Latvia’s shining supernova goes galactic!

Aminata outdid herself Thursday night at the Eurovision Song Contest 2nd Semi-Final with the help of art director Nicoline Refsing’s stunning videographic design and the perfect teamwork of Austrian Public Television company ORF, which posted a frame from it immediately following as its livestream page feature photo.

With The Guardian sounding off so ominously over her competition, there is no doubt in my mind Europe is in dire need of a dose of Love Injected! No bad omens, here, nope.

God bless you, girl! You’re in, baby, no doubt in my mind.

LTV is accordingly adjusting its broadcast schedule Saturday night for the live Final.

The ten nations now added to the winning contestants culled from the 1st Semi-Final:
