Selection format

Latvia revamped its selection format from Dziesma into Supernova. 20 songs were picked from the submissions to compete in two pre-qualification rounds, held in February. Four qualified from each heat to the semi-final, two as voted by the audience and two as voted by the jury. The semi-final took place on February 15th half of the eight competitors qualified for the national final. In the final, Aminata received the most votes and was declared the winner. However, Supernova is probably best known for its beaver – Rigas Bebrs!


Aminata, 22, is a newcomer who in the 2014 Eurovision pre-selection finished fifth. She is the winner of a Latvian show Jaunā talantu fabrika which mixes talent contests and reality television. Aminata is studying economics in Riga alongside her musical career. Her debut album was released in early April and next step is Eurovision Song Contest!
