Entries that have been submitted to Supernova 2016, the Latvian national selection process for the Eurovision Song Contest, have been made available online.

The songs can be heard on a playlist on Soundcloud. It features 39 of the 100+ songs that were submitted for consideration.

Auditions for next years final have already begun, and the shortlist of 20 will be chosen on 10 December, but that decision will only be made public when the show begins on January 17.

The 20 acts will take part in the live shows. There will be two heats with ten songs each, with the top four qualifying for semi-final round.

The eight semi-finalists will compete for four places in the grand final, which takes place on February 28.


Earlier this year, Aminata won the very first edition of Supernova and represented Latvia at the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna.

She brought her country back into the final for the first time in seven years, and achieved the country’s highest ever points total with her entry Love injected.
