The list included previous participants such as Medina, Rasmus Thude and Stine Hjelm.

The selection was officially announced by the broadcaster on 1 April 2016.
Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 14 was the fourteenth edition of the Danish music competition that selected Denmark's entry for the North Vision Song Contest 19.

The ten songs competed in the final with the top four most voted advancing to the super-final of the selection.
The ten songs of the selection were presented between 2 and 11 April 2016. The voting in the final started on 15 April 2016 and ended one week later, on 23 April 2016 with the four songs that qualified to the super-final being revealed on 24 April 2016.
The super-final of the selection took place between 24 April and 8 May 2016 at Atletion in Aarhus. The top four songs of the final competed in the super-final. "Down" performed by Ida Corr was selected as the winner by an international jury voting.
