The Latvian National Final is tonight and if it were up to the ESCUNITED readers, Samanta Tina would become the next Latvian representative.

35% of the votes went to “I need a hero” securing Samanta a healthy lead over Grupa PeR’s “Here we go” which received 17% of the votes, so a significant difference there. The only other song that received a decent amount of votes is Liene Candy and her “Higher and Higher” with 13% of the voters choosing her.

1. Samanta Tina – I need a Hero 35%
2. Grupa PeR – Here we go 17%
3. Liene Candy – Higher and Higher 13%
4. Davids Kalandija & Dinara – Fool In Love 9%
4. Niko – One 9%

All other songs received less than 5% of the votes.

    And we could have another HERO song in EUROVISION after Charlotte in 2008.

    ESCUnited voters predicted correctly in the case of Germany and Austria, so lets hope they are correct with LATVIA – so ir could be 3 in a row and 3 females!
