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

Hi there Anmary. Sorry you could not take my call. I had an offer for a ten disc deal for you from CBS Records. Next time perhaps? And oh, my regards to Paul.

I really like the Latvian song , yes the lyrics are…whatever, but the tune is very very catchy, give it a chance ! I also find the Israeli tune going round and round my tiny mind , must be good then. And last , despite my name I am Italian so no political affiliations there. Love to all

I don’t think that it’s a crap. It’s a good respond that ESC is a crap.
If someone doesn’t get irony, oh well…

The song is crap, well, same as the rest of them so I don’t really see the BIG mistake this tiny nation made as there was nothing to choose from in first place.
And I would go with Marie N (a winner of 2002, also happens to be Latvian) as “inspiration” for outfit change not some looser from last year…
And afterall this “competition” always has a rubbish music anyway.

Another embarrassing placing, no doubt. Firmly following in the footsteps of Aisha and Busulis. At least, Latvia is consistent. They haven’t qualified in the last 4 years.

Actually, if anyone cares to know, Music thief should have won, if you look at the votes of the folk. They SHOULD have won but didn’t, because of the jury- who were all musicians and gave them only a few points. I don’t get Latvians, though I am one. We had one funny song at last- and they don’t go because of the jury. Like- what!? I won’t be watching Eurovision this year, that’s for sure. It will be soo embarassing. Last place for sure. Meanwhile, downloaded Music thief and am listening to it. Imagining them on the Eurovision stage… Read more »

It’s not like they had that much of a chance. Maybe with “My World” or “I want you back”.

But you’re not actually telling us that Disco Superfly, Music Thief or that one with the girl standing on a cake would have any chance of qualifying.
