Denmark used the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2002 contest to select their entrant to the Eurovision Song Contest 2002 in Tallinn, Estonia. The final was held at the Cirkusbygningen in Copenhagen on 9 February 2002 and was hosted by Michael Carøe and Signe Svendsen


The winning song was chosen by 4 televoting regions, SMS voting and an expert jury in two rounds of voting — firstly to select the best 5 songs, and then to select the winner. The expert jury included composer of several Danish ESC entries Keld Heick, singer Gry Johansen (Denmark 1983) and singer Sanne Gottlieb (Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2000 and 2001).

The winner was Malene Mortensen with the song "Vis mig hvem du er" which was translated into English as "Tell Me Who You Are"
