On Saturday Latvia’s Supernova decided on the final four acts to qualify for the final, which takes place on 16 February. And this morning LTV took those names, added them with the qualifiers from the first semi, and announced the precise running order of the grand final.
Supernova stalwart Markus Riva will have viewers at the TV and ready to watch on time: The X Factor host has the honour of opening the show. Laime Pilnīga — the winners of the first show — will perform in 6th position, while Carousel — the winners of the second semi — perform last.
And it’s bad news for fans of Adriana Miglāne and other eliminated favourites. Producers have announced that they will not award a wildcard this year, despite the fact they reserved the option to do so on Saturday evening.
As producers wave them goodbye, we wish them the best of luck next year.
