It is coming down to the wire in Supernova 2017, as Latvia searches for its next Eurovision hopeful. Eight acts took part in tonight’s semi-final, with just four spots on offer in the final. Triana Park were declared the winner of the night, with their song “Line”.
The other three spots were filled by My Radiant You, The Ludvig and Santa Danelevica. As always, the results were made through a combined vote of televote/Spotify streams and the professional jury.
Before the live shows, our Wiwi Jury were mostly positive about “Line”. Wiwiblogger Kristin says:
It’s fast paced and deliciously heavy on the techno part. There’s a tiny little techno goblin that lives inside me and he just went crazy. Will it blow the audience away or fall flat live? I don’t know, but I’m excited to see.
Unfortunately, that means the acts leaving us tonight are: Linda Leen, Franco Franco, Lauris Valters and Miks Dukurs. This also meant that only the four acts from the second heat made it through to the final. Talk about a whitewash!
