Latvia in Eurovision Song Contest Odds

Latvia has chosen Laura Rizzotto to represent them at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018. Latvia will perform in the second half of the second semi-final on May 10.

The search for Latvia’s 2018 entry started out last year, with Latvijas Televīzija (LTV) announcing that the public thought most of their submitted songs were below par. In the end, though Latvia has ended up with eight songs in their Supernova, all worthy of being Eurovision entries.

Risotto received the most points based on the results of the audience voting and the jury voting at the Supernova competition, which is the national selection stage. "We won! Latvia, thank you for believing in me! Thank you very much! You will be proud of me! Eurovision, we are going!" - wrote the singer on Twitter.

The artist is a native of Rio de Janeiro and has been living in the US since she was ten, where she studied music in Boston, Los Angeles and New York. Her self-written song is about a woman who realizes that she is not respected by the man she loves.

After the debut in the world of music at the age of 15, Rizzotto has published more than 100 original songs. Always very young, she signed a recording contract with Universal Music Brasil .After a period that has seen her occur in major American art academies - also he attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where Luisa Sobral  was also a student   (sister of the winner of the last edition of the Eurovision) - The Rizzotto has also worked with Jennifer Lopez and  Demi Lovato: “I admire both Demi Lovato and Jennifer Lopez as artists and performers. Demi is a great singer and author, and sharing the stage with her was a very special moment. I learned a lot by opening Demi's concerts, as they were the first occasions I performed in a "first class" context, in front of a crowd of more than 7,000 people. This made me even more certain of my passion for music.”

His " Funny Girl " tells about a girl who falls in love with the best friend. This tries to keep his feelings secret, until he decides to open up. Unfortunately, the confession comes too late, because he is already busy. “I hope this song bones push people to be brave. Sometimes we let the fear of rejection limit our behavior. But we must dare! We need to turn fear into courage, and become the main actors in our own history!”

The Brazilian singer Laura Rizzotto is the great granddaughter of the Latvian aviator Herbert Tsukurs, who in 1941 voluntarily joined the punitive command of Viktors Arajs and participated in the massacres of Latvian Jews. Laura was born three decades after his death, everything she knows about the "legendary ancestor," as Herbertz Tsukursa refers to the magazine Vakara Ziņas, Dolores, her grandmother was born in Liepaja, grew up in Riga. She was Tsukursa's only and favorite daughter. "She told me that his great-grandfather was a true patriot of his country, as a real soldier he fought for free and independent Latvia twice - during the struggle for independence of Latvia and World War II," Laura Rizzotto said in an interview.
