Back in 2000, Latvia joined the Eurovision family - and they did so with a song many fans still remember. Brainstorm came third with the song My Star, and the country was off with a very good start. Two years after that good start, Marie N took home a very surprising victory.
In 2004, the country failed to reach the final, but a fifth place to Walters and Kazha's The War Is Not Over, brought Latvia back to the top.
A few years later, in 2009 things started going really wrong for Latvia. Intars Busulis represented the country with a song performed in Russian. It failed to qualify for the final, and for the next five years, the same thing happened. It wasn't until Aminata and her 6th placed Love Injected in 2015, they were back into the final. In 2017, the country once again had to leave the contest after the semi-final.
