Before Northvision

NRK confirmed the Norwegian participation in the North Vision Song Contest 19 on the last day before the deadline due to focus on other projects, as stated by the broadcaster. They never thought of withdrawing especially with the already guaranteed final spot after last edition's third place.

NRK decided to cut the national selection to only one round for this edition due to lack of time. The broadcaster internally selected 4 artists with 4 songs to participate in the national final.

Den Norsken Sangen 16

The four participating acts were announced on 24 May 2016, one day before the show. In this edition, only televoting was used. Only people from Norway could vote by SMS or by phone calling. The final results were revealed on 29 May and surprisingly the girl group Served were announced as the winner and got the right to represent Norway in the North Vision Song Contest 19 with their pop track "Psycho". It was the first entry in the Norwegian language after six editions.
