LIVE BLOG – 20:25 CET – With Elaine
Well thanks for the build up Garrett. Unfortunately I come to you all live from my sick bed and the only thing being injected into me is a strong dose of anti-biotics, but never mind that. I always enjoy covering the Latvian selection shows. My first dabble into Eurovision was 2008 in Serbia where I met the gorgeous Roberto Meloni and his Pirates of the Sea and I have had a fondness for all things Latvian since then. I look forward to sharing with you, the next list of contestants who wish to step up and take over where Aminata left off last year. She qualified for the Final for the first time since Roberto and Co in 2008 and finished in a very respectable 6th place overall.
