  Latvia wins Eurovision
Updated 26 May 2002, 11.38
Latvian winner Marija Naumova
Latvia has won the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time ever, beating UK's hopeful Jessica Garlick.

Fact File
The points
1st Latvia: 176
2nd Malta: 164
3rd= Estonia: 111
3rd= UK: 111

Marija Naumova sang a catchy number - I Wanna - complete with a mix of Kylie and Bucks Fizz-inspired costumes and dance moves.

Jessica sang her heart out with Come Back but was pushed into third place with Estonia.

She told the BBC: "I am really proud I came third. I have done the job I came to do."

But it was a close competition with just seven votes to separate second place Malta and Latvia. It was Lithuania's judging which settled the result.

It was a great night for the winners as they only entered the competition for the first time in 2000.

Their winning singer Naumova has had a number of hits back home.

This means Latvia, just down the road from this year's host country Estonia, will host the contest next year.
