Latvia | Supernova 2019 Semifinalists Announced
Last week LTV published the shortlisted 33 song submissions that has advanced to the live audition stage and published all of the audition videos online. They requested the fans offer up their opinions - giving each account the option to vote whether they liked each song or not plus also providing a comments box for fans to leave their thoughts on each song and performance. The voting window has now closed and LTV have announced the official Supernova 2019 lineup for their National Selection and which 16 songs can now be called semi finalists!
Offering a good mix of genres and sounds, the successful sixteen are:
Adriana Maglāne - "Scared of Love"
Aivo Oskis - "Somebody's Got My Lover"
Alekss Silvērs - "Fireworks"
Carousel - "That Night"
Double Faced Eels - "Fire"
Dzili Violets ft. Kozmens - "Tautusdziesma"
Edgars Kreilis - "Fire"
Elza Rozentale - "You Came On Tiptoe"
Kris & Oz - "Midnight Streets"
Kristiāna Bumbiere - "Remedy"
Kristīne Pastare (Peress) - "Smaragdi un pelni"
Laika upe - "Listen To The Way I Breathe"
Laime pilnīga - "Awe"
Līga Rīdere - "Būšu tepat"
Markus Riva - "You Make Me So Crazy"
Samanta Tina - "Cutting the Wire"
Each semi final will consist of 8 performances, with the top 3 being chosen to go through to the Final which is expected to take place in February 2019. Semi final allocation is yet to be released.
This year, Laura Rizzotto won our hearts with 'Funny Girl' however only managed to place 12th with 106 points - just shy of the amount needed to qualify for the grand final. This marks the second year in a row that Latvia has stayed in the Semi Finals at Eurovision so LTV will definitely want to find a song that can return them to the final. Check out our exclusive interview with 2018 representative Laura Rizzotto below.
