Latvia Chooses Anmary for Eurovision 2012. Bad Choice.

This just in: Latvia will be eliminated during the semi-finals of Eurovision 2012. That’s because this tiny nation made the BIG mistake of choosing Anmary with “Beautiful Song.” Anmary is real cute. Her song is not.

Voters were apparently seduced by her on-stage costumes changes. Taking a cue from Croatia’s Daria Kinzer from Eurovision 2011, Anmary strips three times during her performance—moving from a blue dress to a black one to a white one. How sad that a gimmick like this was enough to win….

You can listen to her song below. What do you think? Last place in the semi-final? Or next-to-last place? You can check out what Wiwi’s panel of experts thought by clicking here.

“Beautiful Song” lyrics — Anmary (Latvia, Eurovision 2012)

I was born in a distant 1980
The year the Irish Johnny Logan won
Now he’s old, you know, still kinda famous
Could be my way, today’s my day, I’m singing of my song

If I win as many did before me
If this song became a big known hit
I would buy a modern mic to sing it
And all the jobs I did before I’m surely gonna quit

Beautiful song is on the radio, is in the TV shows and so on and on
Beautiful song that everybody knows and everybody loves
Beautiful song is on the radio, is in the TV shows and so on and on
Beautiful song that everybody knows and everybody loves

My mamma said “You gotta be a singer”
My father smiled when gave me my guitar
I did my best, ‘though I can be much better
Higher up the highest and the very further stars

And the day when Jagger, Mick did call me
I couldn’t talk ’cause I was really busy
Recording song with Sir Paul McCartney
“I’m sorry, Mick, I’ll call you back, one day I’ll call you back”

Beautiful song is on the radio, is in the TV shows and so on and on
Beautiful song that everybody knows and everybody loves
Beautiful song is on the radio, is in the TV shows and so on and on
Beautiful song that everybody knows and everybody loves

Beautiful song is on the radio, is in the TV shows and so on and on
Beautiful song that everybody knows and everybody loves
Beautiful song is on the radio, is in the TV shows and so on and on
Beautiful song that everybody knows and everybody loves
