The jury and the audience will have to choose the best of the 16 candidates that will be able to attract European audiences. This year, the songs and performances that Latvia claims to represent at the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv will be judged by the Latvijas Radio 5 – Pieci.lv jury, led by DJ Rudd, the music editor and music producer. The two semifinals will be joined by experienced musicians Linda Lien and Ralph Eland, as well as producer of the product program Radio SWH, musician Artis Desarias.

In the semi-finals and finals, participants will be judged not only by the jury but also by the audience. Finals will qualify for the four players in each semi-final, which will score four best points in the jury and audience. Along with the semi-finals, eight players will qualify for the finals. Latvian TV and the jury have the right to nominate (or not) the finals one of the semi-finals that do not qualify for the finals, giving the so-called "wildcard". Depending on the LTV and the decision of the jury, eight or nine players will compete in the final.
