A total of 28 entries will be received by the broadcaster by the end of the deadline. Only 2012-2016 released songs are allowed. An expert committee will review the received submissions between 23 and 28 April 2016. Each juror on the committee will rate each song between 1 (lowest) and 10 (highest).

The 28 competing entries will be divided into four semi-finals, with seven compositions in each. From each semifinal, the songs that earned first and second place will go directly to the final, while the songs that place third and fourth will proceeded to the Second Chance. The bottom three songs in each semifinal will be eliminated from the competition. After the combination of the jury votes, the entries that scored the highest will be selected for the national final.
