The show was hosted by Dagmāra Legante and Justs Sirmais (Eurovision 2016). This was tonight’s line-up:
- Sudden Lights – Just fine
- Lauris Valters – Lovers bliss
- MADARA – Esamība
- Ritvars – Who’s counting?
- Liene Greifane – Walk the talk
- Edgars Kreilis – Younger days
- Laura Rizzotto – Funny girl
- Markus Riva – This time
We had some lovely interval acts by Instrumentii (ETSC 1) and Brainstorm (Eurovision 2000). Also a great duet between Justs (Eurovision 2016) and Ralph of PeR (Eurovision 2013) doing a funny take on Latvian medley. Then they revealed the results. It was a 50% jury and 50% televote decision which was never going to be good to Sudden Lights, who won their semi’s televote but didn’t even qualify because of the juries. However, they got a wildcard for tonight’s show! Madara was 3rd leaving Sudden Lights and Laura battle it out! In the end it was revealed that Laura won!
This is the winning performance!
