Latvia in the Eurovision Song Contest

When Supernova launched in 2015, Latvia saw immediate success. After six consecutive non-qualifications, including three last places, Aminata managed a top six finish in Vienna with Love Injected. Justs followed up with another qualification and 15th place with Heartbeat.

Unfortunately, Latvia’s success has started to dwindle over the past couple of years. Triana Park and Laura Rizzotto both failed to qualify for the final in 2017 and 2018 respectively. While Line placed last in the semi-final, Laura’s Funny Girl came close to qualifying, finishing just five points behind 10th placed Hungary.

Do you think Latvia can get back into the Eurovision final this year? Let us know in the comments below!

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!
