We’re just one step away from finding out Latvia’s Eurovision 2016 representative at Stockholm. The eight remaining acts sang it out on tonight’s semi-final of Supernova 2016, with Justs, Catalepsia, Marta Ritova and MyRadiantU qualifying for next week’s grand final.
Same as the two heats, the televoters and international viewers had their say. After all the public votes were counted and verified, Justs and Catalepsia were announced as the first two acts to advance to the grand final. They were also joined by Marta Ritova and MyRadiantU who were selected by the juries. This meant that Markus Riva was eliminated from the competition, failing to return to the final.
There was drama during the show when Samanta Tina opted to withdraw from the competition. After performing her song “The Love is Forever”, Samanta announced she was withdrawing, saying she thought she did not have the best song in the competition. She believes Justs’ “Heartbeat” is the best song for Eurovision.
