DZIESMA 2013: PER – HERE WE GO
Good evening and welcome to the final of Eurodiezma, Latvian national final. A some kind of traditional folk song is being performed but with tehno elements. Our hosts are welcoming us to the show. Hosts are now calling contestants to the arena.
Now we are looking Nikos profile as he is getting ready to perform. I have to say that this song is ONE of my favourites, but I am disapointed as his vocals are not so good and dancers aren’t synchronized.
It’s Davids and Dinaras profile on now. Their song is called Fool in love. Vocals are OK. They are on different parts of stage, while two dancers are on center.
You got it right! Its Antra’s profile now. The song is called When you’re with me. Its in western style. She is giving a cabare look-a-like performance with one male dancer.
Profile of group PeR is on screen now. Two male singers a sitting on bar chairs. One is singing, while other is making music sounds rubbing his hands. Vocals are flawless, but music not so much. Also one of them is beatboxing.
Commercial brake is over and we are back with Pienenu Vins’s profile. Whole band is on stage performing The One with female singer. Her vocals are average, but it seems that she has a little bit of stage fright.
As Marta Ritova is coming to stage, her profile is on. As I can see, she is alone on stage, playing piano decorate with lights.
Folks please forgive me for the brake, but I have lost internet connection. But now I am back and we proceed with Sabina’s song Upside Down. Her vocals are doing good as she is dancing on stage with five more girls, and two of them are acctualy backing vocals. Everyone is wearing colorful outfits.
Once again I have to applogize to everyone of you as you missed four songs, one of them being my other favourite and as it seems by comments, it is a favorite to many more people. I am talking about Samanta’s song I need a hero.
Anyway, boys from group PeR are again on stage, since they have two songs in the final. Song is so much more cheerful than Sad Trumpet. Now there are three of them on stage and they are all having fun. The crowd also like them. As all of the songs are now performed, our host is explaning how to vote. Tonight, jury and public will first choose three superfinalists and than out of them the sole winner.
Recap is on now. From recap I can tell you that Liene performed Higher and higher with stage fright in a yellow dress, but her vocals were good. Samanta Tina probably had the best vocal performance tonight. She was accompanied by three backing vocals. Ieva Sutugova had a swing performance in red outfit, with a band on stage and band Headline performed their song Love quite ok.
Now our two female hostesses are back in green room talking to the contestants and giving them some kind of homemade cookies with a message underneath them. Sorry but I don’t know what is that about since I do not speak Latvian. Interval act is on stage now. If I got it right its Cieme Aristokrats band. It looks like they showed top five songs. Once more the recap is being played. Voting is now over.
Another interval act is on stage now. They are called BeatHeaven and they are playing cellos. Vineta is another interval act tonight. She is singing a song in Latvian. Votes are counted and the host is calling all of the contestants on stage as he is going to pronounce the superfinalists. Also on stage are two girls from Spin FM as they have to give some kind of prize. Davids and Dinara won the prize. Niko also won a prize. Band Headline also won a prize. It seems its some kind of a tourist journey. Hosts have the envelopes with the names of superfinalists.
First one is Marta Ritova and Higher and higher.
Second one is PeR and Here we go.
The third finalist is Samanta Tina and I need a hero.
Janis Stibelis is another interval act this evening. He is singing Summer in a city. Voting is open again. And we have another commercial break. We are now introduced to the jury. Ott Lepland is one of them. Superfinalists are going to perform once more. Voting is opened now, not before.
First one up is Marta. In the bottom of screen we can see the curent status of the votes. Marta is now being interviewed by one of our female hostesses. Group PeR is up next. Once again good vocal performance. MADE IN LATVIJA is written on screen now. They are also interviewed. Now is Samanta Tina time. Her performance is just perfect. There is also some smoke involved. PeR is leading with 12 hundred votes over her and Marta. Girls are pretty equal with the votes. Samanta is now talking with our host. Recap of superfinalists is on now. Last years representative Anmary is on stage singing her song Your voice only.
Its time for results. The winner of this years EURODIEZMA is group PeR and the song Here We Go. Boys are really surprised and happy. So this is for tonight. I hope you enjoyed it. We wish all the best to group PeR in Malmo.
