Latvian star Samanta Tina has been sharing her preparations for Eurovision 2021 on Latvian TV, on her show “Kā uzvarēt Eirovīzijā? Samantas Tīnas ceļš uz Roterdamu” (How to win at Eurovision? Samantha Tina’s Road to Rotterdam).
We can reveal that Samanta will be joined by three singers/dancers on stage and the performance visuals will feature art deco elements which will complement her outfit for Eurovision. The same visuals will also be used for her taped back-up performance.
Speaking about this, Samanta says:
“The main thing is the song, the rest are the tools that help to bring it out and tell the message“.
