I still think about how banjo Laura was robbed?
Unfortunately after hearing her live, she can’t sing 🙁
Latvia, I hope you pick the best choice you can in the selection to try to have a chance to qualify or at least die trying. Good luck.
Sudden lights is good.
I don’t know we have this group situation with Ireland, Slovenia and now maybe Latvia I am sure they won’t get all to the final because imo they are all swimming in the same direction.
But it isn’t my kind of music so maybe that’s the main issue
Luize wasn’t good live too
Maybe the only remainig option for me now is “Hush”
1. Sudden Lights – Aij?
2. Inspo – Sway
3. Raum – Fake Love
4. Lu?ze – You To Hold Me
5. Toms Kalderauskis – When It All Falls
I think there are only three options. Sway, Hush, Aij?. I personally prefer Sway and Aij?, as they have this Grand Final performance vibe. Depending on Hush performance, it could be a contender too but I feel lesa optimistic about that
For the win, I think its either Inspo, Patrisha & Sudden Lights (darkhorse) !
From Latvian perspective, Sudden Lights is not a dark horse at all – it is the main contender, as they are the most recognisable act, alongside Patrisha and Markus Riva.
can’t wait for Latvian public to completely ignore them and end up 6th or something.
im still not over last year’s result..
I think they might manage to get a top 5 finish this time, alongside Sudden Lights, Patrisha, RAUM (his performance seems good visually) and a 5th one, perhaps Adriana Migl?ne, as she has a huge following to support her, or maybe a surprise – like 24. av?nija, or maybe Justs?
Will see tonight’s performances.
I am very curious for the Latvian semi-final tonight. I don’t think any of the three front runners will have any difficulties to reach the final, and I reckon it’s also looking good for my personal third favourite 24.Avenija, although they didn’t get that much love in this poll. So I’ll be very relaxed and focused on the performances.
I think the Latvian public will go for Sudden Lights and the jury for INSPO. I would like either to win but INSPO is my favorite.
Sudden Lights is definitely the favourite to win, they have gained a lot of popularity in the last year.
they gained popularity in 2018 when they performed “Just Fine” in Supernova 🙂 and after then they just keep going higher and i am very very proud of ma boyz !
rooting for Latvians to not be the ones who votes for media articles or tv stars but actually for song and it’s meaning and quality !!!
