Only a couple of days to go to the Grand Final of Supernova 2018. As Latvia prepares to elect its representative to the Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon, here are a couple of news for this upcoming Saturday.

First and foremost, the acts expected to perform in the national final were six. Two songs should have qualified from each of the three semi-finals. Nevertheless, Markus Riva was admitted to the final after voting failures were discovered in the second semi-final.

And just yesterday the wildcard was announced by national broadcaster LTV: the band Sudden Lights with the title Just fine are also qualified and can therefore still dream of Lisbon.

All this brought the number of finalists to eight. Let’s discover them!
