The Latvian final took place in Ventspils, Latvia tonight. There were 12 finalists with totally different music styles. The best three entries which reached the super final were:
“I Am Who I Am” by Marta Ritova
“I Need A Hero” by Samanta Tina
and “Here We Go” by Groupa PeR (the winner)
There has been a 50/50 jury and televoting in Latvia. At the end PeR could make the game. The funny thing is that Groupa PeR had two acts in the final. The name of the band PeR stands for “Please explain the Rhythm” and exists since 2007. They have been in the Latvian final last year already and came second.
The most known guest for international watches has been Ott Lepland, who sang “Kuula” for Estonia last year in Baku and reached a respectable 6th place. Ott also joined the jury.
