Latvia were the second country this evening to kick off it's Eurovision Selection process, as the first semi final of Supernova 2018 began. LTV hopes that who ever wins the final will hopefully bring the coverted trophy back to Riga.
Tonight's edition has seen two artists qualify for the Grand Final. They were Edgars Kreilis, and Liene Greifane. A change of voting that saw Latvian's only being allowed to cast one vote by SMS or phone, combined with the number of Spotify streams, as well as points from a jury saw these two performers qualify. A total of 21 artists will compete in the Latvian national selection, which sees only two performers from each semi qualify for the Grand Final. Tonight saw the 7 following artists try to make it to the final to be held on the 24th February 2018.
1) Katrīna Gupalo and The Black Birds "Intoxicating Caramel"
