The national final in Latvia is called "Supernova". The final show tonight consists of 11 participants fighting for the ticket to Turin
The Latvian broadcaster LTV has been organizing the national final for the Eurovision Song Contest called “Supernova 2022” with one online voting, a semi-final and one Grand Final. Out of 130 submitted songs, 17 could reach the semi-final, while 11 will be participating in tonight’s Grand Final.
Among this year’s participants is the well-known singer and composer Aminata, she could reach a 6th place with “Love Injected” and she has been the composer a couple of Latvian entries after that. In the semi-final she could perform in front of the audience because of her corona infection. Instead she performed from home.
The hosts of tonight’s final are Ketija Šēnberga & Lauris Reiniks, Lauris has already represented Latvia with the group F.L.Y. “Hello from Mars” , who made a 24th place only in Riga 2003. The unusual number of eleven finalists is a result of a technical problem in the semi-final, so Miks Dukurs has been post-nominated.
