Denmark in the North Vision Song Contest
◄ 2 Eurovision Heart 4 ►

Denmark took part in the 3rd edition of the North Vision Song Contest which was hosted in Winterthur, Switzerland. The country was represented by Aura Dione with the song "Reconnect". The entry was selected via an internal selection by the broadcaster of the country, Danmarks Radio (DR). The song got the 21st place in the final with 70 points.

Before North Vision

At the Danish press in Reykjavik, it was revealed that Denmark will surely be in the third edition. It was also announced that possible represntatives were Amaranthe, Aura Dione, Anna Noe, Simone and Jesper Nohrstedt. However after the results of the 2nd edition, on 20 June 2013, it was announced that DR was still unsure about the entrant and probably none of the previously mentioned artists would represent the country, stating that they would reveal the entrant later. Aura Dione was announced as the Danish representative on 21 June 2013, while "Reconnect" was presented on 24 June 2013.

"Reconnect" didn't do well in the charts as the other songs did. The song's highest peak, apart from the third place in Danish charts, was the first place in the Romanian charts. The song was also charted in Azerbaijan, Malta and Portugal at low places. Sweden decided to re-introduce the North Vision in Concert with the second concert being held in the country. Denmark participated in the concert and Aura performed twentienth, just before Sweden's Malena Ernman who performed last.

At the allocation drawn, Denmark was drawn to vote in the second semi-final. As Denmark was a big five member, Denmark was an automatic qualifier member and during the  press conference of the big five they were drawn to perform in the first half. Reconnect was drawn to perform 10th and achieved Denmark's worst result in a final by getting the 21st place with 70 points. Highest marks came from Romania, awarding their 12 points to Denmark. After the final results, Aura said: "I'm not dissapointed for the results. I'm just a little sad that this ended. I wish I could do it all over again. If DR asked me, which I doubt, I'd definitely say yes".

Both the semi-finals and the final were broadcast by DR. Nikolaj Molbech and Andrea Elizabeth served as the final television commenator and the radio commentator respectively, both for third time. Peter Falktoft was the semi-final television commentator, replacing Louise Wolff. Elize Ryd was the spokesperson that announced the Danish voting in the final.
