Latvia sends Pirates of the sea to Belgrade

The Latvians haven’t had the easiest ride in Eurovision over the last few years, their last good result was thanks to Walters & Kazha back in 2005.  Now they have seen Estonia’s and Ireland’s entries and decided to follow suit. 

It was always going to be between Andris Erglis and the Pirates of thesea but few would have put money on Aisha to reach the Super final.  She only managed to come fourth in the televote from here semifinal, and was saved by the jury.

It is in no doubt that Pirates of the sea will meet with as much, if not more, criticism than Kreisiradio and Dustin have.  There were several good ballad on show tonight, but with only one making it through to the super final it is clear that the Latvian didn’t want to go down the Ballad route again.
