Dagmara Legante returns as Supernova host for a second year in a row. She’s joined by Ketija Senberga, who hosted the first three “Supernovas” along with Toms Grevins. The news makes 2019 the first time Supernova has an all-female host lineup.
Eight participants will take part in each semi-final of the competition, but only four acts will advance from each semi-final to compete in the final.
On January 26 in first semi-final we will see:
Kris & Oz
Then on February 16 these acts will take to the stage:
Dzili Violets feat. Kozmen
Double Faced Eels
Supernova and Eurovision success
Supernova 2019 will be the fifth edition of the show. In the first two years, Latvia made the final, with Aminata and Justs both acheiving respectable results. The past two years have however been less successful, with both Triana Park and Laura Rizzoto missing out on a spot in the Grand Final.
In our poll for your favourite competing act, Edgars Kreilis leads the field with his song “Fire” and 14% of all votes cast. He’s followed by Supernova veteran Markus Riva on 13% and Double Faced Eels in third with their song “Fire”.
Whatever happens on the Supernova stage, we know the acts will turn up the heat. Are you happy with the semi-final draw? Which one are you looking forward to most? Let us know in the comments below!
