  1. Also tonight, Malta’s final, Lithuania’s 3rd heat and Georgia’s 4th show

  2. I love number 7 and 8!
    Līga Rīdere – Būšu tepat
    Samanta Tīna – Cutting the Wire

  3. If I remember correctly, I really liked songs 1, 3, 6 and 7. Good luck to all participants.

    • Līga Rīdere – Būšu tepat has just finished performance..I enjoyed it immensely, vocals very very good, the dress, everything is so simple…moves on the stage, so old fashioned but in fantastic way… <3 It doesn't have chance.. :(

  4. I haven’t listened to any Latvian songs yet. Good luck!

  5. Kris & Oz: I don’t like it.

  6. Alekss Silvērs: I like the instrumental but there’s too much “fire” in the lyrics :P

  7. The only performance I was interested in seeing:

    I love it and hate it lol.

  8. These are the 4 songs that reached the final:

    Aivo Oskis – “Somebody’s got my lover”
    Edgars Kreilis – “Cherry Absinthe”
    Samanta Tīna – “Cutting the wire”
    Laime Pilnīga – “Awe”

  9. So sad for Liga! :(
    But Samanta Tina’s got a BOP!
    She slayed me this time with this GEM! *faint*
    Please Latvia pick thia sassy diva! :D
    We need her in Tel Aviv to CUT THE WIRE! :P

  10. Seems like Līga Rīdere didn’t make it :( She did her best, but I suppose the song was “dated”.
    Edgars Kreilis should try with a Latvian version of his song, or just the instrumental :P

  11. My ranking :
    1. Kris & Oz : 7.5/10 :( (sad face for the elimination)
    2. Līga Rīdere : 6.5/10
    3. Edgars Kreilis : 6/10
    4. Cutting “To” wire (lol) : 6/10 but a very confident performance
    5. Laime Pilnīga : 4.75/10
    6. Alekss Silvērs : 4/10
    7. Aivo Oskis : 4/10
    8. Elza Rozentāle : 4/10

    Overall very good vocals on most occasions, weak songs

  12. I saw the lives, and my fave before, “Cherry Absinthe”, was poor live, even though Edgar is hot… Kris & Oz were robbed, the very best tonight! cool and laid back, so it wouldn’t ever get points from televote :/

  13. I didn’t watch the lives, but judging on the studio versions “Cherry Absinthe” is a clear winner.
