It’s a long way from Riga to the finals of Dziesma 2014 in Ventspils. But tonight six of the 12 acts competing in the first semi-final have moved one step closer.

In no particular order, here are your six qualifiers:

CAKE TO BAKE!!!!!! I can’t believe that made it to the final. That’s amazing hahahaha! Samanta Tina & Niko are my favourites 🙂 Enjoy the other ones too. Latvia has a cool selection this year!

It’s great that Tina made it. Really weird outfit though.

I feel bad Dejo Ta was out. I knew their live was never going to be as good as their studio, but they surprised me and my expectations.

These are all great songs – hope the live performances were just as good. Latvia’s selection always has good songs; it’s just that usually the wrong one is selected, I guess.

Niko was the only one I really cared for in this semi. But I’m so excited for my favourite Katrine in the next one.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Latvia MAY ACTUALLY MAKE THE FINAL of ESC this year. There are some good songs in the final already!
