Zelma, Beatrise and Inspo, for me. The rest is boring, even Aminata.

It’s weird how you say the rest is boring when Zelma’s and Inspo’s songs are probably the most boring of all of the songs in the competition.

Different people find different things boring. Maybe Fabio connects to the 3 he does not find boring?

I’d love to see Aminata back at Eurovision but I do find the studio song a bit boring to listen to. We know that she can perform live though so I’m hoping the live performance will really bring this song to life as she definitely has a good chance of qualifying if she ends up going to Turin!

Obviously, Aminata seems to be the front runner at this point. As a Latvian, it’s hard to watch year after years a poor selection where maybe one song has a quality to qualify to the esc final.
Aminata probably has the best chances on the big stage but something is missing in that song, which makes me find it boring.
Apart from that Patrik, and RAUM, I like but I can already tell their songs will look dead on the stage.

Inspo and RAUM are my favourites here.

There are parts of other songs that I like as well.

The new version of “I’m Letting You Go” is really elevated in production. Connected with it much more instantly compared to the demo.

Honestly can’t see how (and why) it won’t win Supernova.

If she wins it for her name and the fact she had success years back with Love Injected. The current song goes nowhere.

Are there 17 songs in the semifinal, then a number of qualifiers for the final show? How many for the finals?

10 qualifiers – like in Eurovision. 50/50 televote and jury.
LTV might pick 11th finalist as a wildcard, but only if they want to.

I think they skipped Miks Galvanovskis song. It’s in the description, but not in the video.

Also, it’s the first time for me to agree with Deban about most songs.

Rich Itch is the only one with a bit of creativity and not boring as hell. Still it is not very good.

C’mon there was a track with 27 second piano intro…………..

Rich Itch is my last place. It was submitted as a prank by the other member of comedy act “Mes Jus Milam” (who does not do music at all).
