Despite not confirming their participation for the nineteenth edition, a list with artists that would compete in the fourteenth edition of the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix was leaked on 20 March 2016. The list included previous participants such as Medina, Rasmus Thude and Stine Hjelm. However, when the Head of Delegation confirmed the country's participation two days later, he denied that the list was real, reporting that the press conference regarding the selection was still to take place. The selection was officially announced by the broadcaster on 1 April 2016.
