Den Norsken Sangen 17 was the seventeenth edition of the Norwegian music competition that selected Norway's entry for the North Vision Song Contest 20. The selection had one Final and one Gold Final (Super-final) both held in Oslo. Dagny and American singer Børns were the clear winners of both rounds and got the right to represent Norway in the North Vision Song Contest 20 with the song "Fool's Gold".
NRK announced that Norway will participate in the twentieth edition of the North Vision Song Contest. Despite the outcome of the last edition with Norway getting one of the worst results in their history, the broadcaster didn't want to miss the anniversary edition marking 20 editions of Norway in the contest. The format returned to the usual DNS format with 2 rounds.
Vallhall Arena is a multi-purpose indoor arena, located in Valle-Hovin, Oslo, Norway. The stadium has a capacity of 5,500 people, during matches. The Tippeligaen club Vålerenga uses the arena for training and friendly matches in the winter off-season. It is currently used mostly for football matches. The arena also serves as an event arena.
The arena is also a well-known concert hall, with a capacity of 12,500 people. It's not far away from Valle Hovin, an outdoor concert arena.
