The competition will be back after a year’s break as in 2021 Samanta Tina was selected internally to fly the Latvian flag at the Eurovision Song Contest as the 2020 Eurovision edition was cancellled.
Jana Semjonova (Director of LTV Programs Department) says:
After a long break, the competition “Supernova” returns to Latvian Television! Our main goal is to find the best song to perform at the grand 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 authors.
A special LTV jury will be responsible to evalute all the submitted entries and shortlist them. The Supernova shows will be broadcast on LTV in February.
LTV has stated that it reserves the right to invite artists and composers to partake in the competition.
