Dziesma (English: Song) was Latvia's national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. The show was produced by Latvijas Televīzija. It replaced Latvia's long-running national selection Eirodziesma in 2013, but was cancelled in favour of Supernova in 2015, due to producing poor results for Latvia in Eurovision.
