Latvia recruits international songwriters for Supernova
As announced last month, Latvia will be changing their selection format for 2015 to Supernova.
The show’s goal is to find song and singer that can be popular internationally as well as in Europe and Latvia.
A jury of accomplished international songwriters has been put together by LTV. They will select the songs and rework them to fit the styles of the artists they choose.
This jury consists of Peo Nylan, Michael Jay and Jarkko Nordlund.
Peo Nylan has been involved in many Eurovision songs and national selections. He has been involved with national selections of Sweden, Latvia, Estonia, Denamrk and others.
American songwriter Michael Jay has worked with many big names in music including Eminem, Kylie Minogue and Celine Dion.
Jarkko Nordlund is the manager of one of the biggest record labels in Europe.
These three people will select 10 songs (as well as six reserve songs). They will be involved in producing the songs and choosing which artist will sing which song.
