No Eurovision final for Latvia this year

Despite high hopes going into Thursday's Eurovision semi-final in Lisbon, Portugal, Latvian entry Laura Rizzotto failed to make it into Saturday's final with her song Funny Girl.

That means that in the last 10 Eurovision contests, Latvia has made it to the final only twice.

How close she came will never be known as the results were announced in random order with no indication of how many votes were actually cast for each act.

Nevertheless, Laura took the disappointment on the chin and remained upbeat, tweeting:

She also promised a new project involving "music with a French touch" would soon be revealed.
