Latvia 2018 🇱🇻 Here are the participants for Supernova
LATVIA – Latvian national broadcaster presented the acts for the 2018 edition of Supernova, the show through which the country will decide its participation to the Lisbon Eurovision Song Contest. The press presentation took place in Riga’s Alfa Shopping Centre this morning.
Latvia has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 18 times since making its debut at the contest in 2000, where the group Brainstorm finished third with the song “My Star”. Latvia won the contest in 2002, with Marie N and the song “I Wanna”, defeating Malta by 12 points. Latvia is the second former Soviet country to win the contest. The 2003 contest was held in the Latvian capital Riga. The country achieved its third top 10 result in 2005, when Walters and Kazha finished fifth with “The War Is Not Over”.
Latvia did not participate in the final from 2009 to 2014, when they failed to qualify from the semi-finals for six consecutive years, including finishing last on three occasions, in 2009, 2010 and 2013. Latvia qualified for the final for the first time since 2008 at the 2015 contest with Aminata and the song “Love Injected”. Her sixth place in the final is Latvia’s fourth top 10 finish and best result in the contest since 2005. Latvia made its 10th appearance in the final in 2016.
