The hosts of Supernova 2018

Justs and Dagmāra Legante will host the three semi-finals and the final of the Latvian national selection. Justs represented Latvia in 2016 with his entry “Heartbeat”. He won the second edition of Supernova. Justs finished in 15th place in the grand final of Stockholm. Dagmāra Legante is a TV personality and model. There will also be a live stream with input from the social media. This will be hosted by Toms Grēviņš and Edgars Bāliņs.

Format changes

New this year is, that Latvian viewers can only cast one vote via phone or text. Spotify streams will be used like last year as part of the public vote. Nevertheless, the jury led by DJ Rudd will also have their say in the results. Two songs of each semi-final will make it to the final on the 24th February.

Hey, I'm Dominik from Germany. Watched my first Eurovision in 2003 and I was in love right away! Attended my first contest in 2011 and every contest since 2013. The same happened with Melodifestivalen. Started watching in 2006 and been to every final since 2017 and try to make it to at least one heat each year, too. After all, Melodifestivalen is the real deal ♥
