After a few changes were announced by Ilze Jansone, the producer of the show, 26 songs were revealed as the qualified to the following stage. However, with only one final will take place this year, only 8 entries out of the 26 revealed by LTV would qualify for the live show. Juries selected 100% of the finalists, but they ended up picking 9 instead of 8 and no reasons were given to that change.
Here are the 9 finalists:
- ANNNA – Polyester
- Bad Habits – Sail with you
- Katrina Bindere – I will break your heart
- Katrina Dimanta – Heartbeats
- DRISKNA – Stay
- Miks Dukurs – I´m falling for you
- Edgar Kreilis – Tridymite
- Seleste – Like me
- Samanta Tina – Still breathing
