LTV received 73 songs for its pre-selection 2014. It’s notably less than last year when 122 songs were received, this drop can be explained by the new rules which says that only Latvian citizens can participate with their works.
Ilze Ārniece from LTV informs that 60 of the songs are in English, 11 in Latvian and one in Russian and French.
24 songs will compete in the semi-finals on January 18 and 19. Six songs from each semi-final qualify for the national final, to be held on February 1st in Ventspils. The semi-final songs will be presented on December 2nd.
