This Saturday, nine finalists will face the televote at Latvia‘s Supernova 2020. But before that, wiwibloggs readers also had their say on who they think should win Supernova and represent Latvia at Eurovision 2020. And there was one very clear favourite.
Topping the poll with an impressive 42.97% of the votes is Samanta Tīna. 2020 is her sixth attempt to represent Latvia at Eurovision and wiwibloggs readers are saying that the time is right for her anthem “Still Breathing”.
In second place is another familiar Supernova face. Edgars Kreilis picked up 17.75% of the vote for his song “Tridymite” that uses the crystal as a metaphor for a relationship.
In third place is Katrīna Dimanta who previously represented Latvia at Eurovision 2014 as part of the folk group Aarzemnieki. This time her solo effort “Heart Beats” picked up 7.97% of the vote.
Rounding out the top four is Miks Dukurs. His romantic song “I’m Falling For You” picked up 5.55% of the vote.
The last 12% of the vote was split between Katrīna Bindere (3.87%), Seleste (3.23%), Bad Habits (3.19%) and Driksna (1.5%). While this might not bode well for these acts, as we’ve seen in the past, anything can happen in the live national final.

Supernova 2020 results will be decided by 100% televote
Just days out from the grand final, broadcaster LTV has confirmed that the winner of Supernova 2020 will be decided entirely by the public televote.
The show will still include an expert jury who will give their opinion about the performances. But then it comes to voting, only the public vote will be used. The public will be able to vote via phone, SMS text message and an internet vote.
