The final of Latvia’ Supernova competition was held earlier this evening and saw crowned Justs as the winner. The ‘Heartbeat’ singer will represent Latvia in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in May.
There were four entries who had made it to the final of the Supernova contest. As well as Justs, there was MyRadiantU, Marta Ritova and Catalepsia. The winner was decided exclusively by a public televote. The voting was close between the top two but Justs triumped over second place Catalepsia by just over 1,500 votes.
His winning song was penned by Latvia’s representative from last year Animata, who gave Latvia one of their most successful results in years when her song ‘Love Injected’ placed sixth. Justs will be hoping to repeat this success when he competes in the second semi final on the 12th May.
