Latvia is starting the selection process for their 2023 representative and presents the songs that will compete in the Semi-Final of Supernova 2023!
The jury has selected the 15 artists who will participate in the Semi-Final of Supernova 2023, which will take place live on 4 February. The winner of the competition will be determined by the jury and the audience in the Grand Final which will take place on February 11 and will decide who will represent Latvia at the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool, UK in May.
The presenters will be once again Ketija Šenberga and Lauris Reiniks.
The 15 artists and the songs that will compete in the Semi-Final of Supernova are:
- 24. Avēnija – “You Said”

Among the 15 artists we see well-known names such as Markus Riva who will participate for the 9th time in Supernova and Justs who was the representative of Latvia in 2016. Also participating again are Raum, Inspo, Toms Kalderauskis and Sudden Lights.
In the semi-final, the audience will have the opportunity to meet the participants and evaluate the live performance of the songs for the first time, while in the final the audience will choose the winner of the competition. In both the semi-final and the final, the role of the audience and the jury will be equally important. The winner will be determined by the total score of the calls and text messages from the public and the vote of the jury.
In 2022 in Turin, Latvia participated with Citi Zēni and “Eat Your Salad”, scoring 55 points in the First Semi-Final.
