In just over a week, the first semi-final of Latvia’s Supernova 2018 will take place. Seven acts will take to the stage next Saturday, February 3. With just two spots to the final on February 24 from each one, it’s going to be a tough competition.
To know who to look out, LTV has revealed to wiwibloggs which acts will perform in each semi-final. Previously, only the details of the first semi-final were made public.

Supernova 2018: New Hosts
Not only are the semi-finals in a new format, the rest of Supernova is changing too. Earlier this week, LTV tweeted a video where one of last year’s hosts, Toms Grevins, announced that he and Ketija Senberga will not host Supernova this year.

The question is, therefore, who will be this years host? Latvian fans have been asking that question across social media, with one rumour suggesting a former Latvian Eurovision act might be filling one of the roles.
As it stands, official announcements about this years hosts, jury and voting system will follow later. We’re just hoping we’ll still be seeing our beloved Riga Beaver, y’all!
