The age limit for interested performers, songwriters and acts falls, as even aged 16 will be allowed to take part in the national selection. A second change to be introduced is the kind of song they are seeking this year. Objective of this year’s selection is to spot a “radio hit” for the 64th Eurovision Song Contest . Therefore the evaluation of the 83 submitted songs was held by a jury formed by representatives of the most popular Latvian radio stations. Furthermore, the national broadcaster this year implemented more strict criteria during evaluating the songs. All submitted songs should be professionally recorded and expressing the song writer’s ideas and philosophy.
