LTV have announced details of special guest appearances as well, acknowledging that the evening of 12th February will see all three Baltic nations of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia choose their entries for the 66th Eurovision Song Contest being held in Turin in May 2022.
Celebrating that the Baltic States will elect representatives for Eurovision at the same time, the finalists of the Supernova competition will be entertained by guest artists: participants of last year’s Eurovision Song Contest – pop rock group “THE ROOP” from Lithuania and singer UKU SUVISTE from Estonia.
It would also appear that the televoting is to be unlimited for the Latvian public, stating that they will be able to call and send an unlimited number of text messages from one phone number to their favourite. The televote, along with the jury vote, will decide the winner. We have been advised that the jury consists of representatives of the Latvian music industry, event industry and television, as well as foreign professionals. A full breakdown of the jury results and audience vote will be released after the Final.
LTV are also broadcasting a behind the scenes show called “Supernova Unofficial” which will be shown on the LTV youth platform Youtube channel 16+ and on the website LSM. This show will be hosted by Nancy Garkalne and social media influence Armis J.
The Final of Supernova takes place at 20:05CET on Saturday February 12th and can be watched via the LTV website on channel LTV1. There is also a sign language broadcast on the channel LTV7.
