There had been much speculation after Copenhagen if Latvia would attend Eurovision 2015. They have not qualified for the Grand Final at Eurovision since 2008 when their song ‘Pirates of the Sea’ reach 12th in the final.
2014 saw LTV (Latvian National Broadcaster) introduce the ‘Made in Latvia’ concept to their National selection in the hope of gaining more national talent and luck to get them to the Grand Final at Eurovision. We certainly believe that Aarziemnieki should have qualified for the Grand Final this year.
Today however is good news as LTV have announced that Latvia they will participate at Eurovision 2015. No details as of yet how their selection process will be conducted.
Latvia won the Eurovision song contest in 2002 when Marie N won with the song ‘I Wanna’.
