Latvia: Triana Park win the Supernova 2017 final with “Line”

79

Get the neon out of the closet! Following four weeks of competition, a lot of Riga Beaver and a four-song showdown in Sunday’s final of Supernova 2017Triana Park have won with their song “Line”. Next stop? Eurovision 2017 in Kyiv!

To say that Triana Park and lead singer Agnese Rakovska beat to their own drum is an understatement. Loud, brash, edgy and just a little bit dirty, they mix electro, hip-hop and pop to great effect — and with their very unique signature. Go to their web site. As of February 26 you’ll see Agnese wearing a cap that says KRAP. She does her and she does it right!

Triana Park — “Line”, SUPERNOVA 2017 FINAL

Our poll favourites, the group beat Santa Danelevica, The Ludvig and My Radiant You.

Voting was decided solely by the public’s vote and Spotify streams.

The jury panel was present, however, to give their thoughts about each act.

Amongst those on the jury was Latvia’s sole Eurovision winner, Marie N. Will Triana Park be able to replicate her feat from 2002 and bring the contest back to Riga?

 

Supernova 2017 Final — Running Order

1. Santa Danelevica — “Your Breath”
2. The Ludvig — “I’m In Love With You”
3. My Radiant You — “All I Know”
4. Triana Park — “Line”

Also in tonight’s show, we saw performances from a number of acts. Juror (and Latvia’s 2009 act) Intars Busulis took to the stage, as did 2016 representative Justs. Justs performed his new single, “Message To You”, which includes lyrics about following back on Instagram. (We know y’all saw those photos and are looking for more…)

Riga Beaver, meanwhile, kept our nerves down with some rhythmic ribbon twirling. We also got a “prophecy” that he may read out Latvia’s votes at Eurovision! Could the dream finally come true for his fans?

What do you think about Latvia’s decision? Can Triana Park bring them to the final for the third year in a row? Shout out your thoughts on the wiwibloggs app, or let us know in the comments section below!
