211 (from 234 last edition) entries were submitted with a jury of 5 people from music companies in Norway having to shorten them into 10. No foreign act was once again participating, making it clear that NRK looks only for native talents in the next editions.
NRK set a poll in order to let the public decide if the format should be changed and on January 24, 2015 the national selection returned to its old format with one single final after getting voted by the 44.12% of the voters. 32.35% voted for the format that was used in the last four editions and 23.53% voted for a brand new format including 2 semi-finals before a big final.
