We have a winner of Pabandom iš naujo – it’s Monika Linkytė

After a thrilling show tonight where 10 acts battled it out, Lithuania have chosen their entrant for Eurovision 2023, and it is Monika Linkytė, who has been voted as the winner of ‘Pabandom Iš Naujo!’ 2023, and will be representing Lithuania at the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool, with the song ‘Stay’.

The final of Pabandom Iš Naujo! took place tonight and was the glittering culmination of no less than 5 weeks of competition for the popular song contest in the Baltic country. A combination of a public televote and a vote from an expert jury delivered their scores, and it was Monika Linkytė that achieved the sought-after victory on the night, with the song Stay, that really sealed victory tonight. She will be competing in the second half of the second semi final on May 11th. It was a relatively long road to success for Stay, competing in Pabandom Iš Naujo! An initial selection of 30 songs was reduced to 20 across 2 heats in January. And in the first 2 Saturday nights in February, these 20 entries were further whittled down to 10, through 2 semi-finals.
