Labas vakaras! Welcome back to Lithuania everyone and Heat 3 of their Eurovision selection process “Pabandom iš naujo!” (“Let’s Try Again”, or “We Go Again”), formerly known as Eurovizijos Atranka.
Tonight sees the last 12 of the 36 entries competing for 6 places in the semi finals which will take place on the 1st and 8th of February, before the Grand Final which will be held in the Žalgiris Arena, Kaunas on February 15th.
Last week saw the second heat performers, with Monique, Kristina Jure, Ruta Loop, Viktorija Miškūnaitė, Alen Chicco and Germanas Skoris going through following the combined jury and public vote.
The jury have already cast their votes in this pre recorded show, which will count for 50% of tonight’s result. During the broadcast, the public will have an opportunity to vote for their favourites to determine the 6 to qualify. Unlike previous years, we will not be aware of the jury votes, nor get regular updates on how the public are voting, until the end of the show.
Performing tonight are :
- The Backs – Fully
- Bernardas – Dad, Don’t Be Mad at Me
- Justina Žukauskaitė – Breathe In
- Rokas Povilius – Vilnius Calling
- KaYra – Alligator
