The stand out name in this list is Aminata Savidogo. She’s co-written ‘What I had with you’. As you may know, the format in 2017 was two semi-finals, an eight-song final and four-song super-final.

Do you have a favourite artist or writer from this list? Do you think Latvia has what it takes to make the Grand Final in Lisbon?

Latvia has been participating since 2000, and managed to win at the third attempt in 2002 in Tallinn.

Supernova 2017 selected progressive band Triana Park for Kyiv. Here’s their performance at Supernova.
