We received a good feedback from both participants, producers and other showbusiness representatives about the chosen format and the settings of the event,” says Zita Kaminska, the Eurovision project manager. "Eurovision is not only the show for the television audience, but it is also the opportunity for the Latvian musicians to reach the wider public.
