The Latvian broadcaster LTV confirmed today that Samanta Tīna will represent the country in 2021.
Samanta Tīna won the Latvian Eurovision selection Supernova with her song “Still Breathing” this February. Before that, Samanta had taken part in Latvian and Lithuanian selections seven times.
The song was composed by Samanta Tīna herself and the lyrics were written by Aminata Savadogo, who represented Latvia in 2015 as singer and again in 2016 as songwriter.
For the first time ever, Latvia has selected their artist internally. Every year since their debut in 2000 they held a national selection to select their representative for the contest.
Latvia and Samanta Tīna was set to close the second semifinal of the contest in 2020. This was revealed this Thursday by the producers of the contest.
