(0 votes)

Latvia has chosen a winner.  Anmary has emerged victorious from the national Latvian final with her Beautiful Song, when she competed against the top three in a super-final on the same night, with the winning song chosen by 50/50 percentage between a professional jury and the Latvian televoting public.  Similar to the Maltese final, Latvia had guests from Azerbaijan in attendance and the Swiss representatives, Sinplus, also performed their entry.

This will be the thirteenth entry for Latvia in the Eurovision Song Contest, since their debut in 2000.  The country has also won the festival in 2002 with Marie N and the song I Wanna, which was the same year when our own representative, Ira Losco, placed second with 7th Wonder. Anmary will have the opportunity to redeem her country which has been out of the final since 2009.  Latvia will perform in the first half of the First Semi-Final of the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest, on Tueday 22nd May in Baku.
