supernova 2018 all acts wiwi jury

Twenty one acts are set to compete at Supernova 2018, as Latvia searches for its Eurovision 2018 act. Only one can follow in the footsteps of Aminata, Justs and Triana Park though, and make it to Lisbon.

To help you make an informed decision on who to pay attention to, the Wiwi Jury – our in-house panel of music unprofessionals – will preview and review each of this year’s acts. It’s time to go hang out with the beavers, because we’re going to pick our favourite for Latvia!

Our jury this time consists of 14 jurors. It’s a truly international group, from Australia, Iceland, Lithuania, New Zealand, Portugal, Serbia, Spain, the UK, the United States and Latvia itself.

Each juror assesses each song independently, and awards each song a score from 0 to 10. Before calculating the Wiwi Jury verdict, we drop the highest and lowest scores to reduce potential bias and outliers.

We’ll be unrolling these one by one over the coming weeks. You can read the completed reviews by clicking on the song title.
