Before North Vision

During the third edition of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, DR announced the format of the following edition which would be similar to most of the national selections; ten acts including nine Danish acts and one foreigner. Although DR had already announced the format of the selection process, the confirmation of the country didn't come as early as before. Being one of the last countries to confirm, Denmark confirmed their participation on 8 March 2014. It was also announced that a small concert would be held in Copenhagen where several North Vision artists would perform including Medina, Jenni Vartiainen, Tone Damli, Inna, Esma and Lozano and more.
