Latvian broadcaster LTV has confirmed that they will participate and will come this year with a revamped version of Eirodziesma. Eirosziesma 2012 will include this year for the first time an internet vote that will be taken into consideration when the broadcaster chooses songs to go through to the live shows. Submissions are being taken from September 1st up until October 14th, then from the 20th of October to November 1st online voting will take place on those songs. Users will be able to rate and comment on the songs then a seven member jury will look at the responses and take them into account when choosing the 20 finalists.
Eirodziesma will have three shows this year, the first semi-final on January 7th and the second on January 14th. Five songs will go through form each semi final to the final in Ventspils on February 18th. The winner will be chosen by a 50/50 public and jury vote.
