Four move on to fight for Eurovision glory

On Sunday four 'Supernova' finalists were picked to fight for the chance to represent Latvia in the Eurovision song contest, reported LSM.

Singer Justs, the bands Catalepsia and MyRadiantU, as well as singstress Marta Ritova will perform in the finals.

Better luck next year for Samanta Tīna, Markus Riva, Marta Grigale, and Ivo Grīsniņš-Grīslis.

The show was marked by a sort of a shocker as Samanta Tīna, called for viewers not to vote for her after performing. She said Justs and Catalepsia had better songs than her energetic, yet admittedly off-the-mark "The Love is Forever". 

"My ambitions had to be put away," Tīna said, after telling the viewers she doubted she'd make it to the Eurovision top five with this song. 

Justs got the most viewers' votes for his "Heartbeat". He was quick to say he doesn't want the praise to get to him too much.

"Many support me and say everything's great. Of course I like it, but I try distancing myself from it to save my thoughts for work," he said.

Metal act Catalepsia came second in viewers' choice with their unlikely hit "Damnation".

"It's a miracle that so many support us. I hope we'll be liked and interesting to them after the contest too," said Francs.

The jury pushed through Marta Ritova and MyRadiantU.

"It's a good feeling that we did everything we could," Ritova said after performing "Out of this World".

While equally stellar and perhaps prophetic MyRadiantU performed their "We Will Be Stars", much praised by the jury. Band members said they expect a closely contested - and therefore exciting - finale.
