Wrap-up: Did you answer Aisha's questions?

Posted

Who is she?

Growing up along with the music of Guns N’Roses and Metallica, Aisha received the 2nd place award in the competition of Young Latvian vocalists when being only five years old. Furthermore, at the age of 11, she took part in the flautists’ competition, and only one year later she made her debut as a brass band conductor! Moreover, when Aisha was 14 years old, she received an offer to sing in a rock-band; however, she ruined her chances of becoming a rock’n’roll star after playing hooky in the first rehearsal.

To the Latvian public Aisha became known after winning the TV reality show Fabrika Musical Theatre. Though the invitation she received from the band Opus Pro to join their tour was of much greater significance. Later in 2006, in cooperation with Opus Pro her first debut album was recorded. By now, it seems that Aisha has been present practically everywhere, which is why the press calls her – the bomb.

She has hosted TV broadcasts, participated in TV shows and bewitched the whole Latvia as one of the favourites in the popular TV -show Dancing With the Stars 2. She has also shot in movies, played in theatres, given concerts for soldiers in Afghanistan, been within an ace of winning Eurovision Song Contest national final and released two highly demanded albums.

She'll perform sixth in the first Semi-Final on the 25th of May in Oslo, Norway.

What the fans thought?

"I like this song, congratulations Latvia!" said Burak from Turkey. 

"Not an easy song to deal with, but Aisha does extremely well. The music is particularly eerie, but nice and exciting. The accordion is perfect and most fitting." added Mundu-Sammut from Australia.

They finished 17th in the first Semi-Final of the Eurovision Song Contest with 11 points.
