As announced earlier, 10 songs are going to compete for the Latvian ticket to Oslo at the final of Eirodziesma 2010. During the TV show Sems, with the majority of the participants of Latvian national final present, the running order at Eirodziesma 2010 was decided.

Today the Latvian Broadcaster, LTV, hosted a press conference informing about the future participation in the contest. The agreement with the long time partner Ventspils City Council was signed for a continuous support in the coming five years.

The press conference was followed by a live show at a TV studio where the draw determined the running order of the songs:

1. PeR – Like a mouse
2. Trianas parks – Lullaby for my dreammate (Diamond Lullaby)
3. Aisha- What for?
4. Lauris Reiniks – Your morninglullaby
5. Dons – My religion is freedom
6. Konike- Digi digi dong
7. H2O – When I close my eyes
8. Kristine Karkla – Purina – Rishti Rashti
9.Ivo Grisnins-Grislis – Because I love you
10. Kristine Zaharova – Snow in July

Among this year's songs, one is sung in an artificially made combination of words and sounds (Digi digi dong) and another song is performed in the Livonian language (Rishti Rashti). The names of several finalists are already well known to Eurovision fans – Lauris Reiniks (represented Latvia in 2003), Aisha (her 3rd Eirodziesma final), Kristine Zaharova (runner up at the Irish final 2009).

There are two musicians this year although working behind the scenes, but still having their songs in the final competition, worth to mention- Martins Freimanis (penned The War is not over and represented the country at Eurovision 2003), as the author of PeR song, and Guntars Racs who is thelyricist behindAisha and Kristine Zaharova's songs.Racs wrote the only song in Latvian on the Eurovision stage so far, Dziesma par laimi (2004) and has been the producer of numerous Latvian entries at the European competition (, Valters&Kazha, Fomins&Kleins etc).

The songs are available at Eirodziesma official website .

Eirodziesma 2010 final will take place on February 27th in Ventspils.
