The 2013 Latvian Eurovision representatives PeR are working round the clock preparing for their forthcoming Eurovision participation. The Latvian duo have a busy and hectic schedule ahead of them.

It is the 14th year for Latvia at Eurovision Song Contest, and it has been 10 years since Riga hosted the event. Eurovision Song Contest 2013 is taking place in Malmö, Sweden. PeR, Latvian representatives at Eurovision Song Contest 2013 are opening the second semi – final of the contest on May 16.

PeR have  their own opinion about opening the second semi-final on May 16- We consider performing the first and opening the semi-final as a good sign. It is not the first time when we are the first on the stage.

On April 18 Swedish choreographer Adrienne Åbjörn arrives to Riga to work with PeR again. There are going to be four people on the stage performing Here We Go as Lauris Valters has joined the team. The choreographer has completely understood the mood of PeR. It is going to be a very lively and natural performance without any traditional boy band moves. We will be as we are in our concerts- PeR have said.

PeR have a full schedule ahead of them filled with many activities. On April 21 PeR will be in London where they continue at a special party. On April 23 and 24 PeR will be  rehearsing with the live band for Latvia Independence Day concert scheduled to be held on 4 May . The band has also been  invited to participate in Estonia days in Malmö during Eurovision Song Contest. Therefore they are going to Estonia on May 25 to rehearse their songs with the live band. Only Estonian, Latvian and Swedish representatives are taking part in the exclusive program of this event. Alongside with the stage performance rehearsals and the interviews to local and international media, Ralfs, the lead singer, attends the school every day as it is his final year.
