Eurovision 2010: Latvia

April 30, 2010

Latvia’s song for 2010 What For? has an elegant beauty about it rooted in a simple melody and uncomplicated accompaniment. The opening hook completes the package and makes for something different right from the start.

In the promo video, singer Aisha’s childlike vulnerability shines through in a head and shoulders shot.

But whether this will come across in the live performance is questionable. Static shots are often relegated in the live shows, replaced with all manner of moving shots intended to make the finished product a bit more ‘interesting’.

Definitely one to watch out for. A thoroughly adorable effort from Latvia.
