It’s the first Super Saturday of the year, and Latvia’s national final, Supernova, has just concluded its semi-final. Fourteen acts competed to qualify, and only ten acts could move on to the final next Saturday, 11 February. The running order was as follows:

03. Inspo – “Sway”
04. Toms Kalderauskis – “When It All Falls”
05. Katrine Miller – “Beaten Down”
06. Justs – “Strangers”
07. Adriana Miglāne – “Like I Wanna”
08. 24. Avēnija – “You Said”
09. Markus Riva – “Forever”
10. Avéi – “Let Me Go”

The qualifiers were determined by a 50/50 combination of a jury vote and a televote. The semi-final was hosted wonderfully by Ketija Šēnberga and Lauris Reiniks, with stellar video packages for the artists and nice staging overall.
After a final ad break, the qualifiers were announced! In order of being announced, the qualifiers were Markus Riva, Alise Haijima, 24. Avēnija, Raum, Avéi, Toms Kalderauskis, Artūrs Hatti, Sudden Lights, Patrisha, and finally, Luīze. That means we must unfortunately say goodbye to INSPO, Adriana Miglāne, Justs, and Katrine Miller.
Next week on Saturday, 11 February, we’ll find out which of the ten finalists will represent Latvia this year in Liverpool. We can’t wait to see who it will be!
