Lithuania’s selection process is starting to become just a little bit tedious now. The phrase ‘flogging a dead horse’ comes to mind. The Eurovizijos Contest continued on the 6th February with its fifth live show and streamlined, straight forward and coherent are not words that we would associate with the show.Continue reading
Lithuania’s Eurovizijos, aka the most drawn out Eurovision selection process ever, broadcast the fourth of their live shows this evening. The show saw the ten acts that had previously qualified from show one and two who had entered with their own song compete again. This time two more acts were sent home with eight moving forward to the next show.
Tonight saw the third live show for the Lithuanian national selection process Eurovizijos. The third live show was won by Aistė Pilvelytė with her song ‘You Bet’ which won following a combined public vote and jury vote. She and nine other acts and songs from tonight’s show will advance to the next stage of the competition and will be joined in show six by the acts that qualify from next week’s show.
Tonight saw the second live show for the Lithuanian national selection process Eurovizijos. The second live show was won by Rūta Ščiogolevaitė with her song ‘United’ which won following a combined public vote and jury vote. She and four other acts and songs from tonight’s show will advance to the next stage of the competition and will join the five acts who qualified from the first live show last week including Donny Montell and Erica Jennings.
Lithuania have competed in the Eurovision Song Contest 16 times. Despite LT United’s exclamations that ‘We Are the Winners of Eurovision’ in 2006, the band only managed sixth place. This however is still the country’s best result to date. Since the introduction of the semi finals in 2004, Lithuania have qualified for the final on seven occasions. Their most recent attempt saw Monika Linkyte team up with Vaidas Baumila to perform ‘This Time’. The duo shared great chemistry and they even shared a sneaky smooch on stage in Vienna. Despite the song being one of my favourites of the Contest, it only came in in 18th place with 30 points. And so on to 2016. What do Lithuania have in store for us?Continue reading
