Latvia: Justs triumphs in Supernova

Justs won the Latvian ticket to Stockholm after more than a two hour show of the Supernova final. In tonight’s final four acts competed for the right to represent Latvia in the Eurovision Song Contest.

Justs was a clear favourite since the beginning of the selection. He won the national final with the song Heartbeat. In tonight’s final show, the public decided to send Justs after an expert jury played an important role during the first two heats and last week’s semi-final.

The result

1st: Justs, 2nd: Catalepsia, 3rd: MyRadiantU & 4th: Marta Ritova

The show broadcasted on LTV was hosted by Ketija Šēnberga and Toms Grēviņš while the popular mascot, beaver featured in different parts of the show. In the interval act, last year’s hopeful Aminata sang a new song called Fighter. Aminata is going again to Eurovision as she is the songwriter of Heartbeat.

Justs will represent the Baltic country in the second semi-final with the aim of repeating last year’s effort by Aminata and qualify to the grand final.
