In mid 2003, auditions were held in Aarhus & Copenhagen. The best 30 contestants were chosen to perform in 3 groups of 10 in front of the Danish TV audience, the 3 contestants with the most votes per group advanced & one wildcard being chosen to the Top 10.
Season two has the record for shortest Idol program in production with production lasting no more than 3 months.
Season two of Idols Denmark is often cited as the most unsuccessful of all Idol seasons with confirmed sources listing that not even 1,000 people had bothered to turn up to the auditions again in Aarhus & Copenhagen. Rikke was also denied her promised contract with BMG Denmark, though her debut single Get There sold moderately well.
