Aminata wins Latvia's vote for Eurovision

Singer Aminata won the Latvian final of this year's Eurovision song contest Sunday night, meaning she will represent the country in May's Eurovision semi-final - and hopefully the grand final after that.

LTV's coverage won much praise on social media networks too, with Eurovision aficionados around the globe saying Latvia's was one of the most entertaining national finals.
