The stroke of luck for Latvia in the ESC seems to struggle, the last qualification for a Grand Final was in 2016. Let’s see if there will be an entry, which can change the situation this year. The national final is called “Supernova” and had a semi-final with 15 entries already. Tonight, ten finalists will compete for the trip to Sweden in May. The show will take place in the LTV studio 6 in Riga and will be hosted by Ketija Šēnberga and Lauris Reiniks (a member of the band F.L.Y. in 2003). And there will be jury and televoting to determine the winner.
Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
