Latvia: 5 more songs advance to the big final

Two semi-finals and a "second chance" round will  decide about the twelve songs in the Latvian final. In the first two  semi-finals, five songs out of ten will reach the final, three chosen by  televote while the other two will be selected by a specially-formed  expert jury. There will be another chance for the losers of the first two semi-finals in the "second-chance" round where two more songs will reach the final, one  selected by televote and the other by the expert jury. 

The ten hopefuls tonight were (qualifiers in bold):

  • Ivo Grīsniņš-Grīslis - Cinderella 
  • Triānas Parks - Upside Down
  • Oksana Ļepska - Live On!
  • Elīna Krastiņa - Look Back At Me Again
  • Musiqq - Angel In Disguise  
  • Juris Ludženieks - Beautiful World
  • Crazy Dolls - Positively Thinking
  • The Secretz - Summer Night 
  • Lauris Reiniks - Banjo Laura 
  • Dace Upīte - Magnet

The semi-final tonight was hosted by Ugis Joksts & Valters Fridenbergs from the LTV studios in Riga.

Latvia won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2002 with Marie N's I Wanna - do they have a winner in their field this year as well? We'll only know on the 14th of May!
