PER and “Here We Go” won Dziesma 2013 tonight.  With two songs in the finals, both of which were fan favorites, it seemed almost a sure shot that PER had the best chance of representing Latvia at Malmo.  Still, many are shocked that early favorite Samanta Tina and “I Need A Hero” will not be representing Latvia.

PER was one of the three superfinalists alongside Samanta Tina and Marta Ritova “I Am Who I Am.”

Congrats to Latvia!

What are your thoughts? Is Eurovision ready for PER and “Here We Go” or should they have made like Bonnie Tyler and thought about “Holding Out for (Another) Hero” like Samanta Tina? Click HERE to go our forum!

    The poll had “I need a hero as the winner, PER was second…looks like they switched places in the end.

    The 3 Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania have some tendencies to pick songs their public like and not look at what other countryies may like and vote for.
