Supernova 2023

Latvia will once again use Supernova to select its Eurovision 2023 representative for Liverpool. This year’s show will be hosted by Ketija Šēnberga and Lauris Reiniks. The Semi-Finals will take place on the 4th of February, with the final taking place a week later.

Latvia’s Eurovision 2023 representative will be selected by a mixture of Jury Vote and SMS/Televote.

Latvia’s Eurovision journey

Latvia made their Eurovision debut in 2000, finishing 3rd with “My Star” by Brainstorm. They have performed at every contest since and managed to win in 2002. Marie N sang “I Wanna,” scoring 176 points and bringing Eurovision to Riga in the process. Latvia also managed to finish in the top 10 two more times, in 2005 and 2015. Latvia’s most recent entry on the Eurovision stage was Citi Zeni, who performed “Eat Your Salad”. The song failed to qualify from the semi-final, finishing 14th with 55 points.
