Supernova 2017, the Latvian national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest will take place on Sunday 26th February. 

The Latvian broadcaster, Latvijas Televīzija, announced that streaming from Spotify will be included in the voting during the final of Supernova 2017. The addition is a reflection of the move from physical music sales to downloads and streaming. 

Petri Mannonen, Commercial Director, Universal Finland said, "Supernova partnering up with Spotify is an innovative approach to include digital music consumption in the selection process. It makes sense – as the more popular a track becomes within Spotify the more potential it will have to succeed". 

Przemek Pluta, Strategy and Operations Lead for Universal in CEE and Baltics added, "We are super excited to work together with the  Supernova show. Spotify is booming and is the main source of music for many (young) people in Latvia. It will be the first time that we give data on music consumption back to the audience of the Eurovision qualifications show".
