During the awards show Lauris gave a special performance of his international hit “Pasaka” that he sang in 4 languages along with his duet partners from 3 Baltic states – Luisa Värk (Estonia), Monika (Lithuania) and Aija Andrejeva/Aisha (Latvia).
“I am super excited and surprised for recieving this award, because ” Es skrienu” was in the same nomination already last year. I thought the running process had slowed down a bit, but I was wrong. I’m happy that people still love this song, sing and dance to it, and request it on radio stations. I want to thank my listeners and all radio stations in Latvia for playing my music! Thanks a lot!“, says Lauris Reiniks.
