The Latvian contest commentator Valters opened the conference. It turned out that Sarlote’s number of the running order is 8. This is the date of her birthday too, so it is a lucky number for Sarlote.
Her teacher Liva explained that even though her song Viva La Dance sounds quite easy, it’s rather complicated and turns out to be a serious exam for Sarlote.
