A duo and a long song title! That's the result of Latvia's Junior Eurovision Song Contest selection. Es esmu maza, jauka meitene (I am a little, lovely girl), performed by Daniels & Monta, is the song chosen by Latvia to represent the country in Hasselt, Belgium, on 26th November.

In the show Bērnu Eirovīzija, hosted by 2005 Eurovision Song Contest representatives Walters & Kazha, 10 performers competed to win the Latvian ticket for Hasselt. Daniels Groza and Monta Beļinska from Smiltene, along with their band, ended first with 2,331 votes.
