Three semi-finals introduced

In changes to the upcoming selection, Supernova will see the removal of the Heat rounds of the competition, instead being replaced with 3 semi-final rounds.

Seven artists will compete in each semi-final, with 2 acts qualifying from each show. Therefore, 6 artists will compete in the final of Supernova in February 2018, the winner of which will fly to Portugal as the Latvian representative at Eurovision.

Who are you excited to see in this year’s Supernova line-up? Who would you like to see in Lisbon as Latvia’s representative?
