The Voting

The decision as to which song will represent Latvia, will be determined by a 50/50 combination of a jury and televoting. It will also be possible to vote online via the LTV website.

Superfinal

The top three songs will go forward to the so called Superfinal, and again it will be down to a 50/50 vote. However should there be a tie, then the winner will be the song with the higher televote.
