Carousel will represent Latvia at Eurovision 2019 with “That Night”

More and more acts are being revealed in the coming weeks, but last night, it was Latvia’s turn to pick their Eurovision entry after two weeks of semi-finals in the final of Supernova 2019.

The winner of the night was ultimately determined by televoters, a jury panel and the number of Spotify streams of eight songs. Votes cast via the Alfa app were included in the televoting results. At the end of the excellent show, it was announced that indie pop band Carousel will have the chance to fly the Latvian flag in Tel-Aviv.

The representative of the Baltic country, made up of Sabine Zuga and Marcis Vasilevskis, formed in 2015. Their song “That Night” is a very laid back number, which is also special because it marks Sabine’s debut as a songwriter. It’s worth listening to!

The 2019 Eurovision Song Contest will be hosted at the Expo Tel-Aviv in Israel after Netta won last year with the song “Toy”. The two Semi-Finals will take place on 14 May and 16 May with the Grand Final taking place on 18 May. A total of 42 countries will compete in the contest.
