The moment has come to elect the representative of Latvia to the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon! After three semi-finals, the final of Supernova 2018 takes places tonight in Latvia.
It has been a great national selection in the Baltic republic. It took three semi-finals and a wildcard to establish the ultimate lineup for the grand final. Seven acts will compete for the golden ticket to Lisbon.
