Den Norsken Sangen 12 was the twelfth edition of the Norwegian music competition that selected Norway's entry for the North Vision Song Contest 15. The selection had one Final and one Gold Final (Super-final) both held in Oslo. Aurora Aksnes won both rounds and was selected to represent Norway at the North Vision Song Contest 15 in Copenhagen with the indie pop song "Running with the Wolves".
245 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.
