“That Night” by Carousel has undergone a minor revamp, as the group releases a new version of the song on streaming services.
The Latvian entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 has undergone a minor revamp ahead of the contest in May. “That Night” has been polished up since winning Supernova, with the instrumentation and vocals of the recording being enhanced for the competition. The new version of the song is now available on streaming services.
Latvia is one of a number of countries to make subtle changes to their songs ahead of Eurovision 2019. Both Hungary and Serbia also returned to the recording studio after their national selections, to make subtle tweaks to their entries.
Who are Carousel?
Carousel are formed of Sabīne Žuga and Mārcis Vasiļevskis and have been performing together since 2015. This was the first time that the group had attempted to represent Latvia at the Eurovision Song Contest.
In 2018 Sabīne Žuga and Mārcis Vasiļevskis was two of the writers behind “Who’s Counting?” which participated in Supernova.
Latvia debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2000, being the last of the Baltic nations to join the contest. On their debut, Brainstorm finished in 3rd place with the song “My Star”. Latvia won the contest for the first and only time in 2002, with Marie N’s “I Wanna”. Latvia only participated in 2002 thanks to the withdrawal of Portugal from the contest, as Latvia’s poor result in 2001 had relegated them from the 2002 contest. Latvia struggled in to the contest after 2002, failing to qualify for the final for six years between 2009 and 2014. In 2015 and 2016 Latvia has finished 6th and 15th in the final respectively.
