Lithuania - Six days since the second heat (out of five) was held, three songs were announced: they get to move forward to the semi-finals. Like last week, the full jury results are not known but three out of the eight entries discovered live last Saturday were declared winners. The first heat saw a surprise as the third of televote did not make it to the semifinal. Will it be the same this time around? Check it out!
And it appears that this time around, the songs that came in the Top 3 of televote made it to the semi-final! We don’t know if the order is the same though, but Timohi, Ieva Zasimauskaite & Gabrielius Vagelis and Beissoul & Gabriele Griciute all made it to the final.
As a reminder, this is how the televote had ranked the entries:
12. Timohi – 966
10. Ieva Zasimauskaite & Gabrielius Vagelis – 638
08. Beissoul & Gabriele Griciute – 624
07. Mundis & Elvina – 549
06. Alive Way – 314
05. Giedre Smolskaite – 300
04. Nerius Peciura – 121
03. Feliksas Merlin – 29
It may come as a surprise that even with the 50% vote, joke act Timohi made it through as the panelists during the live show presented many objections to it, but the 12 pts from televote made it hard to overcome. However, let’s remind our readers that the panelists are not the full members of the jury (which is why results are not announced during the televised live show) and that the full results are not known.
So far, we have six songs qualified for the semi-final, two of which are performed by the same singer, Gabielius Vagelis having made it from both heats he was in:
- Saulės Broliai – Loreen
- Andrius Pojavis – Something
- Gabrielius Vagelis – Sacrifice
- Timohi – Time for Life
- Ieva Zasimauskaite & Gabrielius Vagelis – I Fall in Love
- Beissoul & Gabriele Griciute – Beautiful Life
Next heat tomorrow! What do you think so far of the six songs in the semifinal?
