Latvia: 71 songs for national selection

Today was the deadline to submit songs to Eirodziesma, the national selection of Latvia.

Only 71 songs have been submitted which is 8 less than last year, however, the jury will wait a few more days before it finalizes the number as some songs might have been sent by post.

At the moment the composers and authors have not been announced, however it is known that many well known artists will be taking part as well as many returning singers. The 20 semi finalists will be known on the 14th of December.

This year only Latvian authors and composers could take part and the songs submitted in Eirodziesma could not have taken part in any other selection previously. With 2 semi finals and a second chance show we will have a total of 12 finalists. A total of 5 semi finalists will qualify to the final from each semi, 3 by tele-vote and 2 by jury, plus 2 from the second chance show, one by audience and one by jury.

Who do you think will participate in the Eirodziesma?
Any faces you want to see?
If so comment!
I think we will see Trianas Parks entering and doing well in Eirodziesma 2011!
