Latvia is taking the patriotic route for their 2014 selection show Dziesma. The slogan is “Made in Latvia” and will only allow Latvian songwriters to participate.
LTV has revealed that they have received 73 submissions hoping to represent Latvia in Eurovision 2014. Among these entries are 60 songs in English, 11 in Latvian, one in Russian, and one in French.
Once these songs are initially screened, 24 will be announced in a special press conference on December 2. These 24 will be invited to appear in one of two semi-finals on February 1 or 2 at the venue “Sapnu fabrika” in Riga.
From there, only 12 will continue to the final in the venue “Juras varti” in Ventspils on February 22. The winner of the night will go on to represent Latvia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
