Latvia will once again use the Supernova shows to select their song for the Eurovision Song Contest. Last year, Aminata was chosen through this contest and she managed to reach the final on behalf of Latvia for the first time since 2008.
Singers and songwriters have until the 1st of November to submit their applications. Latvia, like Estonia, has moved the deadline forward this year so it has more time for staging preparations.
At the end of January, two pre-recorded shows will be broadcast before the two heats. A semi final and the national final will then be shown live. The final will take place on the 28th of February.
