LATVIA – LTV, Latvia’s national broadcaster, has revealed the specifics of their Eurovision 2022 selection procedure, and Supernova is returning!
Because of the internal pick of Samanta Tina for “Moon Is Rising” in 2021, there was some worry among fans that LTV would continue to use internal choices. However, LTV’s official website announced this morning that the selection process is officially opened.
LTV will accept submissions from now through the 7th of December, with the only restriction being that all performers, writers, and producers must be at least 16 years old. No more than a third of the submission’s performers, writers, and authors may be based outside of Latvia..
For the Supernova 2022 event, which will take place in February 2022, LTV has organized a jury to pick the best entries. In December 2021, the names of those who have been selected will be made public. In January 2022, all the specifics of the selection process will be made public.
LTV Programs Department Director, Jana Semjonova, says
“Our main goal is to find the best song to perform at the grand final of the eurovision Song Contest in May 2022 in Italy. We are looking forward to the new performers and songwriters who still want to break into the Latvian popular music industry, as well as to the songs of already experienced and popular writers.”
