MAY 08: LATVIANS PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS RHYTHM! / VIDEO
The second semifinal technical rehearsals begin today and the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 is in full swing. Latvia opens the rehearsals today and PeR are ready to go… (home). Let’s see how good or bad was their first rehearsal on stage.
WHAT WE LIKED
The song “Here We Go” is the Latvian entry and PeR have an extra person on stage as previously reported on oikotimes.com. Sounda happy and sounds confident. This song opens happily the second semifinal.
WHAT WE DISLIKED
Not sure that the tune will be remembred by the viewers. There is nothing bad with this entry but there is something missing that can make this song a qualifier to the final, something that cannot easily be done for Latvia this year.
