Another episode with a tie between Ruta and Donny
The sixth episode of the Lithuanian national selection has been recorded on Tuesday in Vilnius and this time eight participants who applied with their own songs performed on stage again. Eurovision fans will watch this episode on the 13th of February at 20:00 CET. The Lithuanian jury (Darius Uzkuraitis, Nomeda Kazlaus, Ramunas Zilnys and Valdas Burnys) presented their points already, but on Saturday the results of international jury and televoting will be revealed as well. At the end of the episode as many as five participants will qualify to the next stage and three will be eliminated. As the show has been already recorded we can present you the Lithuanian jury favourites as well as the running order of the sixth episode and the previous results for each song (in brackets).

The situation from fourth episode repeats as two main favourites clashed in first place in the votes of the Lithuanian jury, and they both received 12 points.

Are you bored of the same groups of participants in Lithuanian shows? We have good news for you! In the seventh episode (on the 20th of February), three acts from second group (singers with songs selected from open submissions) will be eliminated, which means that only 10 entries will remain in the battle and finally all of them will participate in the same episode so the line-up will be refreshed. The first episode will both groups will be aired on the 27th of February, one week before the scheduled semifinal (5th of March). The final of the Lithuanian marathon will be broadcast live on the 12th of March.
