Latvia in the Eurovision Song Contest
Latvia debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2000, and since then the country has participated in the contest every year (21 times). The best result was in 2002, where Latvia won the Eurovision Song Contest with the song “I Wanna” by Marie N.
In the last 12 contests, Latvia have finished last in their semi-finals on six occasions and only managed to qualify for the Grand Final twice.
