Final

Eirodziesma was held at the studios of broadcaster LTV in Riga, hosted by Dita Torstere. Ten songs took part with the winner being chosen nominally by a mix of an "expert" jury and televoting, although the split was approximately 93:7 in favour of the jury. All songs but one were performed in English.

At Eurovision

On the night of the final Brainstorm performed 21st in the running order, after Finland and before Turkey. Renārs Kaupers was the lead singer. "My Star" received 136 points (including maximum 12s from Belgium, Estonia, Finland and Norway), placing Latvia third of the 24 entries. The 12 points from the Latvian televote were awarded to contest winners Denmark.
