The Latvian national selection Supernova 2016 will kick off on 7 February and the identity of the 20 participating acts is currently a national secret. They will be revealed during a special show on 31 January at 21:25 local time (20:25 CET)

Supernova 2016 will warm up already tonight with a special show featuring the members of the selecting jury that will tell about their experience as well as reveal what were they looking for among the submitted songs. A total of 120 entries from 88 artists were submitted to LTV for Supernova 2016. The demos were previously available for listening on Suprnova’s Soundcloud account, for a short period.

Supernova was launched last year as the new Latvian national selection, which eventually was a success: after failing to qualify to the final between 2009-2014,  Aminata finished second in the second semi-final and sixth in the grand final. Thanks to Aminata ‘s success in last year’s Eurovision Song Contest, an increase in the interest of the contest among songwriters and watchers can be seen.

  • 24/01 – Pre-show
  • 31/01 – Songs reveal
  • 07/02 – Heat 1
