The show begins and our hosts are introducing the jury who will only give opinions tonight and have no bearing on the Final votes which are all public votes tonight. WE have one guest juror tonight a lady.
Song 1 – Santa Daņeļeviča – Your Breath
First up tonight is Santa who has a gentle ballad which is nice but her vocal performance brings it up to another level. Not surprised to see this in the Final and it must have a good chance against the others. Only objection in sending this to Eurovision would be its another female ballad and we are already overloaded with them. But a good song and performance. All of the jury think she has a lovely voice and most like her song a lot.
I have completely lost the live feed now so will report further if it comes back.
Song 2 – The Ludvig – I’m In Love With You
I managed to catch most of this with a new feed. Its much the same as the Semi Final. A nice song but nothing much else. Wait and see them go and choose it now.
Song 3 – My Radiant You – All I Know
Another decent song from a band that have tried so many times to get to Eurovision. It is melodic and fairly catchy and at least a bit different from much else already chosen for Eurovision so far. So it would probably be the best choice of the three so far. I think they have good public support so we shall wait and see if it will be enough.
We are now on a break with the Riga beaver dancing and rapping with red balloons, I cant make this up honest. It is perfectly normal behaviour in Latvia for a beaver.
Song 4 – Triana Park – Line
The last song of the night and by far away my favourite. Its got punk pop elements to it and very catchy. This would be a perfect pick for Latvia as nothing else like it at Eurovision so far, it would sure stand out and it is a good song so all win win I think. Also Triana Park are popular in Latvia and beyond so may well win a public vote tonight. Yes this is my choice for Kiev.
So after a short period of voting we have the artists talking on the stage while we wait for the result.
Just is now back singing a new song while they count the votes.
Another ad break with the breakdancing beaver who also raps. So talented indeed.
The jury give us their final thoughts before we get the official result.
Triana Park are the winners and truly deserved. Good luck to them in Kiev.
