'Supernova' semi-final lineup completed

Latvia's search for Eurovision glory continued Sunday with the second of this year's 'Supernova' shows to sort the hapless hopefuls from the pre-eminent performers. 

Four acts - Samanta Tina, Markus Riva, MyRadiantU, and Marta Ritova made it to the cream of the crop and will compete at the semi-finals next week.

Markus Riva arguably stole the show on Valentine's Day with his optimistic I Can.

Perhaps viewers fell for his charms as the song's freshness contrasted with the nasty weather and chocolate-hearts-and-TV-dinners loneliness of the Latvian winter. Perhaps it was something else.

"Thank you, Latvia!" he said on Twitter.

Watch the full show of the Latvian #Eurovision song contest #Supernova. 

The next show is on February 21, with the finals broadcast on February 28.

Top up your phones - the winner is chosen with a viewers' vote!
