Eurovision 2021 Reaction - LATVIA (Tuneful TV)

15 634 Megtekintés

Hi everyone! Here are my thoughts on Latvia's Eurovision 2021 entry! The song is called, 'The Moon is Rising' and I must say, off the bat, I was blown away by Samanta Tina's vocals! She is a powerhouse! I love the production and the song itself. Well done Latvia!

  • You are right. We do not have a lot of black people in Latvia. I asume that if a black woman living in Latvia had aplied for taking part in video, she would be in it! :)

  • About POC: Latvia is small, relatively to other Europe's countries Latvia is poor. Because of it, here aren't too many imigrants. Only Indian, but they're mostly male students. I think, it's incorrect put on to video some foreigners, because they don't represent Latvia truly. Putting black woman to video just because she is black? I'm not shure. Here in Latvia it's too hard to find black person, who could dance for eurovision's video. Plus, of course, Korona

  • there aren't actually a lot of people of color here in latvia. I've only seen young black men here to study or little kids. I don't think i've ever even seen any in schools i've been to either

  • There are no black people almost. lol.

  • Why you should think Latvia don't have a persion with another skin. We have a lots of them. For exmple like a another participant like Aminata on Eurovision. I think that actully like for Latvia. And im so proud that i'm living here in Latvia.

  • I think this is the best Latvia has been so far

  • I'm so sad that there are a lot of suddenly so "holy" people in Latvia, who are just cutting 2 seconds from the video out of context and are saying that this song is a pure LGBTQ lobby even if it isn't. For me, it may not be a perfect song for Eurovision but too bad that they aren't listening to the message of the song but just making negations from the video. :( That's a big problem in Latvian society that there are a lot of people of which I have suspicions that are afraid of the word "gay" itself. :) I think they just don't have their lives fulfilled and they just try to feel better about themselves by trying to push some other people down. I think that's not just for LGBT "aggressive ideology".

    • Anyways, she has earned this ticket fully - especially in 2020.

  • Sweetheart she would of put it if there were any black people in Latvia but ty for kindness

    Kevins BraaKevins BraaHónapja
  • Yeah, I get that it might seem ridiculous not including any POC, but the fact is that Latvia has the highest percentage of white people in any country in the world (99,9%)

  • Reminds me a little bit of some girl-K-pop-band in the chorus, especially the choreography.

  • Hi! latvian here. Thank you for your reaction and I'm glad you liked Samathas song. She IS fierce ^_^ Regarding why there weren't any people of colour in this video - we really have very few people of color in compamarison to more western counties, thou lately it's changing.

  • Samanta's song has caused some controversy here in Latvia. I tried to find if there's any news written in English about this, but for now I could only find it in Latvian. In short: last week some activists started a signing campaign against her participation in Eurovision 2021 - because they don't like the LGBTQ+ representation, because "traditional values". And today there are news that someone has submitted a complaint to the police that her music video is inappropriately erotic (yes, seriously! a complaint to the police!). I'm a Latvian that never follows the Eurovision contest, because I'm not interested in pop music. But due to the controversy I came to youtube to see for myself her music video, and your video was next in suggestions. So - thanks to those complaining I've now watched both Samanta's and your video as well. I have a suspicion that that wouldn't make those complaining too happy, would it. :)

  • You are cool 😎

    JZ JZJZ JZHónapja
    • Thank you!! 💖💖💖

  • There are _some_ POC in Latvia, but not many! Have met some of them and worked in their production crew! 😊

  • I love the commentary! Living in Latvia gotta say, that there are not a lot of people of colour in our country, though I was alos missing this part of the greater community as well.

  • 😎😎 Black Culture is reall!!! Yasssss!! Aminata was black for Latvia 2015!! I agree there should have been some.

  • Latvians are all white and it is only in recent years that we have black people who've married into this country. Finding women of colour in Latvia is difficult but not impossible, there are few but it is likely they wouldn't wanna be in the video.

  • Totally agree with you... the song is heavily influenced by black culture and one of the writers is from Bukina Faso - Aminata. Tbh I like the song but feel it’s been whitewashed 😢
