Not only individual talents, but also families, friends and groups are invited to participate in the show.
The genre of talent is not limited – the creators of the show are waiting for singers and dancers, as well as trick masters, acting enthusiasts, handicraftsmen, craftsmen and other talents.
The new show will be hosted by radio voice and improviser Sanda Dejus and internet personality Beta Finish.
“Of course, singers and dancers, who are usually seen in talent shows, will also be welcome, but we hope that applications will be submitted by people whose talent and creativity are also revealed in other genres,” says one of the program’s hosts, improvisation actress Sanda Dejus.
“In addition, it will be not only a talent show, but also a show about the people of Latvia. We have different interests, beliefs and everyday life, but we are united by life here and now – not only in Riga, but throughout Latvia. Therefore, we very much hope that “What do you mean, Latvia?” The participants will bring to the show both what we already know about ourselves as residents of Latvia and the different, new and unprecedented ones, so that the show will show how great and enthusiastic the Latvian society is, ”Sanda hopes.
As the name of the new talent show suggests, “What do you mean, Latvia?” The idea is based on one of the first LTV talent shows – “What do you mean?”. At that time, such Latvian show business and cultural stars as singers Intars Busulis and Lauris Reiniks, actors Kaspars Znotins and Gundars Silakaktins and several other currently recognizable personalities entered the stage for the first time. However, unlike its predecessor, in the new show, LTV wants to address people of all ages with a wide range of skills, hobbies and talents that can be shown on stage to a wider audience.
“Singing and dancing is cool, but” What do you mean, Latvia? ” I hope to see the most hilarious skills, performances that have not been seen before in the general public, ”Hopes Beta Finish. “Maybe there is someone who can paint using only products found in the refrigerator. Even better if you know how to do it on a unicycle… Blindfolded. I am ready to be surprised, ”the host of the program is in a positive mood.
From October 7 to 9, everyone will be able to participate in determining the participants of the show on the LSM.lv portal and vote for their favorite. The following participants will participate in the selection round, which will be submitted to the LTV audience for evaluation at the end of October. A total of 30 participants will start in five selection programs, six in each program. Talents will be judged by a jury of two participants from the selection rounds for the semi-finals. A total of 10 participants will compete in the two semi-finals – five talents in each semi-final. From each semi-final, the jury will determine two finalists. Four participants will take part in the final – the best and most interesting talents of the season, and the winner will be determined only by the vote of the spectators.
