DID YOU KNOW?
In the Eurovision Song Contest 2002, her performance of “I Wanna” won the competition and gave Latvia its first ever Eurovision win. According to author and historian John Kennedy O’Connor in his book The Eurovision Song Contest – The Official History, despite its success at the contest, “I Wanna” gained the dubious distinction of being the first Eurovision winner that was not released outside of its own territory. Even in Latvia the single never reached the top 30. In November of her victory year she recorded two new solo albums: one in English, and one in Latvian. She presented the albums to the audience by a tour throughout Latvia. Naumova co-hosted the Eurovision Song Contest 2003 along with Renars Kaupers of the Latvian band Brainstorm, who came 3rd in the contest in 2000.
