Musiqq represented Latvia in the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest with Angel In Disguise, but failed to reach the Final. The last time Latvia reached the Final was back in 2008 with Pirates Of The Sea and their sea faring anthem Wolves Of The Sea, finishing in 12th place in Belgrade.
As a result of the three year absence in the Final of Europe's Favourite TV Show, Latvia are trying something different in their approach to find a successful 2012 entry.
Key dates in the calendar
On January 7th and 14th, two semi final shows will be held, each presenting 10 songs. Five songs will progress from each semi final.
The final itself will therefore comprise 10 songs, and will be held in Ventspils on February 18th 2012.
