Who are the first chosen stars?05 August 2010 at 19:15 CEST
Latvia picked their singer, Sarlote Lenmane, using a format called Lord Of The Voice. And as they say - that's the key. "It means that the main task for a child is not only to be good-looking and talented, but to work hard and become the lord or the master of their own voice." Irene Gruzite, the Latvian Head of Delegation said.
In the end it was Sarlotte, who took the trophy, out of 300 entries and will represent the Baltic republic in Minsk. Congratulations!
