Den Norsken Sangen 07 was the seventh edition of the Norwegian music competition that selected Norway's entry for the North Vision Song Contest 10. The selection had one Final and one Gold Final (Super-final) both held in Oslo. Sophie Elise won the selection with her song "Lionheart".


At first, the seventh edition of Den Norsken Sangen was unlikely to take place due to the high costs of hosting the North Vision Song Contest 9, but on 26th July, the national selection was confirmed by the broadcaster for the start of September and the last week before the songs deadline. All the songs were presented at once on Monday 28th July, during a live streaming.

In the first round only juries from NVSC participating countries could give their votes. After the voting of the first round is closed, the four most voted songs would progress to the Gold Final. In the Gold Final, norwegian televoting decided the winner.


Oslo Spektrum is an indoor multi-purpose arena in east central Oslo, Norway. It opened in December 1990. It is currently owned and operated by Norges Varemesse (Norway Trade Fairs), who also own and operate the Norges Varemesse conference center in Lillestrøm which is Norway's largest conference center.

Oslo Spektrum is primarily known for hosting major events such as the Nobel Peace Prize Concert, Eurovision Song Contest, and concerts by artists of national and international fame, such as Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Chris Brown.

Songs presentation

All the songs were presented at once on Monday 28th July, during a live streaming. In this edition, there was no foreign act, so all the singers came from Norway. They were all quite unknown in the music scene, except Tooji. He represented Norway in Eurovision Song Contest 2012 and announced the Norwegian votes at North Vision Song Contest 4. Tommy Fredvang was the only returning artist in DNS after trying in the forth edition with "Vampyrane" achieving the forth place.
