Latvian TV opted for a three semi-final system this year. In the first two of them, 10 songs were presented and five each made it directly to the final. In the third semi-final tonight, all the non-qualifiers of the first two semi-finals got another chance with two of them being chosen, one by televote and one by a specially formed jury. Altogether, twelve songs will now participate in the big final which will take place in Ventspils next Saturday.
The participants tonight were the following (qualifiers in bold):
  • Dace Upīte - Magnet
  • LieneCandy - Love Is Like An Aeroplane
  • Crazy Dolls - Positively Thinking
  • Ģirts Zebuliņš & Atis Zviedris - Rough Enough
  • Juris Ludženieks - Beautiful World
  • Sabīne Berezina - Let Me Be
  • Elīna Krastiņa - Look Back At Me Again - Televote winner
  • Ineta Rudzīte & Uldis Timma - Walking On My Tiptoes
  • Ivo Grīsniņš-Grīslis - Cinderella - Jury's favourite
  • Dace Upīte & Nikolajs Puzikovs - It's Not Easy
The running order for the final was also decided and looks like this:
  • Evija Sloka - Don't Stop The Dance
  • Elīna Krastiņa - Look Back At Me Again
  • Ivo Grīsniņš-Grīslis - Cinderella
  • Triānas Parks - Upside Down
