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:
Thank you for all of your kind messages ♥️ I gave @Eurovision my all and it was such a wonderful experience. Thank you Latvia for believing in me, I’m so grateful for this opportunity, my life will never be the same. I love you all. Thank you thank you THANK YOU #FunnyGirlSquad— Laura Rizzotto (@LauraRizzotto) May 10, 2018
She also promised a new project involving "music with a French touch" would soon be revealed.
